Lynx Aurora 8HD Mastering AD/DA Converter w/ LT-HD Card Installed

The Lynx Aurora 8-HD Mastering A/D D/A Converter, world-class analog to digital and digital to analog conversion in a compact one-rack space format with seamless integration with Pro Tools HD!

Lynx Aurora 8-HD Mastering A/D D/A Converter Details

Since their introduction in 2005, the Lynx Aurora converters have provided high quality AD and DA conversion for professional audio studios around the world. With the LT-HD LSlot card, Aurora converters are seamlessly incorporated into Pro Tools|HD studios via HD Core or Accel Core cards using standard DigiLink cabling. All Aurora I/O functions for parameter control are controlled and monitored within Pro Tools.

The Lynx Aurora 8-HD is an 8 channel 24 bit /192 kHz analog-to-digital/digital-to-analog converter in a single-space rack-mountable case. The analog inputs and outputs are electronically balanced. The AES digital I/O is transformer coupled and is capable of driving 500 feet of cable at 192 kHz. Both dual and single wire AES channel modes are supported at sample rates up to 192 kHz.

The LT-HD card has one Primary and one Expansion DigiLink port, which allows daisy-chaining of multiple Aurora converters and other DigiLink devices. Aurora HD models offer audio signal latency identical to that of the Digidesign 192 I/O for accurate delay compensation within ProTools - no manual delay adjustments are required.

When used with the Lynx AES16 / AES16e cards Aurora converters can also be used for applications other than Pro Tools. All front panel functions and other low-level options can be controlled from the Lynx AES16/AES16e digital interface cards on Windows and Macintosh platforms. This allows the Aurora HD converters to multi-task, for use with native applications such as Logic, Nuendo, Cubase, Sequoia, Samplitude and many others.

Lynxâ??s proprietary SynchroLock sample clock technology is also included, an exclusive feature that provides 3000:1 jitter attenuation for external clock signals. The SynchroLock clock generatorâ??s output is an extremely low jitter clock source that drives the converters inside of Aurora and is available as an output for studio synchronization of other digital devices.

All analog and digital connections use DB25 connectors with industry standard pinouts which are compatible with off-the-shelf cables from manufacturers such as Lynx and Mogami.
