My 'dumbness' comment directed toward Apple has to do with having no transition period.  Many audio compaines are looking at this as a very dumb move from Apple (I was just reading a similar thread from RME).

When the industry transitioned from ISA to PCI, there was a few years that compaines made motherboards with both PCI and ISA slots, then the ISA slots slowly disappeared.  That gave people time to transition all the hardware without the pain and suffering this thread has caused .

Of course all we have to do is wait for Apple to transition again in 9 months to Intel, and all the current G5s they just announced will be worthless.
Thank you,

So David, can we take it as a matter of common sense that the current line of LynxAudio equipment will remain unchanged for at least the next 9 months?

They will still be using PCI-e   

the adverage life of a computer is MAX 3 years, then it worth less.

keep up with the times, and get your interfaces up to date ASAP is the game.

Also a mixed mobo with PCIX and PCI and PCI-e would be a nightmare !

yea the next interface I buy is going to be PCI-e.... so who ever gets it right
first is the one ill buy.... thats all. Im really not looking to cause trouble.

Ive just been very interested in the AES16 for a few months now and planned
on getting it this winter. just a little disapointed in your comments david.
they dont seem to positive. Hopefully by winter you guys may have a PCI-e
product out. I mean how long did you think it would take for this transition
to happen ?

I know you guys will come through with a PCIe card... it's only a matter of time. However, what would be really nice is if you offered some sort of cross-grade path.  But that might be asking a bit too much...

Either way, I'm holding out for your PCIe cards.  I plan to get a G5 quad before they phase out the IBM chips.  The last thing I need/want is to upgrade my hardware AND all of my software.  I can see it now.... there will probably be a good 6 months where not everything for the Intel platform is ready and available from each product/vendor.  And don't count on free upgrades either; even if they are cheap - like $30/upgrade - it adds up!!  A quad ought to last me at least 3+ years and keep me from having to upgrade EVERYTHING.  Just my 2 cents.

Keep up the good work guys!!!

Fred

And if this is not an attitude that is holding back the industry...

then I don't know what is.


You people sure do like to spend unnecessarily large amounts of money.

Hypothetically speaking should Lynx release a PCI Express version would
there be a trade-in/upgrade path for existing PCI users?

I just realized this same question was asked just two above me :P

This is what's scarry.  By the time you get a stable system up and running it's obsolete!  The industry moves too fast and it seems as if to get you to spend more money.  I'm holding on to my glorified G4 and my PCI AES16 cards.  In a few years after the Wentium debacle Apple will announce a partnership with AMD  PCI-lightening will then be announced....

audio card?!!! HELLO!! As if they are goig to announce the secret to war and
peace!! Come on guys, stop being silly and tell us when these cards are due.

Hey, lynx competitors, Lynx are going to make a pci-e audio card!

Well you guys are great and I love my Lynx Two A card with Nuendo and Paul even got me going using the card as AD/DA with my Digi 002 which was excellent. Your Tech Support is unparalleled...

I couldn't resist, took the plunge and bought a Mac Pro and what can I say this box rocks in a large way & with Boot Camp. I have PTLE/002 on the Mac side & Nuendo/PTLE on the XP side but alas it's PCIe. I'd buy a Lynx PCIe card in a heartbeat if there was one...I'm just sayin.

Sorry folks, no announcements at this time.
For the record, we don't make hints about new products until we're far enough along to make a public announcement. We realize that can be hard to deal with when you're looking at new computer purchases and compatibility is an issue. However, we have reasons (based on experience) for this policy.
