"The BeachTek DXA-6A is a two channel, transformer balanced XLR adapter with built-in 48 volt phantom power supplies. This adapter is designed to easily attach two professional, balanced microphones or wireless systems to the Sony VX and FX series of camcorders. The DXA-6A 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 DXA-6A is very easy to set up and use. Its rugged construction ensures years of use and its compact size fits neatly under the 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."
