scart adaptor?

Is there any way I can have a scart adaptor installed onto my FX1? Becuse I really dont want to go the ZIU route and pay an additional $1,000

Do you really mean Scart as in the European AV connectors found on the back of European TVs and VCR/DVD players?

Don't you mean XLR, as in the professional microphone/balanced audio connectors?

Oops. I goofed.

What I'm trying to get at is,

Will this unit (http://www.beachtek.com/dxa6.html) work for the FX1?

That should work. Do you really need phantom power though, or just the balanced XLR's? If you don't need phantom power then this model is less expensive:

FWIW, the Z1 includes a lot of other improvements over the FX1 aside from the XLR inputs. See the following:

A SCART on an HD! Best yet! ! ! Sorry, it's a British thing . . "SCART - Once invented you can't get rid of!"

Thanks Jesse - I was really feeling down in the dumps today . .

Grazie

There might be some other features, but as long as the picture is the same (which it is)there isnt really a big difference performance wise. I just didnt really want to get into the $5,000+ range, I'm still in high school.. so not for a few more years will I get into the really high end stuff, not that Im saying the FX1 isnt high end, which it is, I just run on my own budget.

But anyways, I'll look into one of the DXA adaptors and see what I can get.

Jesse

PS :: And yes, I do need phantom. Because if it isnt, the mics would be self powered (internal battery) or non-powered (like a dynamic microphone), or via a mixer..

i am not sure will this work for you, but it's cheap and converts rca/chinch to xlr (and viceversa) - check datavideo site:

i think this unit costs about 120 euro (maybe less? not sure)

hope this can help
