The BeachTek DXA-2s is a two channel, transformer balanced XLR adapter for today’s small, compact camcorders. This adapter is designed to easily attach balanced or unbalanced type microphones to any camcorder with a MIC jack. The DXA-2s gives you all the benefits of using balanced audio devices for clean audio as well as control over the signal levels to ensure the best possible sound recording.
The Beachtek DXA2S is very easy to set up and use. Its rugged construction ensures years of use and its compact size fits neatly under any camcorder - can also be mounted to any standard tripod. Since the adapter is a passive device, it is completely silent and the premium transformers ensure superb audio.
The Beachtek DXA2S Compact Adapter allows you to attach two balanced XLR audio devices to your camcorder. Each input signal is sent to a MIC/LINE switch to allow you to set the proper level, then to an audio control to adjust attenuation. The balanced input signal is then converted to an unbalanced output through an impedance matching transformer. Finally, the output signal is sent through an attached shielded cable terminating in a stereo mini-plug that connects to your camcorder’s microphone jack.
The auxiliary input allows you to attach wireless microphones that use standard mini-plug connectors. This signal is sent to the right channel.
A switch lets you select between stereo or mono operation. For stereo operation, the adapter sends the left input signal to the left channel and the right input to the right channel. The two channels are never mixed allowing you to access both channels during editing for maximum versatility. For mono operation, both channels are mixed together - ideal when using only one audio source to give you two channel recording.
