Next-Gen Lynx Conversion Plus Thunderbolt

This Lynx Aurora (n) 8-TB with preinstalled LT-TB option provides you with pro-quality digital conversion and ultra-low-latency performance. The Aurora (n) 8-TB gives you up to 192kHz analog to digital and digital to analog conversion with front panel control of all routing and sample rate options. Word clock connectors provide you with additional sync options, and the preinstalled LT-TB card provides you with maximum bandwidth and minimal latency. Aurora (n) models give you up to 32-channel recording and playback to microSD for stand-alone operation or confidence recording, as well as two audiophile-grade headphone outs, while a TFT LCD display provides immediate status information. Leveraging high-end Lynx Hilo technology and utilizing cutting-edge FPGA processors, Aroura (n) delivers even greater transparency, with significantly lower noise and distortion than previous models. For excellent conversion quality, Sweetwater recommends the Lynx Aurora (n) 8-TB.

Convenient front-panel control and the I/O options you need

In addition to an ergonomic front panel that provides easy access to all of its important controls and signal status,  the Aurora (n) 8-TB offers professional I/O options to fit your studio or live-sound production rig. Based on handy DB-25 connections, the Aurora's analog I/O is electronically balanced and supports both +4dBU and -10dBV nominal levels, while its preinstalled LT-TB card delivers Thunderbolt connectivity with maximum bandwidth and minimal latency.

Onboard 32-channel mixer makes complex routing simple

The Aurora (n) 8-TB'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 (n) 8-TB 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-2 jitter reduction for clear digital audio

Aurora (n) models also include Lynx's proprietary SynchroLock-2 jitter reduction technology. 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.

Preinstalled LT-TB option provides ultra-fast Thunderbolt connection

Take advantage of this Aurora (n) 8-TB's preinstalled LT-TB Thunderbolt port option and take full advantage of your computer's fastest connection. Thanks to the Aurora (n) 8-TB's LT-TB option, you get eight total analog and eight digital I/O channels and full channel counts at sample rates up to 192kHz. The user-upgradable FPGA also adds enhanced 64 x 32 mixing, and you'll experience some of the lowest latency any recording device can offer.
