As promised, here’s a comparison between the Azden FMX-DSLR, Beachtek DXA-SLR, Juicedlink RM333 Riggy, and the Tascam DR-60d. If you’d like to skip the closeup look at the 3 audio adapters and go right to the audio tests, they start at 5:30 in the video.

No matter which XLR audio adapter you choose, they will all improve the audio recorded by your DSLR Camera. If you just want the best preamp with the most gain the Juicedlink RM333 Riggy is the clear winner. If you are after ease of use and the most features the Tascam DR-60d has a clear advantage. If you are just looking for an XLR audio adapter that’s easy to use, the Azden FMX-DSLR and Beachtek DXA-SLR should fit the bill.

As I said in the video, there isn’t really a right or wrong answer here. There are situations in one unit might come in handy more than another, but it all depends on what you need. However, out of the whole group the Tascam DR-60d offers up the most value. At it’s current price of $199 with a free copy of pluraleyes you really do get your money’s worth.
