This is a question whether the manufacturer has tested its equipment

By ludovic38, 17/10/2011
technology is used: analogue
connectors: XLR, jack
effects, or types of effects: no


Simple to implement


The sound of the instrument is not correctly reproduced.


How long you use it: 1 day
Have you tried many other models before buying: yes
What is so special that you love the most, the least: filter and attenuator of very poor quality.
How would you rate the quality / price: far too expensive ... This is a question whether the manufacturer has tested its matéreil !!!!!!!!!

Cheap Trick

By hillmore, 14/03/2012
Active direct box cheap, compact, rugged metal housing.

Accept the instrument or speaker level
Requires phantom power or 9V battery
Off switch
Phase inverter
Attenuator pad
XLR input jack or 1/4 "
Parallel output jack to 1/4 "


Configuration instinctive.


Produced fairly neutral, the instrument is well respected.


I use it rarely, only when I play without an amp plugged into a table without Hi-Z input.
Utilié ever on stage, but it is always in my bag in case my amp has a problem.
To use it on stage, a rubber boot and a fastening system seem necessary.
Nice little device, convenient and discreet.

Doing a good job!

Active DI box

Low-cut filter

-Phase inversion

Suppressor ground loop "ground / lift"

-Powered by 9V battery or phantom power 18-48v

-The hull is aluminum, and all seems very solid look is nice


Not rocket science in using an Active DI Box! The manual is simple and concise, but adequate, with a description of the specifications.


I did not notice any particular color to use, particular impact or low-cut filter on the sound quality.

I use it in output pedalboard for electric guitar, before attacking the sound. This is a high quality pedalboard.

My electric guitars are, among others, an Ibanez AK95 and ESP Forest GT Standard: typed and sounds very different!


I use it for almost 7 months.

I have nothing negative to say: it is his job and forget. I did not notice any sound deterioration. I use it exclusively Phantom Power and can not give any indication of the duration of the 9v battery.

Otherwise, I like the look and quality of workmanship. But its shape is not very practical for installation on a pedalboard.

I see no reason not to repeat that choice! Especially since the price is in the middle of DI Box input range. I'll also get one second shortly.

Art Xdirect this satisfies me in that I actually use!
