Beachtek DXA-MICRO PRO overview

  • 1Description

The DXA-MICRO-PRO from Beachtek is an active, 2-channel audio adapter. It is designed to connect one XLR mic with 48V phantom power and two 1/8" microphones to a DSLR or camcorder with a 1/8" mic input. Both 1/8" inputs feature plug-in power. This allows you to record the audio directly to the camera in sync with the picture for videographers, sound designers, and more.

With dual gain-adjustment settings, the adapter provides a stronger audio level to the camera and bypasses the noisy camera preamplifiers. Built-in good/over level indicators allow you to verify the signal levels at a glance and the trim controls let you adjust the output signal for optimum recording. A headphone jack monitors your audio from the adapter during recording or camera playback.

Finally, the DXA-MICRO-PRO will conveniently mount under the camera for a secure attachment to a tripod base or will mount on the hot shoe above the camera.

Easily Connect External Microphones
Attach a wide variety of audio gear including wireless systems, camera mounted mics as well as professional handheld and boom microphones
Ultra Performance
Powerful preamplifiers for clean audio with plenty of punch
Feature Packed
All the features you need for connecting, controlling and monitoring the audio
Easy to Set Up and Use
No menus, no syncing, and no problem. Real switches and volume knobs mean no hunting through multi-layer menus trying to find or change settings. Since the audio is recorded directly to the camera, it will always be in sync with the video which eliminates the need for syncing in post
Compact Chassis with Flexible Mounting Options
Mounts over or under your camera

    Beachtek DXA-MICRO PRO reviews

    DXA-MICRO-PRO Active XLR Compact Adapter is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Happy I was looking for a solution for using mics with 3.5 connections on a dslr. Even the best mics out there needed the camera preamps turned up far enough that there was hiss. With the addition of this, I can turn those noisy camera preamps down to one click above off and the sound is much better. Being able to set a left and right volume to create a safety track is an added bonus.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great device to improve Canon DSLR sound. I use this with my Canon EOS Rebel SL2 to improve my sound quality due to the terrible Canon Preamp. The Rode Smart Lav+ and Sennhieser AVX XLR system both sound fantastic. The biggest benifit though is that with this you can monitor sound, and hook up and H4 or H5 and make a back up recording. Just remember to use fresh 9V batteries in this because this becomes the weakest link in the chain and you don't want your sound to fail. I am thinking I might need to buy some rechargeable 9V's if I use this a lot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A MUST HAVE FOR INTERNET TV PRODUCTION I produce community network television, and the BEACHTEK DXA-MICRO-PRO Active Compact Adapter reproduces a sound quality, rivaled to none. So user friendly, and easy to mount. It won't be the last product we purchase from BEACHTEK VIA B&H Photo.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent. I bought this as a simple, and relatively inexpensive solution to better audio on my Fuji XT2 for run & gun video shots. It makes for quicker editing over external audio recorders and is easier to use as a solo operator. The light weight, simple analogue set-up and mounting options are great and I use it both under the camera on a tripod or attached to the bottom of a Zhiyun Crane Stabiliser.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! This was exactly what I was looking for but I didn't know that until after contacting customer support at both Beachtek and B&H. I was looking for a way to record two mics at once with control and this does the trick. An added bonus is that it has an XLR plug on one side which is really handy. Great sound. Well built. I love that this can mount either on top of or below my camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great, takes the guesswork out of audio for interviews Running on a 9V battery (an option for a wall wart would be nice), the Beachtek DXA-Micro-pro makes interview setups quick and easy. I'm using it with a Fujifilm X-T2 with the battery grip. That rig already gives me a mic input and a headphone output, but what I needed to shoot interviews was the option to connect a good microphone, to be placed near the subject, in addition to my on-camera shotgun mic. I had a good small condenser that requires phantom power and an XLR connection, so that's where the DXA comes in. It made it easy to rout the XLR to the right channel and the shotgun to the left, giving me ample options to get clear audio. The headphone amp is powerful and very clear, and you always have plenty of clean headroom available. I think it's a little weird that they call this an "adapter", because it's a full fledged, two channel preamp. It's solid and sturdy, not too heavy, and sits comfortable under (or on top of) your camera.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it a lot, I wish I could plug it into the wall. I didn't want the hassle of having to synch audio with my video in post, which is what you have to do if you record to a separate audio device. At the same time, I'd had some bad experiences with the camera capturing the noise of my lens focussing. This could be fixed with a longer mic cable, but there's still the issue of potentially weak audio (and long cables don't help with that problem, especially if they're not XLR). This unit fixes all those problems. I usually connect a good quality small diaphragm condenser microphone via the "R" input, which is XLR, and a shotgun video mic with the mini "L" input, positioned slightly further away from my subject. This gives me a safety track in case there are any unexpected peaks or something goes wrong with the condenser mic (like someone hitting the table etc.). Great that the Beachtek provides phantom power, btw. The setup takes a couple of minutes, but thankfully the preamp comes with a couple of short cables to make it easy. So it's: Mics in R and L, stereo output into camera mic input, cable from camera headphone output to Beachtek monitor input, headphones connected to Beachtek, make sure you see healthy levels on camera monitor. I'm also glad I can put this preamp under my camera. If I only had the hotshoe option, it would cover up many of my camera's controls. What I don't like is that a 9V battery is the only possible power source. In hourlong interviews, it would be nice to have the option of plugging in and not having to worry about battery life, which is limited with the phantom power running. The "hi" switches are not really helpful, since hiss becomes too much of an issue with them engaged. I'd rather opt for having the Beachtek and my camera's preamps sharing the duties. For single microphone operation, a pan control would be helpful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from JUST WHAT I NEEDED The DXA micro pro works great for much improved sound with my Canon 60d, seems built well, at a good price. Like it a lot.
