Outfitted with all of the awesome I/O options you need

The Aurora 16 provides you with professional I/O options to fit your studio or live-sound production rig. Based on handy DB-25 connections, the Aurora 16's analog I/O is electronically balanced and supports both +4dBU and -10dBV nominal levels. Its AES digital I/O is also transformer coupled and capable of driving 500 feet of cable at 192kHz. What's more, the Aurora 16 supports both dual and single-wire AES channel modes.

Fully equipped with convenient front-panel controls

Lynx designed the Aurora 16's ergonomic front panel to provide you with easy access to all of its important controls and signal status. The Aurora 16 also offers extensive remote control capability. You can control all of its front panel features as well as other low-level options from a Lynx AES16 digital interface card; infrared remote; MIDI; or your computer.

Onboard 32-channel mixer makes complex routing simple

The Aurora 16's 32-channel onboard digital mixer provides you with extensive routing and mixing options. Acting as a powerful patch-bay-style digital router, your Aurora 16 can easily route signals between its analog and digital inputs on a channel-by-channel basis. That provides you with extremely flexible, and totally recallable, zero-latency monitoring capabilities.

Armed with SynchroLock jitter reduction for clear digital audio

Rock Solid Nuetral Conversion

Been using my Aurora 16 for about two years via thunderbolt to my Macbook and it's been working flawlessly. You need to download the Lynx mixer for it to sync. Routing is easy, pairs great with my Dangerous D Box monitoring utilizing the digital outs. I've heard better converters, - have done a side by side with Burl Bomber and Burl was better, Aurora in side by side is as good or better than the Apogee Rosetta - a little less smooth in the highs than apogee, very flat and honest - but the Aurora is good - even and uncolored. Stereo depth, width and detail are great. They definitely don't have a color or any kind of warming. Reliability is great, never had any issues with it in daily use - sometimes long days in a room that gets warm from gear and people. Half a star off because this thing is like a furnace in your rack - needs a blank rack space above and below. The relatively small gap between these converters and what you get for $2000-$3000 more is not worth it in my opinion when you think about what you can do with that extra money in your budget. Thunderbolt easily handles the I/O workload and having 16 channels really helps with workflow.
