The AES digital I/O is transformer coupled and is capable of driving 500 feet of cable at 192kHz. Both dual and single-wire AES channel modes are supported.
Front Panel Controls
Aurora's ergonomically designed front panel has simple access to important controls and signal status. One-of-a-kind to this product class, Aurora also offers lots of remote control capability.

On-board 32-channel Mixer
The on-board 32-channel digital mixer sports lots of routing and mixing options. Acting as a intense patch bay style digital router, Aurora can easily route signals between analog and digital inputs on a channel-by-channel basis. Mixing capability on each output also provides flexible zero latency monitoring.
LSlot for Expansion
The LSlot expansion port works with cards that provide compatibility with current and emerging digital interface standards, including ADAT and others.
