Power Options for 833

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! 


I'm new to the forum, glad to be here. 


So i bought an 833, and am quite surprised that there are not really good powering options on my eyes. I can't get my hands on a smartbattery-cup

with two outputs to Hirose/Ta4. So i'd have to go the route of using a hirose-Ta4 cable, which isn't really supported due to the increased power draw (I wouldn't use onboard

charging though).

How do you power your 8-Series? 

Thanks and happy recording - Martin

Hi Martin, 

I use an Audioroot distro with Hirose outputs to feed my 833. 
I was concerned like you at the beginning and asked Audioroot what was their advice; actually, there is no issue with the Hirose if you don’t charge the L-mount batteries attached to the 833. The internal charger needs more current but the not the 833 itself.
