The Beachtek DXA-4 (DXA-4P) Dual XLR Input to 1/8" Stereo Mini Output 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 of the Beachtek DXA-4 Dual XLR Adapter 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.

Beachtek recommends the use of sensitive condenser type microphones for the best results. Dynamic microphones usually do not have sufficient output levels and may result in an excessive amount of hiss from the high level of amplification necessary by the camera’s audio preamps. Microphones with a sensitivity rating of greater than -40 dBV are ideal.
