Sound Devices MX-LM1 Reviews

A fancy piece of plastic, But essential.

The adapter fits perfectly on my MixPre 6. Feels solid and it's easy to remove. I love the low-profile look and functionality. But, a tear rolled down my face when I paid 200$ for this.

Low profile & Easy to Remove

I got this for my MixPre-6ii and haven't had a single issue with it. My large L Batteries (Powerextra NP-F970) haven't been stripped, and I can easily remove the entire plate off of my MixPre-6ii. From what I've been hearing, others have dealt with Sound Devices battery compartments getting stuck onto the housing, as well as batteries being damaged from the thick battery plugs. So far I have encountered none of those issues.

Prefer this over the dual battery version, had issues with the dual battery version popping off the MixPre. This one has been very solid so far.

Works well, mine is very hard to remove

This is a good solution to powering the unit, but OMG mine is a real struggle to take out. I can't understand why Sound Devices is so good in every other way but just can't get this battery stuff right. The expense, too, is nuts. A USB-C battery pack is really the way to go.

What is the difference between this one and the cheaper $65 option?
Asked by: Jared
Hi Jared. The MX-LMOUNT holds 2 NPF batteries, and the MX-LM1 only holds 1 NPF. Battery orientation is parallel to the chassis for the MX-LM1, but perpendicular for the MX-LMOUNT.

Is this battery sled made of metal? From the reviews of the earlier, double L battery mount from Sound Devices, I’d be hesitant to shell out almost three times more money for this one if it is still made of plastic.
Asked by: C + A
Thank you for asking. This device is made of plastic, but its form factor is considerably different than that of the MX-LMOUNT.
