The BeachTek DXA-CONNECT is an active XLR adapter in a very unique chassis that serves as an accessory bracket for mounting multiple devices to your DSLR camera or camcorder. The adapter has a high powered, two channel low noise preamp with phantom power for use with virtually any professional mic or wireless system. Record exceptionally clean audio directly to a DSLR camera or camcorder which will always be in sync with the video. For even higher quality audio, you can record directly to a portable field recorder.
Powerful low-noise preamplifiers with three gain settings provide a strong, clear signal to the camera. This allows you to dramatically reduce the camera gain which effectively replaces the relatively noisy camera preamplifiers with the much cleaner preamplifiers in the adapter for hiss free audio. This is the key to dramatically increasing the signal-to-noise ratio while still being able to record audio directly to the camera. This eliminates having to use a separate digital audio recorder to capture quality audio.
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. The DXA-CONNECT provides a neat, efficient way of mounting all your gear to your camera.
