The dADB delivers an extremely flat and wide frequency response even at high input levels, making it a virtually acoustically transparent DI solution.
Input attenuation on each channel allows for a wide range of source signal levels. Independent parallel thru jacks allow for tapping the signal chains. A Ground Lift on each channel allows for totally separate the input and output signal grounds to isolate two systems when required, thus reducing hum and ground-loop noise.
Switchable low pass Bessel filters eliminate high frequency interference. Operating outside of the audio range these complex and effective filter circuits are primarily intended to eliminate radio frequency interference before it gets into the main system. They also effectively reduce digital computer noise making the dADB the ideal DI solution for laptops, computer workstations and peripherals when used in stereo PA applications.
The dADB's active circuitry is powered by phantom power or by an internal 9V battery when external power is not available. Low current draw (less than 7.5 mA) should provide more than 100 hours of operation with a new battery (alkaline recommended).
The compact black all steel case and active design ensure unmatched long-term reliability in Live Sound, Permanent/Fixed Install, D.J., or virtually any PA application.
The unit has 2 x high quality isolation transformers that prevent ground loops when connecting various systems together.
The Dual RDB accepts 1/4" TRS and XLR line level inputs and outputs mic or instrument levels. The Dual RDB's variable level controls allow volume control to be set at the source rather than in the studio, AV room, audio closet or installation rack. A 20Hz to 20 kHz frequency response ensures the Dual RDB will function transparently with any high quality audio source.
The input attenuator switches allow for a wide range of signal levels and the input Thru jacks allow for tapping off of your signal chain. The ground lift switches let you totally separate the input and output signal grounds, when appropriate, to isolate 2 systems, thereby reducing hum and ground-loop noise.
The DUALXDirect's active circuitry is powered by phantom voltage from the output connections or by an internal 9V battery, when external power is not available. When powered by a battery, it draws less than 7.5 mA which should provide more than 100 hours of operation with a new battery (alkaline recommended). If phantom power is available, then the DUALXDirect will automatically draw its power from the external source. The power on/off switch lights more dimly when the unit is running off of the battery, lights more brightly when it is running off of phantom power, and is off when the unit is inactive.
The compact black-anodized all aluminum case and it's active design allow the DUALXDirect to provide years of trouble free service in live sound, permanent/fixed install, DJ, and virtually any PA application. It's full feature set, rugged construction, and high-end specifications make the DUALXDirect the obvious choice.

The ground lift switch lets you totally separate the input and output signal grounds, when appropriate, to isolate 2 systems, thereby reducing hum and ground-loop noise.
What further sets the Xdirect apart from other Active DI boxes are its extended features and versatility. ART have added a switchable low pass filter that cuts out all very high frequency interference. This bessel filter on the input is placed out of the audio range and is primarily intended to reduce radio frequency interference before it gets into the main system. The filter is also very effective in reducing any digital computer noise artifacts when using the Xdirect as an interface between a computer based audio workstation and your monitors.
A phase invert switch, while not normally included with your run of the mill D.I. box, has been added to allow you to switch signal polarity right at the source. This feature is especially handy when you are combining a direct tap with a microphone feed in the mix.
The Xdirects active circuitry is powered by an internal 9V battery, when external power is not available. In this mode it draws 3.5 ma which should give you more than 250 hours of operation off of a new battery. If phantom power is available, then the Xdirect will automatically draw its power from the external source. The battery on/off switch lights dim when the unit is running off of the battery, lights brightly when it is running off of phantom power, and is off when the unit is inactive.
The compact black anodized all aluminum case and it's flexible power design allow the Xdirect to provide years of trouble free service in live sound, permanent/fixed install, DJ, and virtually any PA application. It's full feature set, rugged construction, and high-end specifications make the Xdirect the obvious choice whenever you have to interface high impedance sources with a low noise balanced system.

With its parallel 1/4" in and out jacks, Behringer's DI600P allows you to plug in your instrument and send the same signal to your onstage amplifier, while the XLR Output sends a balanced signal to your mixer. A ground lift switch eliminates hum associated with ground loops and our high performance transformer provides the ultimate in signal integrity.
Just flip the Inst/Amp switch and the DI600P can easily accommodate either the low level signal of a high impedance mic or guitar (inst mode), or the speaker output of a guitar amplifier (amp mode). Even if your amp cranks out as much as 3,000 Watts, you get a perfect signal every time!
Direct Injection (DI) boxes make it possible to connect guitars, basses and keyboards (as well as other line level devices) to audio mixers and recorders. They are absolutely essential for proper impedance matching and to maintain signal integrity. Behringer active DIs feature "buffered" inputs that won't degrade the source signal like passive DI boxes can. Balanced signals leaving the DI800 are extremely low impedance (typically less than 680 ohms), and far less susceptible to noise and interference.
When it comes right down to it, all DI boxes do the same thing, right? Yes, but the DI800 does much more than just "bass guitar in, mic level signal out." It really is a highly versatile input signal toolkit.
Here are just two special features that differentiate the DI800 from most standard DI boxes:
- You'd like to connect your guitar amp's speaker output to your mixer? Not a problem, the DI800 features a -30dB attenuation switch, allowing you to connect to speaker outputs (up to 3,000 Watts!) and convert them to balanced XLR outs.
- Got a weak incoming signal? The DI800 has a +20dB switch, which really comes in handy for boosting low-level input signals.
Of course, the DI800 provides a link output for easy connection to other equipment, such as onstage amplifiers and monitor consoles. Servo balanced performance guarantees ultra flat frequency response, and the gold plated XLR output connectors provide reliable, low noise operation. Per channel ground lift switches eliminate ground loop hum problems. The DI800 does everything a standalone DI can do - times eight!
Unlike their passive counterparts, active DI boxes require a power source to make their internal electronics work. The DI800 provides two power options: 120 - 240 V~ from the nearest wall outlet or power strip, or 18 to 48V DC from your mixer's phantom power supply.
With its parallel 1/4" in and out jacks, the DI400P allows you to plug in your instrument and send the same signal to your onstage amplifier, while the XLR Output sends a balanced signal to your mixer. A ground lift switch eliminates hum associated with ground loops and our high performance transformer provides the ultimate in signal integrity.
The Ultra DI DI400P is compact and we house it in a tough, road ready metal case. This means the DI box will give you great sound gig after gig, session after session. And thanks to its low price, you can afford to outfit the entire band!
Connect the output from electric guitars, bass amplifiers, keyboards, etc., directly to a console mixer without the use of a microphone.
Built for toughness and reliability, the Di1 has all the features of a fully featured gig-ready workhorse DI unit.
The continuously variable input signal attenuator can accommodate a wide range of signal levels and its passive design means clean, quiet and uncolored operation with no power required.
In addition, you can choose parallel or series wiring. For instance, two 8 ohm cabinets can be connected for a total load of 4 ohms (parallel) or 16 ohms (in series). The device is entirely passive and does not affect tone in any way.
The DACCAPO box ensures optimal impedance matching and eliminates ground loop hum through the use of a transformer. The signal level to the amplifier can be adjusted with a volume control.
Designed to Joe Bonamassa's high standards for a huge but tightly focused tone the exclusive JB switch brings the output signal to the fore and takes it "right in your face." The PDI 03 JB's dual speaker simulation filters are carefully voiced to authentically replicate the frequency response of classic and contemporary loudspeakers and cabinets. The unit's input sensitivity is adjustable for amps up to 200 watts or line and instrument level equipment.
Delivering consistent guitar tone from show to show the PDI-03 JB can also be used to add realistic speaker flavours to preamps and dirt boxes in direct recording applications. The rugged powder coated steel enclosure features high quality Amphenol connectors and a ground lift to remove hum resulting from earth loops.
For amp DI WITHOUT speakers a dummy load with matching impedance must be connected. We recommend the Palmer Power Attenuator PDI06 and the Palmer Dual Load Box PLB2X8.
The PGA03 Y-box can also be used as a line driver for long cable runs. Also, the PGA03 features a phase reverse switch for the AMP 2 output when using pre-amps or amps that are out of phase.
The DUETTO allows two active sources to be mixed to a single amplifier input. Each input has a volume controller for level adjustment. The DUETTO is typically used when guitar teachers want to practise with their students through a single input amp. The DUETTO is however very versatile and can also be used, for example, as cable driver, mono merger and recording preamp.
Due to its low power consumption, the DUETTO can be powered by a 9V battery permitting extended operation. A DC input is provided for use with a power adapter.
The PAN01 PRO comes with a high quality reinforced nylon bag with cut-outs for connecting the box inside the bag.
Professional dual channel line isolating unit for stage and studio use. A unique Neutrik input connector accepts both male XLR and jack plugs. The PLI-02 easily converts unbalanced outputs into balanced ones. It may also be used to transformer balance electronically balanced inputs and outputs.
Connecting the PLI06
Equipment providing audio output on RCA phono sockets is connected to the PLI06's inputs using a shielded RCA stereo cable. For best results with laptops we recommend using their headphones output which is usually on a 3.5 mm miniature stereo socket. Use a shielded TRS mini jack to 2x RCA phono cable for connection to the PLI06. Place the unit close to the signal source and keep the input cable as short as possible since the unbalanced signal path is susceptible to interference. The PLI06's output is on a standard wiring male XLR connector. Use a high-quality microphone cable for connection to the mixing console. Due to the balanced lo-Z signal provided by the Palmer Line Level Converter cable lengths are uncritical while interference- free signal integrity is maintained.
The Samson MD1 Pro Mono Passive Direct Box combines premium sound circuitry with durable, roadworthy construction, providing high-quality solutions for line, instrument and speaker level signals. The MD1 Pro allows balanced lines to be sent from your instrument long distances without inducing noise.
Custom STLX Transformer
The MD1 Pro features Samson's STLX Mu-Metal shielded transformer that delivers an extended, flat frequency response with ultra-low distortion and superior protection against hum and RF interference. The MD1 Pro's balanced output provides a clean signal that is less susceptible to noise than an unbalanced line, allowing for longer cable runs. The MD1 Pro also includes a 3-position 0dB/-15dB/-30dB attenuation switch to toggle between line and speaker level signals.
The MD1 Pro's Thru jack enables you to tap off the signal from the input and pass the signal to an amplifier or monitor without affecting the original audio. This can eliminate the need for miking guitar amplifiers, which depending on your application may be preferable, especially as more musicians are using in-ear monitors.
Housed in a 14-guage noise-reducing steel chassis, the MD1 Pro is built to withstand the abuse of the most demanding live tours. Its rigid outer shell protects all the MD1 Pro's internal connections, switches and solder joints from failure, ensuring quiet, reliable performance.
