552 Five-Channel Portable Production Mixer with Built-In Recorder
The Sound Devices 552 Production Mixer uses top analog and digital technologies, along with advanced mechanical construction, to give professionals a superb sounding, compact, lightweight and power-efficient mixer that is equally at home in simple run-and-gun applications or in complex multi-input, multi-output production setups.

Portable Studio Quality
The 552 contains five precision, high-dynamic-range, transformer-balanced microphone inputs with expanded gain and headroom. The studio-grade inputs have their own limiter, sweepable high-pass filter, and pre-or-post-fade direct output.

Multiple Recording Sources
The 552 integrated digital audio recorder writes industry-standard Broadcast Wave files to SD and SDHC cards. The recorder is ideal for applications where a high-quality, 24-bit local recording is required. Either the outputs or combinations of inputs and outputs can be assigned as record sources.

Rugged Durability
The 552, like all Sound Devices products, is built to withstand the physical and environmental extremes of field production. Top and bottom chassis panels are made from molded, metallized carbon fiber for superior durability and weight reduction. The front panel is gasketed for water resistance.
