I just did a conversion of 2 DPA 4060. So that they can connect directly to any "plug-in power" recording devices, such as PCM-D50 or camcorder. With a custom built box, I can also power the DPA 4060 with phantom power and deliver balanced signal to the pre or recorder.
I don't know if there's any stock product provide this flexibility.

As I remember (may be wrong) the DPA mini mics can run on anything from 5 to 50 volts and the Sony has 5 volts so should work IF you could interface the DPA connector to a 1/8 connector.

On the other hand, the price of the 4060/4061 might be overkilll for this useage. I love the 4061's that I have but for voice I'm satisfied with the Voice Technologies VT500 lavs and a Countryman B6 that have 1/8 connectors and work with the Sony. As I recall these are all significantly less pricey than the DPA's

Last weekend I completed a successful recording session with an 8-channel USB interface (M-Audio FastTrack Ultra 8R) into my Sony VAIO VGN-NW270F laptop (2.2GHz Intel Core2 Duo) using Reaper audio software. I saw no issues with 8 channels via USB. This same interface did NOT work without glitching on a 1.6GHz Intel Atom netbook.
