Overview

Overview

The Sound Devices 552 is a compact, lightweight, and portable 5-channel production mixer ideal for complex multi-input, multi-output production setups.

The unit contains five precision high-dynamic-range transformer-balanced microphone inputs with expanded gain and headroom, and each input accepts audio sources of various types and levels. Inputs have their own limiter, sweepable high-pass filter, and pre-or-post-fade direct output.

The 552 has an integrated two-track, digital audio recorder writing industry-standard Broadcast Wave files to SD and SDHC media. A simple joystick controller is used to take command of recording functions. Push up to begin recording. Either WAV or MP3 files can be recorded. Recordings can be either 24-bit or 16-bit, with WAV files having sampling rates from 44.1 kHz up to 96 kHz.

Its three sets of balanced master outputs (plus numerous unbalanced connections) provide complete connectivity for multi-camera and complex production setups. Also, a digital output option is available for either the XLR connectors or the 10-pin multi-pin outputs. When selected in the Setup Menu, the master XLR outputs can output four channels of 24-bit (or 16-bit) AES/EBU signals, the source of which is selected in the Setup Menu.
