What We Think

Lynx has announced the aurora(n) - a reimagining of their 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.

Manufacturer's Description from Lynx

With a total of 16 ins (8 preamp ins plus 8 line ins) and 8 line outs, the Aurora(n) PRE 1608
TB comes with two LM-PRE4’s and USB connectivity.

The LM-PRE4 is sonically matched for the Aurora(n) with all the transparency, detail and flexibility you’ve come to expect from Lynx.  The convenience and utility of this new high performance preamp not only compliments the interface, but when combined with the Aurora(n)’s built in microSD recorder the LM-PRE4 transforms the Aurora(n) into a stand-alone mobile recording device. Each LM-PRE4 module not only adds the flexibility of four channels of mic/line/Hi-Z inputs, but also adds an additional four channels of A/D conversion.

Key Features

Up to 68.6dB gain in 1dB increments

Independent 48V phantom power, phase, high-pass filter, and pad for each channel

Dedicated line level signal path provides performance identical to other (AIO8E) input channels

Two audiophile-grade headphone outputs

1 in/3 out Word clock I/O with Lynx exclusive second generation SynchroLock-2 sample clock technology
