Sonosax SX-M2D2 Coming...
« on: September 28, 2017, 10:37:57 AM »
Sonosax (via their 40th anniversary email) mentioned:

"A new 2 channels mic preamplifier / converter SX-M2D2 - under development - with AES I/O and USB interface"

Hope this actually is released, small and is affordable (less than $1K)

With the price of all their other gear I would rule out the "affordable" part.

Their ad8+ sells for about $4500-5000 - so that's about $600 per channel - so the unit will probably sell in the $1250 range but you never know

It would be interesting to know if it's actually a SX-M2 w/AD..  or based off of the SX-M2 w/AD.

I'd be surprised if it is based off the SX-M2 - I would think it would use their newest designs that are are used in the R4+ and AD8+  and I would also hope it is smaller then the original M2 as they crammed 8 channels of preamp/AD into a package smaller then 2x as big as the original M2 with the AD8+.  The AD8+ doesn't have internal batteries, nor analog outs - so we will see.  They may add a headphone to this unit.

my issue is the lack of a inexpensive and simple bit bucket on the market. Why is this so hard?

My mixpre6 has no digi ins, so in theory I'd be interested in a fancy pre for the line in on 5 and 6. I'm not interested in paying for a AD stage I'd never use.

The http://puebloaudio.com/isleta---battery-preamp.html looked promising, but seems to be vaporware.

If sonosax could do a small analog only pre, I'd buy it.

Frankly it looks perfect for 5/6 on the mixpre6. I’m not sure I want to Pay for an ad stage I won’t use though.

Thanks for the update.  I'm still trying to wrap my head around that unit being the size of an iPhone 6.
