Rate & Review

The BeachTek DXA-SLR PRO HDSLR Audio Adapter is designed to enhance audio quality with virtually any HDSLR camera by providing high quality XLR inputs, AGC disabling, built-in limiting, headphone monitoring, comprehensive metering and more. Connect up to two microphones and provide 12 or 48V phantom power to professional condenser microphones.

Each channel features a gain control switch with 0 and 15dB settings, and the low-noise preamplifiers and throughput ensure pristine audio quality, wide frequency response and detail. The AGC (Automatic Gain Control) disabling feature eliminates audio level fluctuations that can ruin an otherwise good take. The unit is built tough, mounts to the base of HDSLR cameras, and its rear mounted VU meter displays level in 3 dB increments.

Note! Certain cameras, including Panasonic Lumix and Nikon cameras, require particular cables for proper functioning.

High quality Neutrik XLR inputs allow you to connect professional grade microphones
Phantom Power
12 or 48V phantom power can be sent to each channel for powering condenser microphones
Each channel features a switchable 15dB gain switch
Limiters protect against noise and distortion caused by unpredictable peaks and loud signals
AGC Disable
