Lynx Studio Technology has announced the debut of the new LM-A24 and LM-A4 analog modules for its Aurora(n) audio interface and converter, both providing additional I/O capability and designed to simplify level matching with other studio devices, with output levels that can be adjusted in 0.5 dB increments. They will be available at Lynx dealers later this year.
Lynx co-owner and chief hardware engineer Bob Bauman states, “We’re excited about these two new additions to our family of Aurora(n) modules. This module is unique in that it provides I/O levels up to +24 dBu to simplify level matching with other studio devices and the output levels can be adjusted in 0.5 dB increments. These adjustments occur in the analog domain to maintain an excellent signal-to-noise ratio. Like our other modules we are pleased to offer this additional functionality to our customers via a simple module installation as opposed to buying a whole new converter.”
Co-owner and chief software engineer David Hoatson adds, “I think it is the best ‘upgrade’ module we have done so far. Rather than being on the original list of modules, these modules were born from our customers’ input. Some customers need only a couple of inputs but need dedicated monitor outputs. The LM-A24 is a perfect bridge between our Hilo converter and our ‘standard’ Aurora(n) that starts with eight ins and outs and goes up from there. Also, many customers are using all their line outs from the Aurora(n) to feed a summing mixer and just need two or four more outs for monitoring. We are thrilled to be able to give our customers what they have been asking for.”
The LM-A24 is a 2-in/4-out analog module, with cabling via TRS connectors. It uses Lynx’s 24-bit A/D and D/A conversion that’s designed to deliver transparent audio quality. Suggested retail price is $750.
The LM-A4 is an output-only analog module that utilizes four TRS connectors, with the same 24-bit D/A conversion as the LM-A24. Suggested retail price is $575.
