    Thanks to Patrick for the find, I might rent one on some projects. That said, from a form factor perspective, I just want something as small and light as possible that has good pre-amps, rock solid 48v phantom power and a card slot for redundant recording upstream from the camera audio section. Maybe a Lectro-Sax love child...

    Blaire, is not the Sound Devices Mix Pre II 3 a bit what you are asking for? It is 0.480grams and phantom power.
    It is small as well, but the Sonoxas is of course a bit smaller. Its cheaper too.

I realize the M2D2 offers lots of potential configurations, but AFAIK the vast majority of RedUsers run RED Base Expanders. Would the M2D2 be able to provide such a robust signal that you could turn the gain far enough down on the pre-amp inside the Base Expander to overcome it's limitations?

    To connect to a Base Expander, you could use a TA3F to stereo mini cable like this https://www.trewaudio.com/product/re...dio-cat3f18ms/ ? The M2D2 has 1x line output on TA3, 2 channels analog unbalanced.

    and you could power the Sonosax M2D2 with the Base Expander's USB port or Panasonic NCR18650B battery.
