16-channel AES/EUB digital I/O with 8-channel onboard sample rate conversion and 2 XLR cable sets.

The Lynx AES16-SRC offers excellent AES/EBU channel capacity and routing flexibility in a single PCI card. The AES16-SRC also gives you 8 channels of onboard sample rate conversion. With support for up to 16 channels of input and output at sample rates up to 192kHz, the Lynx AES16 turns your computer into a powerful digital router or patchbay with extensive flexibility and minimal cabling. Most importantly, the AES16-SRC supports the emerging single-wire 192kHz standard and is compatible with existing dual-wire AES/EBU devices. Install up to 4 Lynx AES16-SRC cards in a single computer.

Lynx includes 2 CBL-AES1604 cables with the AES16-SRC. The 6' cables feature 110-Ohm shielded twisted cabling. Each has 26-pin, high-density male D-sub to 4 female XLR (AES inputs), 4 male XLR's (AES outputs), and 2 female BNC's (word clock I/O).
