Sonosax ultra-portable dual domain preamp

Posted on: Tuesday 24th of September 2019

The SX-M2D2 is a lightweight 2-channel high resolution dual-domain microphones preamplifier with integrated USB audio Class 2. Compact, low power-consumtion, battery powered, the SX-M2D2 embeds similar high performance dual A/D converters as the SX-R4+. This product is a great companion for various mobile set-ups. For use on camera it has two mini XLR inputs with phantom power and high quality preamps. It’s compatible with iOS and Android devices so you can use it to plug in professional microphones to your smartphone. As it also has a USB sound card built in so you can use it as an audio interface on Mac or PC, to record podcasts or VO – or just to listen to material via its headphone output. The M2D2 features three mini-XLR inputs: two analogue with phantom power and one AES input, (for microphones with a digital output), that’s switchable between AES3 and the new AES42 standard.
