Lynx Studio Technology announces that the Aurora TB converters with Thunderbolt connectivity are now available. The LT-TB Thunderbolt LSlot interface that may be retrofitted into any Aurora or Hilo converter is also now available. The LT-TB is a two-port Thunderbolt expansion card that supports daisy-chaining of Aurora and Hilo converters and any other certified Thunderbolt device on both Apple and Windows computers.

The Aurora 8-TB, Aurora 16-TB and Aurora 16-VTTB models are now available, as well as the LT-TB LSlot interface for use in existing Aurora and Hilo converters. The LT-TB and accompanying Aurora and Hilo models are the first Thunderbolt audio devices to be certified for Windows as well as Mac. Lynx states that later on, it will release Hilo TB models, in silver and black, along with Hilo Firmware Version 6.

Whereas some earlier Thunderbolt-equipped converters are limited to two units and 32 analog channels, the LT-TB can be used in a chain of up to six Aurora converters for up to 96 analog channels, plus 96 digital channels on one Thunderbolt port. So theoretically, the new six port Mac Pro could deliver up to 1,152 channels.

Thunderbolt delivers 10 gigabits per second speed, twice the speed of USB 3. Thunderbolt technology is the fastest connection to your PC at 10 Gbs—in each direction, and at the same time. Thunderbolt provides flexibility and simplicity by connecting to data and display devices with a single cable, up to six devices in a daisy-chain.

U.S. suggested retail prices are: LT-TB $650; Hilo-TB $2,795; Aurora 8TB $2,395; Aurora 16TB $3,395; Aurora 16 VTTB $3,695.
