24-bit / 192 kHz Analog I/O 8-channel 24-bit / 192 kHz Digital I/O MIDI I/O,
with LT-HD card pre-installed.
and Aurora 8 are 16 and 8 channel 24-bit/192 kHz
analog-to-digital/digital-to-analog converters in a single-space rack-mount
case. Representing Lynx Studio Technology’s first rack-mount product, Aurora was developed
using the next generation of Lynx acclaimed conversion technology and
rock-solid digital interface circuitry. Both units are identical in features
and specifications except for the number of I/O channels.
Aurora provides professional I/O
interfaces for ease of installation in most studios and live sound
applications. The analog I/O is electronically balanced and supports both +4dBU
and –10dBV nominal levels. The AES digital I/O is transformer coupled and is
capable of driving 500 feet of cable at 192kHz. Both dual and single-wire AES
channel modes are supported.
Aurora’s ergonomically designed front
panel provides easy access to important controls and signal status. Unique to
this product class, Aurora also offers extensive remote control capability. All
front panel features as well as other low-level options can be controlled from
the Lynx AES16 digital interface card on Windows and Macintosh platforms; a
Pocket PC or laptop via infrared; MIDI; or an
LSlot interface card. Multiple remote set-up configurations can be stored and
on-board 32-channel digital mixer provides extensive routing and mixing
options. Acting as a powerful patch bay style digital router, Aurora can easily
route signals between analog and digital inputs on a channel-by-channel basis.
Mixing capability on each output also provides flexible zero latency
expansion port accepts cards that provide compatibility with current and
emerging digital interface standards, including ADAT and others.
proprietary SynchroLock™ jitter reduction technology, from the AES16, is also
included. This exclusive feature provides extreme jitter reduction of up to
3000:1, allowing Aurora
to output an extremely clean clock output for driving the digital audio system.
and digital connections use DB25 connectors with industry standard pin-outs
which are compatible with off-the-shelf cables Lynx as well as from
manufacturers such as Mogami, ProCo, Hosa and others.
