    Hello I use the Lynx 2 card. Stunning!

  3. Cool, thanks dude, I've been looking into both the Lynx II and RME HDSP 9632, but I think I'm leaning more towards the Lynx II. Thanks again..

    RME make some excellant cards. You wont go wrong with them but the AD/DA converters on the Lynx 2 (to me and many many top magazine reviewers) believe they are a lot closer to Apogee Rossetta than most Apogee owners would like to agree. Plus the specs are better. Downsides - Not enough In or outs. I think the 4in 4out is excellant value for money!

    p.s. The drivers are rock solid. I get latencies as low as 2-3ms when recording with very little strain on the pc and the noise is just none existent.

    Have fun

    Lynx cards kick serious a$$... I have both RME and Lynx here (for my Sequoia setups) and both have been reliable workhorse cards. However, Lynx definitely gets the sonic edge in my book. Add to that the fact that I can use AES for digital work (and avoid SMUX problems at high-res) and there is a big workflow advantage as well.

    Personally, I would wait until after AES (which is next week) to make any decissions as to hardware- the biggest show for releasing pro new equipment may have something interesting come out (not that I know anything- just seems every one of these shows has something pretty amazing hit).

    I personally hope Lynx have a Firwire 8in/out card coming. Heaven.

    I think it is safe to say that a lot of us would... I love the Lynx converters- they ain't Lavry or Prism, but then again, they are also inside a computer and a fraction as expensive. I'd love to see what they'd sound like outside the box where they don't have to fight the hostile computer environment and when they have a proper power supply.

    Exactly!

    Let's hope and pray. I do think Lynx need to do this fairly quickly or be left behind though!

    I'm sure there will be plenty of "gear report" posts... I'll be working at the show so I'll probably have less time to get out than I normally would. Our booth is right next to Lynx, though, so if they have anything new, I'll know about it first thing Thursday morning... LOL

    I had good experiences with RME Multiface and Fireface.

    Both are really good and have solid drivers. And you get digicheck :lol:

    Would Nuendo 2.0 run OK with an
    Maudio Audiophile 2496 PCI?

    I'm kinda in the same position as you. I'm putting together a Nuendo rig and am still undecided on conversion/interface. But I'm definatley gonna wait for the Lynx Aurora 16 to come out before I buy anything. If it's as good as I'm hoping I'll definatley buy it.

    It's got 16 i/o of Lynx best conversion (supposed to be better than the Lynx 2). They even claim that it's mastering quality conversion. And it only cost like 3K! I think it comes out in January.

    As for now it has an AES output, but a firewire option is coming. Not until summer though :(

    BTW, theres also gonna be an Aurora 8 coming out too. The same as the Aurora 16 but with 8 i/o, obvioulsy.
