Beachtek DXA-5DA review
Filmmakeriq has a good review of the Beachtek DXA-5DA, a pre-mixer that adds "professional capabilities" to your HD-DSLR rig.

Personally, I have a Beachtek mixer/adaptor that I used to use with a video camera to connect XLR mics to the camera. It was really great, but with that particular camera I could still monitor what the camera was recording, because the video camera had a microphone jack. Unfortunately, not all HDSLR cameras let you monitor audio being recorded, and while the mixer provides an audio monitor jack, it's only showing what it's sending to the camera, not what is actually being recorded. I think I'd rather spend the money on a separate audio recorder.
