Las Vegas - Apr 15, 2007 - The Sony PCM-D1, introduced last year, has an added accessory to accommodate XLR mic connections: the XLR-1 adapter. The adapter provides two transformer-balanced microphone inputs with switchable phantom power. The supplied horizontal mounting bracket permits mounting underneath or beside the PCM-D1.
The recorder is equipped with a matched pair of built-in condenser microphones and a mic pre-amp from Analog Devices. The new option allows users to connect their own mics. The adapter uses four AA batteries to provide phantom power to condenser mics. The unit will be available in July.
