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 3.5mm microphones to a DSLR or camcorder with a 3.5mm mic input. Both 3.5mm 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. It is powered by a single 9V battery.

Hello. Just so I'm straight, this unit will provide phantom power to a shotgun mic that requires it?
Asked by: Harlan
The DXA has an XLR jack on one side that can provide 48 volts of phantom power to XLR condenser mics, shotgun or otherwise, that require it. If you’re using an XLR mic that does NOT need phantom power, then you can turn off phantom power to the jack using a slide switch on the DXA.

Asked by: David
This DOES NOT provide mic/line attenuation, so you'll either have to attenuate externally, or use a camera that has an attenuator option. Doesn't the Canon HF-G50?
