Responding to customer requests for sample rate conversion, Lynx Studio Technology has added the AES16-SRC to its line of AES16 192kHz AES/EBU interfaces. The AES16-SRC, with eight channels of sample rate conversion, has a suggested retail price of $995.
The AES16 began shipping in late 2003 and has been widely accepted as the digital standard for 24-bit/192kHz AES/EBU digital audio. Early adopters for the AES16 include name producers and engineers, mastering houses, major recording studios and major manufacturers of digital mixers and converters.
The AES16-SRC offers eight channels of mastering-quality sample rate conversion to accommodate facilities running multiple sample rates or signals not locked to “house sync.” Offering conversion ratios up to 8:1, the AES16-SRC’s sample rate converters have a dynamic range of 142 dB. The AES16-SRC also has the capability to maintain phase between multiple-rated converted inputs using its matched phase control.
All features of the AES16, including SynchroLock™ jitter reduction, intuitive software control and compatibility with Windows and Macintosh computers, are also included with the AES16-SRC. Two model CBL-AES1604 cables are also included for ease of interface using the XLR connectors for audio and BNC for word clock I/O.
