The DXA-GO is a two-channel, audio adapter / bracket combo that lets you mount, connect and control your RODE GO receiver plus a second wireless or self-powered camera mic to your camera. Also ideal for the new RODE GO II as it easily allows you to precisely adjust the audio level of each channel with the built-in trim controls. Noise free passive circuitry requires no batteries or power to operate. Its compact size fits neatly on top of any mirrorless, DSLR or camcorder that has a standard mounting shoe.

The mounting shoe on the front of the adapter allows you to position the GO receiver to face you while recording to easily view the display. Two additional shoes allow you to mount other accessories like a second wireless, light, or a self-powered camera mic like the popular RODE VideoMic Pro or new VideoMic NTG. Mounting the GO in front and a self-powered camera mic on top makes for a very neat, compact setup.
Controlling the audio levels is a snap – real volume knobs mean no hunting through multi-layer menus trying to find or change settings. The two mono mini-jack inputs and one stereo input provide plenty of versatility. Connect a single or any combination of two wireless or wired mics at the same time. 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.
Want to connect a sound mixer? No problem! Simply use an third party XLR adapter cable like this one from B&H between the mixer and the STEREO input of the DXA-GO for two channel audio. The DXA-GO lets you easily dial in the exact amount of attenuation you need for line or mic level feeds from the mixer for proper recording levels. You can also connect the mixer output wirelessly with most wireless systems.
With no electronics to get in the way, the DXA-GO provides noise free directly to the camera. The adapter is also virtually unclipable and offers an extremely wide dynamic range. Since it is passive, no batteries or power are required to operate the adapter.
Quickly and easily adjust the proper recording levels for the best performance. Detented volume controls provide drift free operation and precise control. You can even use the bracketing feature to set two different levels on both channels when using a single mono mic giving you a backup in case one channel is blown out.
Set the output mode to STEREO when connecting two mono mics or one stereo mic for two channel recording. Set the output mode to MONO when using one mic for dual channel mono recording. You can also connect a mono mic that has a TRS connector to the STEREO input to bracket the audio.
High quality components and a robust passive design make this super reliable and dependable. All wrapped up in a compact extruded aluminum chassis.
