Lynx

192kHz mulitchannel audio reference interface with four analog inputs and outputs, cables, and more.

The LynxTWO-A PCI Card is intended for general digital audio usage. With 4 analog inputs and outputs, the LynxTWO is a scion of the Lynx family of PCI cards—among the first Lynx 192kHz analog audio products—to offer 96kHz digital audio with onboard, world-class converters and time code synchronization. With performance that exceeds many standalone converters, LynxTWO provides signal purity, versatile synchronization, powerful hardware mixing, and extensibility to support a variety of multichannel formats including ADAT and multiple AES/EBU or SPDIF.

The LynxTWO offers powerful 16-channel mixing for extensive routing, control, and metering with excellent visual reference. Using the latest software, you can mix up to 4 inputs to any of 16 outputs. With a design very similar to that of Lynx's highly acclaimed Aurora audio converters, the LynxTWO-A delivers near Aurora-quality specs and performance in a compact PCI card.

The LynxTWO-A PCI Card comes with audio and sync breakout cables, S/PDIF adapter cables, and a CD-ROM with the manual, drivers, and sample software.
