Hi
I have a setup with a L2B PCI with LSlot connection to Aurora8. My current PC (Win10 Pro, ASUS P8Z68 mobo) is ageing and needs replacement. 

I have two options, either build a new pc with legacy PCI expansion port or install a LT-USB in my Aurora.

For option 1, are there any recommended mother boards?

For option 2 (where I would loose 6 AO), will I still be using Lynx Mixer? If not, will the LT-USB user interface give the same flexibility as the Lynx Mixer? And is there any concerns about installing LT-USB on an A8 from 2010?

Thanks for any advice!

Option 1: the newer Asus boards that support PCI would be good choices. The P8Z77 has been a good performer for PCI, the Z97 chipset boards as well. 

Option 2: With USB you will not be using the Lynx Mixer, you would be using the Aurora Remote control software which is quite a bit more limited in capability than the Lynx mixer.    You can check out the section on the Aurora Remote in the LT-USB manual for details. No problem installing an LT-USB in an Aurora of that vintage, as long as you have firmware rev 23 or above.

Good point about the Remote control vs the mixer. I really want to keep using the mixer.

The motherboards you listed are quite old, aren't they? To be more up to date and make it possible to upgrade to newer processors, could a third option be to use a AES16e (and be limited to 8ch, of course. I would need to sell my L2B)? I would expect PCIe expansion slots to be around for a while still, while legacy PCI slots seem to become less common. 

EDIT: And I would be able to use the new mixer version, wouldn't I? Smile

Yes, must easier to find PCIe support, and with an AES16e you can use the new Lynx mixer.

Thanks for your inputs. I will consider AES16e in my next rig, I think.
