Description

The Sound Devices 552 Production Mixer/Recorder uses top analog and digital technologies, along with advanced mechanical construction, to give professionals a superb sounding, compact, lightweight and power-efficient mixer that is equally at home in simple run-and-gun applications or in complex multi-input, multi-output production setups.

Portable Studio Quality

The 552 contains five precision, high-dynamic-range, transformer-balanced microphone inputs with expanded gain and headroom. The studio-grade inputs have their own limiter, sweepable high-pass filter, and pre-or-post-fade direct output.

Multiple Recording Sources

The 552 integrated digital audio recorder writes industry-standard Broadcast Wave files to SD and SDHC cards. The recorder is ideal for applications where a high-quality, 24-bit local recording is required. Either the outputs or combinations of inputs and outputs can be assigned as record sources.

Rugged Durability

The 552, like all Sound Devices products, is built to withstand the physical and environmental extremes of field production. Top and bottom chassis panels are made from molded, metalized carbon fiber for superior durability and weight reduction. The front panel is gasketed for water resistance.

  • Five high-performance mic/line inputs with limiters
  • Direct outputs per input, pre/post and mic/line selectable
