Overview

The LynxTWO-C PCI Card offers 6 analog inputs and 2 outputs and is ideal for remote recording systems. 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, the 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 four inputs to any of 16 outputs. With a design very similar to that of Lynx's highly acclaimed Aurora converters, the LynxTWO-C delivers near Aurora-quality specs and performance in a compact PCI card.

The LynxTWO-C PCI Card comes with audio and sync breakout cables, S/PDIF adapter cables, and a CD-ROM with the manual, drivers, and sample software.
