Quick Overview

The Aurora 16™ features 192 kHz analog to digital and digital to analog conversion with front panel control of all routing and sample rate options. Extended functions in Aurora are accessible via computer with the Lynx AES16 or by infrared using compatible laptops and handheld Pocket PCs. The rear panel has Clock and MIDI In and Out connectors and an LSlot bay, for the optional use of ADAT and other audio interfaces. Buy ANY new Aurora converter from February 18, 2013 until April 30, 2013 and receive analog I/O cables for free from Lynx. $320 Value!



Manufacturer Part Number: AURORA 16

Aurora 16 is a 16 channel 24-bit/192 kHz analog-to-digital/digital-to-analog converter in a single-space rack-mount case. Representing Lynx Studio Technologys first rack-mount product, Aurora was developed using the next generation of Lynx acclaimed conversion technology and rock-solid digital interface circuitry.

  • Simultaneous 16 Channel Analog I/O and 16 Channel AES/EBU I/O

  • 24 Bit / 192 kHz Mastering Quality A/D and D/A conversion
  • 192 kHz AES/EBU I/O Supporting Single and Dual Wire Modes
  • Single Rack Space Configuration
  • Extensive Remote Control Capability via Lynx AES16, IrDA and MIDI
  • LSlot Expansion Slot for Firewire, ADAT, and Future Interface Options
  • On-board Digital Mixer Provides Flexible I/O Routing
  • Word clock I/O with Lynx SynchroLock Jitter Reduction Technology

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.

Auroras 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 recalled.

The 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 monitoring.

The LSlot expansion port accepts cards that provide compatibility with current and emerging digital interface standards, including ADAT and others.

Lynxs 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.

All analog 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.
