The LynxTWO-B PCI Card has 2 analog inputs and 6 outputs and is an excellent choice for playback of 5.1 audio or any application where 6 outputs are necessary. The LynxTWO-B can often preclude the need for a second or third audio card.
Introduced in 2000, the LynxTWO family of PCI cards were Lynx's first 192kHz analog audio products, offering 96kHz digital audio with onboard, world-class converters and time code synchronization. With performance that exceeds many standalone converters, LynxTWO models provide 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 series' powerful 16-channel mixer allows extensive routing, control, and metering with excellent visual reference. Using the latest software, you can mix up to 4 inputs to any of 16 outputs. With a design very similar to that of the highly acclaimed Lynx Aurora converters, the LynxTWO-B card delivers near Aurora-quality specs and performance in a compact PCI card.
The LynxTWO-B comes with audio and sync breakout cables, S/PDIF adapter cables, and a CD-ROM with the manual, drivers, and sample software.
