The LynxTwo, from Lynx Studio Technology Inc., is a half-size PCI audio card that is compatible with a Windows or Macintosh based audio or video workstation.
The unit will be available with three analog I/O configurations: the four I/O "A" model; the two-input / six-output "B" model and the six-input/two-output "C" model. Analog I/Os are balanced and offer +4 dBu or -10 dBV line levels, which are selectable in channel pairs through software.
The digital I/O capabilities of the LynxTWO include one I/O port that supports both AES/EBU and S/PDIF formats at 16, 20, and 24 bit depths. The transformer-coupled ports are provided on XLR connections and operate at sample rates up to 96 kHz. A sample rate converter provides up to 3:1 rate conversion on digital input signals.
To accommodate audio channel expansion and a variety of interface standards, LynxTWO incorporates two LStream ports that are capable of transferring 8 I/O channels of 24-bit / 96 kHz audio data. The internal port allows data routing and synchronization between multiple LynxTWOs.
The external port provides a connection point for various LStream interface modules. Lynx will initially offer ADAT and TDIF modules, with the former providing S/PDIF optical (TOSLINK) I/O.
The unit ships with six-foot shielded cables for analog and digital audio connections and two-foot cables for external sync I/O.
The package suggested list price is $1,095.
