    Saramonic SmartRig reviews

    Saramonic SmartRig XLR Audio Adapter is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fragile electronic assembly Used to amplify my lav mic Sony ECM-44B's signal going into a Zoom H4n digital recorder. I dropped the smartrig a few feet and something started rattling inside. Opening it up, I found a surface-mounted capacitor had broken from the circuit board. I resoldered the capacitor and the preamp works. I'm not confident about it's durability or even if it's working as designed with such weak electrical solder points.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Battery problem; **Not** a good solution for pro video 3 stars because I use it professionally, and the battery is the problem. It fits loosely and forces me to futz with it like I built the dang thing in a haste. That means it has an intermittent power problem, where you have to slide the door open, wiggle the battery, and move the door back shut. (Unacceptable). Positives are that it looks amazing velcroed to my monopod and when it's got an XLR plugged into it. The TRRS cord to the phone is very nice. Good, solid, tight fit on the phone side, and the grommet going into the Saramonic is solid. The 48V phantom power saved my bacon last week, when a tech at an auditorium only had a condenser stick mic to get me some sound from the podium. Word to the wise: use this with a video recording app with an embedded audio VU meter, and the phone in airplane mode. You'll love it. If you try to Facebook Live with it, be aware of data packet noise coming back to bite you. As always, use a backup recording device for sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the hack, worked well Like most folks probably do, I bought it to hack to use with a DSLR.� I didn't open it up, I just cut the wire and soldered together the correct ones and just left them sticking out an inch or so and put shrink tubing around.� It works great to power an XLR for my Nikon D600.� Do a search, easy to find and do.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 4 The pre amp works good as i expect for my needs (dslr canon d5 mark ii). but the ability to hear the sound during recording on the monitoring jack is no posible . (bad). The top 50 % of the knob adjustment doesn't effect the amp gain . due to the price it still worth.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works with S7! Needs Outside App for Headphone Use I bought mine today, and rushed home to use it....When I turned it on, I couldn't hear anything from my headphones as I recorded stuff. The SmartRec app that the instructions said to use for real-time monitoring of the audio with headphones was not listed with the Google Play Store that I could find. Other online reviews said it was terrible. I tried Voice Recorder app and found that there was too much lag time while recording from the microphone. But then I tried RecForge II, the time delay is negligible! So I opted for the pro version. For reference, I tested this SmartRig with an ElectroVoice RE50/B microphone and a Shure SM58 microphone - with a Samsung S7 phone. My goal was to use a handheld mic WITH a mic flag so viewers of my videos can see my channel logo when I conduct interviews. LOL. For things that don't require seeing my logo on a mic flag, I just use a single or a double Polsen lavalier mic with my cell phone. And they work really well, BTW. Hope that helps.
