You can actually get very good sound out of the Microtrack II if you run an active preamp in front of it. It's still not as clean as the H4n, but it's close. And you can then run the preamp into the 5D with Magic Lantern firmware, if you want in-camera audio.

You can hear the juicedLink CX231 into the Microtrack II here:

And compare the Microtrack II to the H4n here:

Thanks for the response.

Is there any difference between the CX211 and the CX231 beyond the 231 having phantom power?

Dana:

I have the CX231, and it looks like phantom is the primary difference on the spec sheet.

Jon mentioned the Sound Devices MM-1 on the first page of this thread--anyone have experiences with that? MM-1 Line Driver / HP Monitor | Sound Devices, LLC It doesn't have a mixer, but it does have a headphone output, mic-pre, peak limiter, and phantom power. And I've heard the Sound Devices stuff is very high quality.

eta: I just thought of a couple disadvantages of the MM-1 compared to the Juicedlinks--the MM-1's output is XLR, so you'd need an adapter for the 5D. Also the MM-1 won't fit neatly under the camera like the Juicedlink. The SD MP-1 is about the same price as the JL CX-231 (with some advantages as well as disadvantages afaik).

While SoundDevices has a great reputation, I think the juicedLink is the better match for the 5D Mark II. As mentioned, the JL output is plug-and-play compatible. Also, the CX-231 is stereo, while the MP-1 is mono for about the same price. My tests show the juicedLink to be dead quiet with clean gain. Even if the SD is cleaner (I haven't used it), the improvement would be negligible, considering the 16-bit A/D in the camera.

Frankly, the only advantages I see with the SD MP-1 would be if you were planning to move to an XLR, line level system, only needed a mono preamp, and wanted the Sound Devices name. For use with the 5D2, two channels worth of value, and direct mounting, I'd go with the juicedLink.

Fortunately, this isn't a trade off between functionality, cost, and sound quality. The sound through the juicedLink is excellent.
