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 with no electronics to get in the way. Another benefit is that no power is needed to pass the audio signal.

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 uses exceptionally low noise, wide bandwidth, balancing transformers. This allows you to record high quality audio directly to the camera which will always be in sync with the video. Direct audio recording eliminates the need to have a separate audio recording device and syncing the audio in post editing.

Built-in VU meters makes it easy to verify the proper signal levels at a glance, while the level controls allow you to adjust the output signal for optimum recording. The phone jack lets you monitor the audio from the adapter during recording, or camera during playback.

Since the gain is unity, the output level will only be a strong as the input level which is why this device is ideal for amplified signals only. It is not intended for direct connection to microphones.

The adapter mounts to the bottom of the camera and can also be mounted to any standard tripod.
