My savior - Reviews Samson Technologies S-direct plus

2 entries asymmetric 6.35, 2 outputs / asymmetric link in Jack also 6.35, and exits with the Treaty XLR (balanced so) signal.
All in a sturdy aluminum casing and feels good longevity.

UTILIZATION

Just need a square 9V battery, you plug in the jack input on XLR spring hop and voila.
The record is not in my opinion nothing.
The switch "GTR / SPK" is just the entry level, the switch "Battery / Phantom," it is he who will allow the circuit power (in my case it is ON / OFF button) and switch "Ground Lift" which serves to isolate the circuit ground.
The unbalanced outputs is if there ever needs to get out the signal to an amp for example, just to get the treaty for recording signal.
For my part, I used to have a balanced audio input signal to my speakers, just to have more parasites.

SOUND QUALITY

Well I am amazed because for the price, no breath, no, neutral signal and cleaned of parasites that I had (and frankly I went away with the mass of the power of the PC in the audio signal + permanent buzz ). Frankly nickel, ultra clean signal.
I have not tested that it could give on a synth, guitar or another, this is not what I wanted but there's every chance that the quality is well.
After there is probably better, I have not tested other models but yes putting more expensive, they could have better. For my part, I have a nickel signal in my speakers, I do not see why I will spend more https://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif

OVERALL OPINION

My use of the DI is especially in order to eliminate noise and masses present in my speakers. In fact, my card is in a desktop PC, I had constant noise, the sound of scrolling mouse, navigation, hell. Even putting a filter on the PC power and the speakers, I could barely has alleviate the problem.
So immediately after plugging the DI, turning my speakers, I wondered if I had everything plugged in, if I had her because I heard nothing. Sticking my ears to the speakers, I saw that if I heard they worked well, it's just that the signal was almost neutral, as if they were extinct.
In short, I was advised to connect a DI between my card and speakers and frankly it should be a general council so it removes any possible interference signal. It's magical limit.
Frankly, a remake? A downright but yeah.
In fact, the longer it goes, the more I think Samson are really good stuff for a very affordable price (their S-Patch +, unbeatable quality / price ratio).
At that price (€ 44 purchased new this week), it'll be hard to get better.
