Cable Techniques CT-MX-PS Overview

  • 1Description

The Cable Techniques MX-POWERSLED is designed for use with the Sound Devices MixPre-3 and MixPre-6 field recorders. It sports a Hirose 4-pin connector that attaches to the devices, supplying 7.2V to the recorder once it is connected, and accepting a DC input range of 9 to 24V from compatible, rechargeable batteries such as Li-ion NP-1 or smart batteries. As such, this device obviates the need for AA batteries and battery sleds, as well as the need for USB power. The former can often cost more money in the long run, while the latter doesn’t necessarily provide a secure enough connection for moving about in the field— obviously, no one wants to lose power in the middle of a shoot. Lightweight at 3.2 oz, the MX-POWERSLED can integrate into DC distribution systems, and can complement a bag rig replete with recorders, wireless receivers, and more, all powered by a single host.

    Cable Techniques CT-MX-PS Reviews

    MX-POWERSLED for Sound Devices MixPre-3 And MixPre-6 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome power alternative Sled is very well constructed and provides a nice alternative to powering your MixPre-6/3 while freeing up the USB-C port for streaming.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice option, the only decent all day option. Snaps in really securely and is solidly all metal, though you have to be careful when inserting. I also have the 8 battery sled and the Sony sled but even those don't match the run time of this with a v-mount battery. You can also use this with an NP1 cup. The Sony sled holds batteries in awkward positions. The only downside of this unit is that you have to use this and the battery with a decent size bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just want Ive been waiting for. Upgraded my sound kit with the new MixPre-6 but didnt want to power via, USB-C, AA or L-Mount.  This allows me to use my existing NP-1 distribution system. Its a tight fit and can be hard to unmount and swap SD cards.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Missing feature of the Sound Devices MixPre-6 I updated my audio bag to include an SD MixPre-6 but wasn't thrilled with the powering options. ?But when I found this, I pressed order! ?And I'm glad I did. ?It works nicely with?Remote Audio?BDSv4U.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for the most part I use this so I can use the same power options I have for my SD 552 and SD 302. Connection works great, makes MP6 just like the other SD Equipment. I find the latch on this unit doesnt hold though, pops out easily. For me its not a big deal, I put some tape on there as a backup, its always going to be securely crammed in a mixer bag anyways. But if youre using this to record on rollercoasters it might be something to take account of.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and secure I was tired of carrying, swapping, and charging AAs for my MixPre-6 and forked out the money for this. As mentioned, it is a very secure connection that has me using the USB-C cable to get the files. I had been using it only when stationary, but recently bought a Sachtler small audio bag to carry my vmount battery, whose power will last longer than my shoulders.  As trustworthy as their cables.
