Pure and Simple - Passive Audio Adapter for your DSLR Camera
The Beachtek DXA-SLR PURE is a two-channel, passive audio adapter for connecting amplified signals from a wireless mic or a mixing board to any DSLR camera that has a built-in mic jack. It can also be used with any camcorder or other audio recording device that has a mic jack. Passive circuitry is ideal for these applications as no additional amplification is required for pure, clean audio. This allows you to record high quality audio directly to the camera which will always be in sync with the video.
Super Clean - Passive circuitry for noise free operation
The DXA-SLR PURE uses exceptionally low noise, wide bandwidth, balancing transformers. Passive circuitry does not add any additional electronics to the signal chain for unadulterated audio. The adapter is also virtually unclipable and offers an extremely wide dynamic range. Another benefit is that no power is needed to pass the audio signal.
Your Interface to Connectivity - Easily attach professional mixers and wireless mics to your camera.
Connecting external devices has never been easier. Features two Neutrik combo XLR connectors with integrated 1/4 phone jacks for connecting either balanced or unbalanced inputs. The DXA-SLR PURE is the ideal interface for getting amplified sources from mixers or sound boards as well as most wireless mics where no additional amplification is required.
All the Features You Need - All the features you need for connecting, controlling and monitoring the audio
Combo XLR / 14" inputs provide maximum flexibility for connecting audio sources. The inputs are transformer balanced for isolation and enhanced circuit protection. Built-in VU meters makes it easy to verify the proper input levels at a glance, while the level controls allow you to adjust the output signal for optimum recording. Each channel can easily be independently adjusted - even while recording. The phone jack lets you monitor the audio from the adapter during recording. You can also loop the output audio from your camera back into the adapter to monitor confidence sound.
Super Easy to Set Up and Use -Nothing could be easier to use or provide better performance
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. Everything about the adapter was designed to be extremely easy to use, from the ergonomic all metal chassis with nice rubber grips, to the bright easy to read VU meter and drift free level controls.
Rugged Chassis - Engineered inside and out for the highest level of performance and reliability
Neutrik brand XLR connectors, recessed switches, rugged passive circuitry and isolating transformers make this super reliable and dependable. All wrapped up in a sturdy die cast aluminum chassis with nice rubber grips for easy hand holding. The adapter mounts neatly to the bottom of the camera and can also be mounted to any standard tripod.
Add Accessories to Your Camera - Turn your camera into a truly professional looking rig
The DXA-SLR PURE is designed to allow you to mount the optional BRM-1 rod support system to the bottom of the adapter to easily attach a matte box, follow focus, top handle and other gear for incredible versatility. The BRM-1 includes two 3 rods that are threaded on both ends. Extra rods can be simply threaded on to extend to any length needed.
