Lynx Aurora 8 at a Glance:
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.
All analog and digital connections use DB-25 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.

Lynx Raises the Bar
by Mark J Seagraves from Dallas TXI do a lot of audio post work in a relatively small market, so I end up doing voice-overs one day, Foley and SFX the next. Then I do music as well. I wanted converters that where really clean with ver... read more [+]y high headroom and very low latency. I feel I made the right choice. The Aurora is incredibly transparent and the AES card is rock solid. High-end conversion is really the heart of a great DAW and Lynx is a great value in an arena filled with hype and hyperbole. close [-]

Choosing the right high-end converter is rarely a matter of better or worse, simply a matter of preference. While buzzwords such as "transparent," "open," and "clean" get thrown around like a frisbee disc on a college campus, what you really want from your converter is to get out of it what you put in. Lynx has always been my favorite for doing just that. While many converters add their own sonic character to your tracks, the Lynx Aurora 8 is by far one of the most natural sounding boxes in existence.
