Our most popular adapter is now even better!

We took our popular DXA-MICRO PRO and added even more of the features you asked for.
Upgrade to Pro Audio
Easily connect wireless systems, camera mounted mics as well as professional handheld and boom microphones
Go pro with all the features you need including a built-in XLR connector with 48 volt phantom power for connecting any pro mic. In addition, there are two 3.5 mm mono and one 3.5 mm stereo mini-jacks with plug-in power for connecting any camera mounted mic such as the popular Rode VideoMics. You can also easily connect a wireless to either the XLR or mini-jack inputs. Connect two audio sources at a time for two-channel recording. Each channel can easily be independently adjusted for the optimum recording level. The DXA-MICRO PRO+ gives you the ability to connect whatever microphones work best for your situation.
Want to connect a sound mixer No problem! Simply use a readily available barrel attenuator like this one from Shure between the mixer and XLR input of the adapter. For a two channel feed from a mixer, you can use an attenuating "Y" cable like this one from Sescom between the mixer and STEREO input on the DXA-MICRO PRO+.
Use With a Smartphone
Connect pro gear for pro sound
With the optional RODE SC7 smartphone cable, you can easily connect a professional XLR microphone for superb audio. Ideal for use with interview mics for one channel audio.
You can also record two-channel audio onto an iPhone with the optional RODE SC6-L digital adapter and Beachtek BT-SC6 cable. This allows you to use the bracketing feature to record audio to both channels at different levels so you have a backup track in case the primary one gets one blown out. You can also add a second mic or wireless with a TRS connector to the second channel.
Powerful preamplifiers for hiss free audio
Powerful low-noise preamplifiers with dual gain settings provide a strong, clear signal to the camera. This allows you to reduce the camera gain which dramatically reduces the hiss. You can now use the very clean preamplifiers in the adapter to effectively replace the preamplifiers in the camera. This is the key to dramatically increasing the signal-to-noise ratio for in camera recording. You now get comparable or better results than using a separate digital audio recorder to capture quality audio.
Setup a second channel for backup
A very useful feature allows you to use audio bracketing when using a single mono microphone to have a backup channel that is recorded at a lower level. This gives you a safety track in case the primary channel gets distorted from an overly hot input.
Removeable Cheese Plate
Modular design for lots of versatility
The removable Cheese Plate has a built-in shoe slot plus several threaded ¼" and 3/8" mounting holes to easily add accessories to the top of your camera. Each side of the chassis also has additional built-in sturdy mounting shoes which is ideal for mounting wireless microphones. The brass mounting foot allows the unit to attach to the camera shoe so it is up and out of the way of the camera battery drawer. Our optional V-CLIK makes it even easier to quickly and securely click-on and click-off anything from lights, microphones, monitors and more.
Transform Your Camera
Add accessories for a cinematic look
Give your camera that cinematic look and feel with the optional BRM-2 Baseplate Accessory to easily add a matte box, follow focus or other rod mounted devices to transform your camera into a truly impressive performing and looking rig. Simply mounts to the bottom of the adapter. Find out more on our BRM-2 Baseplate Accessory page.
Impressive Run Times
Up to ten hours of operation per charge
No more having to waste money on buying replacement batteries. Built-in high capacity LiPo battery for up to ten hours of operation when phantom power is not being used. Check battery level at a glance with Green/Yellow/Red status indicator. You can also power the device externally via the Micro USB port from any commonly available USB battery for unlimited run times.
Reliability you can count on
Tough, extruded aluminum chassis is virtually destructible with rock solid electronics you can rely on. Not even a two-ton truck rolling over it will damage it. Works under pressure - just like you do!
