      My one gripe about this guy is that the cord which attaches the mixer to the adapter-thinger is too darn short.

      In situations where my MixPre-D is not swinging from my neck it lives atop one of my tripods via the handy tripod mount SoundDevices provided. In such situations, because of the shortness of the cord, that heavy adapter unit hangs awkwardly down from the MixPre instead of resting comfortably on the floor. It is a setup which seems to me to put too much stress on the four-pin connector.

      Small gripe, yes. Unreasonable? Maybe. But the tripod mount is included and all of the camera manufacturers seem to have figured it out.
      In any event it is a problem easily fixed with good old Yankee ingenuity and a little gaffer's tape.

      Needs more reinforcement at neck of plug

            I ordered this replacement charger for my Sound Devices Pix240. The previous charger had gotten some wear around the neck of the cable that plugs into the recorder, so I advise people to always unplug the device from the power supply after using, to prevent unnecessary strain to the cable.

              I use this for powering both my SoundDevices Mix Pre-D, and the 633 mixer. There is a guide on the sleeve of the connector that keeps the pins in line when connecting to the mixer - a good thing loking at how delicate the pins on these connections are. Plenty of cord length with a power light indicator. A bit pricey.

                    Well made, but it's basically the same type of Ac/Dc converter as arrives with any 3.5 inch external hard drive, which costs the same or less, and comes with a free external drive. Way over-priced for what it is.

                      Brings power to my mix-pre d! Sometimes it's great not to have to change batteries, for instance when I use it for long VO sessions.

                              I use this with my sound devices 302 unit. Works great. Power supply is perfect. The design and cord length is a little off though - seems a little old fashioned. Works great otherwise.

                                  I got this to replace the original power supply for a Sound Devices recorder. The original was a small wall wart and the Hirose connector developed a short. Sound Devices doesn't use those anymore, and the newer XL-WPH3 unit is much beefier. Although it's relatively expensive for a power supply/AC adapter/charger, it's worth it for the reliability.

                                          My one gripe about this guy is that the cord which attaches the mixer to the adapter-thinger is too darn short.

                                          In situations where my MixPre-D is not swinging from my neck it lives atop one of my tripods via the handy tripod mount SoundDevices provided. In such situations, because of the shortness of the cord, that heavy adapter unit hangs awkwardly down from the MixPre instead of resting comfortably on the floor. It is a setup which seems to me to put too much stress on the four-pin connector.

                                          Small gripe, yes. Unreasonable? Maybe. But the tripod mount is included and all of the camera manufacturers seem to have figured it out.
                                          In any event it is a problem easily fixed with good old Yankee ingenuity and a little gaffer's tape.

                                                Rented my 722 out and it came back without the power supply, the guy bought me a new obne which was an upgrade as the new power supply supports the 788 as well.

                                                    I have the sound device mixers 552 and 302. This is a no brainer for me anytime I have a power connection. I have to to record live events and sometimes don't have the luxury of being able switch batteries. The stress of going to the limits a the AA batts especially when I have to supply phantom power to several mics. It is also saves me on the battery cost and availability. I like the locking hirose connector. I also like that it fits all the SD mixers.
