The Lynx AES16e-SRC PCI Express Card builds on the capabilities of Lynx's popular AES16 with updated features and the benefits of the PCI Express interface. The architecture and higher bandwidth of PCI Express reduces bottlenecks and overhead, which provides higher performance for computer-based, high-end audio operations.

The AES16e-SRC PCI Express card offers 16 channels of 24-bit AES/EBU digital audio at a 192kHz sample rate in both single-wire and dual-wire AES modes. Designed to integrate digital consoles, multichannel A/D and D/A converters, hard disk recorders, digital audio workstations, and other digital audio equipment, the AES16e-SRC is compatible with both Windows and Macintosh operating systems. The Lynx AES16e-SRC PCI Express Card also provides you with 16 channels of sample rate conversion (cable sold separately).

  • x1 PCI Express interface works with Macintosh or Windows PCs with PCI Express slots (x1 - x16)
  • 8 stereo inputs and 8 stereo outputs (16 mono I/O), AES/EBU format, 24-bit, single wire and dual wire, transformer coupled
  • 16 channel sample rate conversion
  • Extensive onboard digital mixer
  • All relevant settings, such as sample rate selection, sync source selection, channel routing, and buffer size are enabled, controlled, and monitored from the host computer
  • Multichannel support of 5.1 and 7.1 surround playback formats
  • Includes Lynx-exclusive SynchroLock sample clock generator for 3000:1 jitter rejection on external clock sources
  • Supports ASIO and WDM for Windows and CoreAudio for Mac OS X
  • General:
    PCI Express Bus: Version 2.0 compliant
    Data Transfers: Bi-directional up to 250 Mbps, custom 32-channel, zero-wait
    state, scatter-gather DMA engine, bus mastering supported
    Dimensions: 4.4"H X 6.6"W X 0.75"D (standard half-size PCI Express card)

    System Requirements
    Windows-compatible computer with PCI Express support
    One empty PCI Express slot (x1 โ€ x16)
    Video display with 1024 x 768 minimum resolution
    Windows XP (32 or 64-bit) or Windows Vista (32 or 64-bit)
    NOTE: The AES16e is not supported under Windows 2000, 95, 98 or ME.

    Apple Macintosh G5 or later (compatible with Intel-based Macs)
    One empty PCI Express slot (x1 โ€ x16)
    Video display with 1024 x 768 minimum resolution
    Macintosh OS X (10.4 or higher)

    Digital I/O:
    Number/Type: Eight inputs and eight outputs, 24-bit AES/EBU format, transformer coupled
    Channels: 16 in/out in single-wire mode, 8 in/out in dual-wire mode
    Sample rates: All standard rates and variable rates up to 192 kHz in both single wire and dual-wire modes
    Sample Rate conversion: 16 channels available with support for conversion ratios up to 16:1. Dynamic range: 144dB.

    Core: FPGA-based core contains custom PCI Express interface, data routing and formatting, device/stream control, digital mixing, clock routing, and control, and DMA engine. Support for field upgrades of firmware.
    Audio Devices: Card is visible to host applications as 8 record devices and 8 play devices. Each device has two channels and can be used independently for multi-client functionality.

    Sources: Digital inputs 1โ€4, internal word-clock on header, on-board low-jitter crystal oscillator
    SynchroLock: Multi-stage, VCXO-based clock generation system with 3000:1 jitter attenuation. Wide mode tracks off-frequency clocks, narrow mode generates ultra-low jitter output for standard frequencies.

    Onboard Digital Mixer:
    Type: Hardware-based, low-latency
    Routing: Ability to route any input to any or multiple outputs
    Mixing: Up to 22 input or playback channels mixed to any output, 40-bit precision
    Status: Peak levels to -114 dB on all inputs and outputs
