I have longed for a DA since I bought my MK-V Nexus base. Howard tells me that the next version of the D Box will have an internal DA. Also, they can mod the current V2 version with a DA.

Does anybody have this mod? I can buy an external DA, but then cabling to the Modulus and Archos becomes messy.

Hi Mark, I'm not sure where you are located but I recently had Terry West in Redondo Beach install a 1x4 VAC-Brick DA internally in my Steadicam sled. The DA was under $125 USD and Terry did a very professional install for a very reasonable price. The only buffered DA output on my sled prior to that was built into the monitor / frameline generator output so with every device I plugged in, the monitor dimmed accordingly. Now, with Terry's fine craftsmanship I have four outputs from my sled plus the one from my monitor; enough to handle a miniDV, ARCHOS, Transmitter and the monitor, plus an extra with framelines if I want it.

Email or message me directly if you want Terry's contact information.

Dear Robert,

Do you have a Nexus base? I know that the PRO2 base has some room for an internal DA, but looking at my Nexus, I questioned if there was enough real estate to fit a DA inside.

I have heard great things about Terry's skill & service. If he can fit a DA inside a Nexus, that is a great option. I have his contact info.

Thanks,
