looks like a high quality version of juiced link, especially on the bottom of the dslr.

The AD part isn't clear to me. It looks like you can set the output to be AES on the right XLR out. You might be able to change 44.1/48/96 with the small black knob on the front? Hopefully its not controlled over USB. I'm assuming it's 24 bit, but it doesn't state that anywhere. I wonder if they kept the transformers? Seems like there wouldn't be room for the AD components if they did. I wonder how the pre and AD compare to the USBpre 2 and the 7xx.

any idea on price? I couldn't find anything.  And it needs 10V so it will not run on DVD battery like the MP-2/mixpre  Hmmmm, I wonder how different this sounds compared to the USBPre2

Specs say 10v but picture shows 5v

Transformer input.    States it is 24 bit AES output, but does not look to be switchable

The pic say 5v-18v!!  I think that is the same as the MP2/mixpre

interesting.

usbpre2 has spdif out in coax/optical, no aes.
mixpre-d has aes and no spdif.
both have usb.

the usbpre2 is transformerless
the mixpre-d is tranformerful.  :P

Noticed the P12 option is still in tact on the mixpre-d.

Yeah this is a cool feature, especially for Schoeps users since P12 can power your mics basically twice as long compared with P48 with the same battery supply.  The MixPre, I noticed, can do P48 or P15, which would not be useful in this way since Schoeps (CMC6, CCM, etc.) can use P12 or P48, but not P15.  I like the look of this new MixPre-D also, nicer meter lights.

Price: $750

That is very reasonable....the regular mix pre is usually 665$....100$ for a/d section isn't bad as far as I am concerned..

It don't make sense the USBpre2 is $650 only thing it won't do is P12...and the DSLR hook up but really $100 more?  Hmmm

I guess if you need AES or P12 (or like transformers), but I agree, it's sort of outclassed by the pre2.
