What We Think

The Lynx Aurora(n) is a profound reimagining of their original Aurora converters, which have been one of THE most trusted converters in professional studios for the past decade. The new units feature upgraded A/D and D/A converters utilizing the same technology that led the Hilo to the front of the pack. With modular connectivity via Lynx's existing (and expanding) selection of L-Slot cards you don't have to worry about these units becoming obsolete like that old firewire interface you used 5 years ago. Aurora(n)'s come in 8, 16, 24 and 32 channel varieties and are upgradable to add mic preamps, analog summing and additional digital I/O.

Lynx Aurora(n) Series - First Impressions

In this video, Sound Pure Pro Audio specialists Marc Kuzio and Chuck Giardino introduce the Lynx Aurora(n) Series of converters. This new generation of Aurora converters has blown us away with its level of detail, functionality, and ease of installation. It can also be used seamlessly with the previous generation of Lynx Auroras. 

Manufacturer's Description from Lynx

The Aurora(n) converters represent the culmination of years of research and development dedicated to significantly improving upon the well-regarded Lynx Aurora 8 and 16 models used by professionals around the world.

For the first time Lynx introduces a 24 and a 32 channel model along with all new 8 and 16 channel models.  Aurora(n) significantly improves upon the spectacular performance and specifications the world has come to expect from the well-regarded Lynx Aurora line – each in a single rack-space. Providing an even greater level of wide-open, uncompressed and unequalized audio for studios, mastering facilities, remote recording, broadcast, live performance and production installations, these Aurora(n) converters set a new standard in analog to digital and digital to analog conversion. Leveraging technology that was previously reserved for the Lynx Hilo combined with the latest FPGA processors, the Aurora(n) achieves the pinnacle of transparency and low distortion and noise.    

A converter for now and for the future

The Aurora’s future-proof design is expanded in the Aurora(n). New enhancements and capabilities will be made available through firmware upgrades. LSlot expansion slots allow for a wide array of current connectivity options to include Thunderbolt, Dante, ProTools|HD, USB and future formats. Expandable audio I/O modules are being developed to include pre amp, analog summing, digital I/O (AES3 + ADAT) which will be available in 2017. This makes for an Aurora(n) that will perform exceptionally for you now and remain innovative well into the future.

Also added to the line are two audiophile-grade headphone outs with independent volume control. A 480 X 128 TFT LCD display provides immediate access to all levels and functions – also configurable for future functionality.
