Lynx Studio Technology debuted the Aurora line of digital audio converters, which come in single-rack space eight- and 16-channel models.
The Aurora 8 and 16 have 192 kHz A/D and D/A conversions, with front-panel control of routing and sample rate options. Extended functions are accessible via computer with the Lynx AES16, or by infrared using compatible laptops and handheld Pocket PCs.
Front-panel controls include sample rate selection; sync source selection; analog/digital output source, selectable from analog inputs, digital inputs or LSlot inputs; 16 channels of input and output metering; single- or dual-wire AES selection; and indicators for SynchroLock jitter reduction status.
The rear has MIDI In and Out connectors and an LSlot bay, for the use of ADAT, Firewire and other audio interface cards.
Aurora's 32-channel digital mixer provides routing and mixing options.
