Considering a Lynx Aurora (n) anyone use one?

So I'm in the market for a new interface/converter and have basically narrowed it down to either the Lynx Aurora (n) 8 channel or the UA Apollo x 8 or the new Steinberg AXR4 T .

I love the ergonomics and workflow of the Apollo and the Steinberg but I'm leaning toward the Lynx for its sound quality and its modular architecture. I don't really need much in the way of mic pres as I rely mostly on external pres, but a couple more wouldn't hurt. My main priorities are very high quality conversion, extremely low latency, and solid driver stability.

Anyone have experience with these devices (especially the Lynx Aurora (n) ) ?


Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your reply. How are the drivers in terms of stability and latency?

Aurora Ns are really quite good. We upgraded to 48 I/Os on Thunderbolt + 16 AES I/Os with only 2 units. Very smart intergration. As far as sound, top notch. Great separation and very true capture and reproduction. Impressed to say the least.
One added feature for us is Lynx adopted the pcie format on Thunderbolt so it works like they are on cards meaning I have Direct Monitoring on Thunderbolt in Nuendo. Only Thunderbolt setup I am aware of that supports DM.

Here for the gear
Yes. Get the Aurora(n), it's great.

If you want or need more in/outs or change your connectivity you can just get new modules to upgrade.

The support is great, it's futureproof (see above), it sounds absolutely clear.

When you get it, be sure to leave space between it. This unit gets warm!

I just picked up the 16 channel TB. I've used Lynx for over 10 years. Lot's of top notch albums are recorded with them. If you want commercial grade sound production it's the right choice.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. I'm definitely feeling more encouraged about going with the lynx. I also just chatted with support and was told that you can now control the monitor volume and select which outputs to use with the latest firmware. The newest version of n Control also offers a lot of flexible routing options. This is encouraging as it shows that there's a lot of flexibility in the hardware configuration and firmware updates, which makes it more likely to be "future proof" - if that exists or at least as a worthy investment over a longer period of time.
