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

The Aurora 8 provides you with professional I/O options to fit your studio or live-sound production rig. Based on handy DB-25 connections, the Aurora 8'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 8 supports both dual and single-wire AES channel modes.

Fully equipped with convenient front-panel controls

Lynx designed the Aurora 8's ergonomic front panel to provide you with easy access to all of its important controls and signal status. The Aurora 8 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 8'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 8 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

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.
