Five-Channel Portable Production Mixer with Built-In Recorder

Sound Devices 552


The introduction of the 552 mixer brings a powerful new feature to field mixers, a high-quality integrated audio recorder. It is unquestionably convenient to have a built-in recorder with a field mixer. With the addition of its recorder, one question that comes up is whether the 552 can be substituted in place of a 7-Series recorder.

Audio Performance

While both the 552 and 7-Series recorders have excellent audio performance, when the lowest noise recording is required, the 7-Series recorders are the choice. The combination of the 7-Series' extended bandwidth microphone preamplifiers and their high-dynamic range analog-to-digital converters provides increased dynamic range and sensitivity. This translates to lower noise recordings, especially when distant micing low level sound sources. If your microphones can take advantage of the low noise, the 7-Series will outperform them. The 702, 702T, 722, and 744T mic inputs have 114 dB of dynamic range, and the 788T microphone inputs have 123 dB of dynamic range. The figures on the 788T approach the theoretical limit of A-to-D performance.

The 552 is a capable performer, as well. It has 103 dB of dynamic range and is suitable for most applications. Its A-to-D performance is the biggest difference, with the 552 having a bias toward increased power efficiency and the 788T having a bias towards increased performance, especially noise performance. When the widest bandwidth and lowest noise recording is required, choose the 7-Series.

Advantage 7-Series

Input Routing Options

The 552 provides fixed routing options for selecting outputs and input signals for recording. From the factory the left/right outputs are sent to the recorder, perfect for a recording of a dual-mono or stereo mix. Other options are available, including input pairs 1/2 and 3/4, plus combinations of inputs and outputs. The same source selected for recording are available for digital output using the AES A output pair. 552 sound files are always two-track polyphonic WAV files.

7-Series recorders, whether two, four, or eight input, allow any input to be routed to any recording track. This allows any possible routing combination and offers a great deal of flexibility. Additionally, 7-Series recorders can record either monophonic WAV files or poly WAV files.

Radio San Marino and RSM Classic Upgrade with DHD RX2 and SX2 Audio Mixers Posted: 26/09/2022
Radio San Marino and RSM Classic Upgrade with DHD RX2 and SX2 Audio Mixers

Radio San Marino and RSM Classic have chosen DHD RX2 and SX2 audio mixers as key elements of a production system upgrade at their studios in San Marino City. The project forms part of a total rebuild conducted by Milan-based broadcast SI BVmedia.

"Radio San Marino and its sister channel needed a system that could be customised to suit their current workflow while retaining the freedom to allow future expansion," says Roberto Zeccara, Senior Project Manager at BVmedia. "DHD's RX2 and SX2 mixers were the preferred choice both on operational and technical grounds. The channels' DJs find them logical and intuitive to work with and their technical support staff appreciate the logical configuration, excellent signal quality and inherent robustness. Mixer settings such as source IDs and signal levels are clearly shown on touch screens incorporated into each mixing panel. DHD products also allow operators to transition easily from one mixer to another ."

The Future of Broadcast Technology
Sebastian Richter

Spotlight on Sebastian Richter, Vice President Media Systems at Rohde & Schwarz.

We are currently in the middle of a transition phase with migration to several new technologies, from the move to IP-based infrastructure and the shift from linear to video-on-demand (VOD).
The question for all of us is how long that transition phase will last; it is going to be faster for some customers then for others – national broadcasters, for example – it will be a slower process.

The Future of Broadcast Technology
Manfred Reitmeier

Now that OTT and VOD have become more mainstream, many commentators talk about traditional broadcast methods, like terrestrial transmission, being a thing of the past. With so many new platforms and non-traditional content services carving out a growing slice of the market, you can be forgiven for thinking that linear over-the-air television is on its way out. The reality is that the industry must strike a balance between meeting consumers’ shifting habits and the business and operational needs of content providers.

A switch in time: how KVM can unlock the future of broadcasting
Chris Smeeton

One of the major changes for broadcasters during the pandemic has been the shift towards remote production; by no means a new phenomenon in an IP environment, yet accelerated under lockdown to accommodate travel and gathering restrictions. A 2021 report found that almost 40% of broadcast professionals now employ remote production, up 9% on the previous year.

Cloud integration: The only way is up
Francois Vaillant

In 2017 we saw the introduction of SMPTE 2110 and since then, the transition to IP has emerged as a priority for broadcasters looking to streamline their operations, decrease their footprint and effectively integrate with an industry in a rapid state of flux. A 2020 survey by Devoncroft found that almost 20% of broadcasters had already deployed SMPTE 2110, and over 25% were planning to do so. Then came the pandemic, precipitating the need for on-the-fly collaboration and accelerating the transition to remote, virtual and cloud production.

A good technical specification will detail precisely what is required, from the equipment to the cables connecting it. Many specifications will give  particular manufacturers and model numbers. On many occasions, this makes tendering simple and gives vendors a secure and fair way to bid.
