STOART, 01.02.2019
I use Aurora n in my home recording studio.

I've been looking for a good transducer for a long time and it was not easy to make a decision. Unfortunately, despite very thorough research, I ordered the "wrong one" for me, namely Metric Halo 3d. The processing of MH was not acceptable to me. Plastic sockets front incl. Rear monitors. The unaffected Led`s shine lightly anyway. The rotary potentiometers (also front input jacks) are not exactly placed according to the holes. When I wanted to rack mount ears I had to fix that with three screws (out of six all together) thread was broken! Everything installed device connected to Mac Pro 5.1 (USB3 upgraded), very loud crackers (noise) when turning the volume of monitors in the program. Maybe because of my Mac Pro with USB3 PCI card. The sound was very good. But the processing at such a price does not work for me. And I have read so much good about it! Sorry that you had to read this, (since I sent MH back I can not rate it) but that had to go out. Thankfully, there is a 30-day back guarantee and Thomann has realized that very well. Thanks to Thomann for that!

I was looking for the converters that may not have that many features, but they are good enough. Actually I wanted to handle multifunctional all in one devices, because I would rather pay for a high quality component than for 100 things of which I use only two actively. Thus, despite the "large selection" I came only on a few devices, strictly speaking on three Prism sound, Mutec and Lynx. The first was too expensive so only the two remain. And that was hard. But I chose Aurora:
-width extension possibility
-microSD card for recording (with LM-PRE4 creates Aurora 4 microphones completely alone record and play)
-new "old" converters
- Headphone outputs of high quality
-Display (if you take Aurora to record makes it very easy to use)

These are advantages for me against Mutec, whereby Mutec has its advantages of course (especially the price).
From the sound I would say almost nothing to the devices. All are excellent (I had not heard Mutec with my own monitors). Personally, I have heard differences but for me these were irrelevant. Transparency is very good for everyone.

The device is very well made. Everything from metal. I also had Aurora retrofitted and had a LM PRE4 installed (fast and nice service from Digital Broadcast
Systems). The offers a lot, is good from the sound but can not keep up with class A chenelstrip. But you have to do without USB variant then 192 kHz ("only" 96 kHz) with 12 channels. But you can switch back to 8 channels at 192kHz in Aurora. Who for the first time on such converter converts (like me) must still buy a little more (monitor controller, Kabelpatchen). N Control Mixer (software) is also available on original manufacturer page. This works fine, but I have not found any features that I can not get on the device.

I've chosen everything about Aurora (N). Nothing better yet.
For people who have their own Chenelstrips and need more than 4 channels converters that do not have their own built-in Vorversterker in signal chain, Aurora n becomes very interesting.
