Premium-quality AES/EBU Audio Interface

The Lynx Studio Technology AES16 multi-channel interface is the ideal way to integrate digital consoles, multi-channel A/D and D/A converters, and hard disk recorders with computer-based workstations.

Lynx Studio Technology AES16 192kHz Multi-channel AES/EBU Interface at a Glance:
  • Supports up to 16 channels of 192kHz audio I/O
  • Exclusive SynchroLock technology assures jitter-free performance
  • Low-latency performance and reduced CPU load
  • Mastering-grade sample rate conversion
  • Onboard digital mixer
Supports up to 16 channels of 192kHz audio I/O

The AES16 offers unprecedented AES/EBU channel capacity and routing flexibility in a single PCI card format. With support for up to 16 channels of input and output at sample rates up to 192kHz, the AES16 turns your computer into a powerful digital router or patch bay with extensive flexibility with minimal cabling. Most importantly, the AES16 supports the emerging single-wire 192kHz standard and is compatible with existing dual-wire AES/EBU devices. Up to four AES16s can be installed in a single computer.

Exclusive SynchroLock technology assures jitter-free performance

Offering a solution for jitter problems in AES signals, the AES16 incorporates a new Lynx technology called SynchroLock that provides extreme jitter tolerance at all inputs. By coupling statistical analysis with low-noise clock generation techniques, SynchroLock is able to extract a very clean clock from AES signals affected by long cable lengths and other noise sources. The clock output of SynchroLock can also be used as a very accurate word clock source for other studio devices.

Low-latency performance and reduced CPU load

Glitch-free recording and playback is assured due to the AES16's large onboard buffers and extremely efficient zero-wait state DMA engine. These features provide tolerance to system latencies and significantly reduce load on the host CPU. Data transfer hardware and software are highly optimized to provide extremely low latencies for ASIO and other real-time applications.

Mastering-grade sample rate conversion

The AES16-SRC model offers eight channels of mastering quality sample rate conversion to accommodate studios running multiple samples rates or signals not locked to "house sync".

Onboard digital mixer

The onboard digital mixer offers flexible patch-bay style routing and digital mixing. It provides zero-latency 32-channel/32-bit digital mixing with 16 sub outputs. Multiple dither algorithms per channel are available.

Lynx Studio Technology AES16 192kHz Multi-channel AES/EBU Interface Features:
  • 16-channel AES/EBU Digital I/O
  • 24-bit/192kHz single-wire and dual-wire Modes
  • SynchroLock jitter attenuation
  • Word clock and multi-card synchronization
  • Powerful mixing and routing engine
  • Low-latency drivers for Windows and Macintosh
  • Cabling for direct digital interface to Yamaha, Apogee, Mackie, and other equipment
  • Includes two six-foot D-sub to XLR cables sets

What Does "Special Order" Mean?

A special-order product is one that we don't normally keep in stock. We order it from the manufacturer as soon as you order from us. We have great relationships with all the manufacturers we carry, so we can get your special order to you as fast as or faster than anyone else. Remember that special orders are non-returnable and non-cancelable, so make sure the item is right for you. A Sweetwater Sales Engineer can help you decide — call (800) 222-4700 for assistance!
