Lynx Studio Audio Technology says users of its LynxTWO and L22 audio cards asked it to update the platforms for use with PCI Express forms.
The result is the E44 and E22. The E44, expected to ship soon, offers four analog channels in and four out along with four AES digital channels. The E22, a Q1 2015 delivery, is a two-channel model.
Digital conversion is courtesy of onboard Lynx Aurora converters. The onboard converters provide 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz, 176.4 kHz and 192 kHz conversion. Mac OS X and Windows 7/8 drivers.
Lynx Co-founder and Chief Hardware Engineer Bob Bauman said in the announcement, “Now that most computers only offer PCI Express, we have had many requests from our customers to port the LynxTWO design over to PCI Express.”
Expected MSRP for the E44, shown, is $1,095, for E22 $795.
