Transparency Matters: In the world of audio, signal purity is paramount. Lynx's commitment to transparency ensures that their converters add no coloration or distortion to your audio. This dedication to sonic clarity has earned Lynx converters a place in the most demanding audio applications and world-renowned recording facilities.

Discrete Converter Array: Lynx takes a unique approach to their analog signal path by designing each channel as a self-contained and shielded circuit. This approach eliminates crosstalk and distortion, enhancing dynamic range and overall performance.

Hilo Converter Technology (HCT): The Aurora(n) benefits from the expertise developed during the creation of the Hilo, delivering superior specifications and transparency over previous models.

Future-Proof Design: The Aurora(n) offers flexibility to expand and adapt to your evolving needs. You can add more channels, modules, connection methods, and even new functionality through firmware updates.

SynchroLock 2™: Lynx introduces SynchroLock 2™ technology, providing remarkable jitter reduction, a quick 5-second lock time, and unparalleled accuracy. The word clock I/O offers one input and three outputs on BNC connectors.

LSlot Connectivity Options: With LSlot, you have the freedom to choose your preferred connection method. Lynx ensures you're prepared for current and future standards.

Dolby Atmos: Lynx Aurora(n) is now fully compatible with Dolby Atmos. This fantastic feature is readily available for all registered Aurora(n) users on our Lynx website, ensuring you can enjoy the latest advancements in audio technology.

With Dolby Atmos compatibility, you'll gain access to a range of new features that include support for speaker configurations up to 9.1.6, a total of 530 room correction filters, and the ability to use up to 16 filters per channel, including parametric, low-pass, high-pass, and shelving options. Additionally, you'll benefit from channel level and delay compensation, along with comprehensive bass management complete with an LFE channel – all implemented in hardware with exceptional 64-bit floating-point accuracy.

But that's not all! We've also ensured seamless integration with popular sound calibration software like Sonarworks and Room EQ Wizard (REW), making room acoustic measurement, loudspeaker measurement, and audio device measurement a breeze. This integration allows for direct import of speaker calibration parameters into your Lynx Aurora(n) without the need for manual data entry.

Furthermore, you can effortlessly control Dolby Atmos through Lynx's own NControl software, providing you with a user-friendly and comprehensive experience.
