Features and Benefits
Ultra Performance in a Compact Package
Powerful low-noise preamplifiers with dual gain settings provide a strong, clear signal to the camera. This allows you to dramatically reduce the camera gain which effectively replaces the relatively noisy camera preamplifiers with the much cleaner preamplifiers in the adapter for hiss free audio. This gives you outstanding audio quality that rivals the best digital audio recorders.
Connect Virtually Any Microphone
Features a built-in XLR connector with phantom power for connecting any pro mic as well as two 3.5 mm mono and one 3.5 mm stereo mini-jacks with plug-in power for connecting any camera mounted mic such as the popular Rode VideoMics. You can also easily connect a wireless to either the XLR or mini-jack inputs. Connect two audio sources at a time for two channel recording. Each channel can easily be independently adjusted for the optimum recording level – even while recording. The DXA-MICRO PRO gives you the ability to connect whatever microphones work best for your situation.
Super Easy to Setup and Use
No Menus, No Syncing, No Problem. 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. Nothing could be easier to use or provide better performance.
Overview the day-micro-pro from Bechtel is an active, 2-channel audio adapter. It is designed to connect one slur mic with 48v phantom power and two 1/8" microphones to a slur or camcorder with a 1/8" mic input. Both 1/8" inputs feature plug-in power. This allows you to record the audio directly to the camera in sync with the picture for videographers, sound designers, and more. With dual gain-adjustment settings, the adapter provides a stronger audio level to the camera and bypasses the noisy camera preamplifiers. Built-in good/over level indicators allow you to verify the signal levels at a glance and the trim controls let you adjust the output signal for optimum recording. A headphone jack monitors your audio from the adapter during recording or camera playback. Finally, the day-micro-pro will conveniently mount under the camera for a secure attachment to a tripod base or will mount on the hot shoe above the camera.

I use a PANASONIC LUMIX G7 4K Mirrorless Camera, with 14-42mm MEGA O.I.S. Lens, 16 Megapixels, 3 Inch Touch LCD, DMC-G7KK (USA BLACK) as my 4K video camera. Even when I only use a single microphone, the DXA-Micro allows me easier control over audio levels without having to hope AGC in the camera (which I have turned off) works when it should. It also saves the hassle of going into the menus during a shoot do adjust the levels. While I do use the on screen audio level meter to help advise when I need to change audio, I do the rest from the front of the DXA-Micro. I like the versatility of being able to use either a 3.5mm or XLR connector without requiring adapters to use either.
I wish that I didnt have to use a 9v battery but with everything this device does there probably isnt a choice. With the quality and ease of use of this device, when I have a similar need in the future, BeachTek will be the first company I look at for a solution.
At first the battery life, being only 1.5-3 hours, was going make it less than 5 stars for me, but I found EBL Lith-ion rechargeable 9V batteries last 3x longer per charge than the normal alkaline's. Up to 10 hours with phantom power off. And of course they are Rechargeable. This makes using this device a completely different experience and there is almost no downsides to think of besides nit picking on minor stuff. For the price this thing can't be beat. If you want to know more about its capabilities I recommend checking out the review by DSLR Video Shooter on YouTube.
