Hello. I would like to connect the MX185 to my ...

Hello. I would like to connect the MX185 to my DSLR (Canon t7i) mini jack and need phantom power for it to work. Can I use something like the IK Multimedia iRig Pre? WL185 to RK100PK preamp to iRig Pre to DSLR (with TRRS to TRS adapter). Are there better options to get phantom power and connect to the DSLR? Many thanks.
Asked by: Arthur
The iRig Pre can work if used with a TRRS to TRS adapter like the Rode SC3 (B&H # ROSC3), but there are other camera-mountable systems like the Beachtek DXA-MICRO-PRO Active XLR Compact Adapter (B&H # BEDXAMICROP), Comica Audio CVM-AX3 Dual-Channel Audio Mixer for DSLRs (B&H # COCVMAX3), or Saramonic SR-PAX1 Two-Channel Audio Mixer, Preamp, Microphone Adapter (B&H # SASRPAX1) which are specifically for use with cameras. Please feel free to contact us if you would like further assistance.

question

What is the pre amp code number from Shure ?
Asked by: Anonymous
If I understand the question correctly, the part # for the pre amp for the MX185 is the RK100PK.https://<a href= http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/469581-REG/Shure_RK100PK_RK100PK_RFI_Resistant.html target= _blank >www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/469581-REG/Shure_RK100PK_RK100PK_RFI_Resistant.html</a>
