Lynx Aurora 8 Mastering A/D D/A Converter Specifications

  • I/O - 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.
  • Front Panel Controls - 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 recalled.
  • On-board 32-channel Mixer - 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.
  • LSlot for Expansion - The LSlot expansion port accepts cards that provide compatibility with current and emerging digital interface standards, including ADAT and others.
  • SynchroLock Jitter Reduction - Lynx's proprietary SynchroLock jitter reduction technology, from the AES16, is also included. This LYNX-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.
  • DB25 Connectors - 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 ProCo, Hosa, and others.

Extremely good value for money, however May 1, 2012
Reviewer: Yin Chun Chow  
this unit does not sound as good in 44.1/48k than in 88.2/96k.  

In fact, once you get accustomed to the difference between 44.1k/96k, you notice it more often.  There's this slight mud/haziness to it, however it is still EXTREMELY good value and unbeatable sound at this price for the number of I/O.

Exactly as advertised May 27, 2011
Reviewer: Rob S from New York, NY  
The Aurora 8 is 8 channels of super transparent AD and DA conversion.  I use mine with ADAT inputs and outputs and have never had an issue.  Incredible value for the money.

Clean as a whistle! May 9, 2011
Reviewer: Gregory Houser from Malvern, PA United States  
I like the fact that the Aurora offers so many options regarding how you choose to connect it within your recording chain (FW, PT, TDIF, Digilink)

Big thing however, is that this AD/DA is clean.  For me, it's what makes this unit part of my "go-to" chain (despite having other AD/DAs which cost more, I end up going back to this more often than not).
