The LynxTWO family of PCI cards were Lynx’s first 192 kHz audio products. Introduced in 2000, these three versatile cards offered 192 kHz analog audio and 96 kHz digital audio with world-class converters and time code synchronization on board. With performance that exceeds many stand-alone converters, LynxTWO has set the standard for 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-A model, with four analog inputs and outputs, is intended for general usage. LynxTWO-B (discontinued), with two analog inputs and six analog outputs, is an excellent choice for playback of 5.1 audio or any application where six outputs are necessary, often precluding the need for a second or third card. With its six analog inputs and two analog outputs, the LynxTWO-C (discontinued) is an excellent choice for remote recording systems.

LynxTWO’s powerful 16-channel mixer allows extensive routing, control and metering with excellent visual reference. With the latest software, you can mix up to four inputs to any of 16 outputs. In addition to the inputs and outputs on the LynxTWO, the mixer incorporates program material from the optional LS-ADAT daughter card or from Aurora converters.

With a design very similar to that of Lynx’s highly acclaimed Aurora converters, LynxTWO delivers near Aurora-quality specs and performance in the compact PCI card format. In fact, using the optional LynxTWO/Aurora Interface Kit, your LynxTWO can act as the computer interface and front end for the Aurora converter.

If you want the same audio quality of the LynxTWO, but only need two channels and do not need SMTPE capabilities, check out the L22.
