A built-in high-quality microphone preamp gives you all the juice you need to get great sound, and you can dial in the perfect level with its nicely-sized gain knob. Condenser microphones can be supplied with +48 volts of phantom power, which makes it possible to use almost any kind of microphone. The 1/4” (6.35mm) input is impedance-matched to provide the best sound quality for electric guitars, basses, and acoustic instruments with pickups.

The headphone output on the SmartRig II makes it possible you to listen to your sound, even if your camera doesn’t have a headphone jack. It’s an affordable and ultra-portable device with impeccable sound quality that provides an impressive amount of functionality to a wide range of uses.
