I bought it for my recording studio good while ago and already recorded a number of instruments using it. This is doing exactly what it should do without adding any colour to the sound. It's also very quiet and I haven't noticed any noise from it at all. It's built like a tank and it got all features you could expect from much more expensive DI-Box. The only criticism I can think off could be about the battery compartment which is difficult to access but it doesn't bother me at all as I use phantom power which works very well. I would recommend it to anyone that needs good active DI-Box for both live and studio applications. This is a serious, professional, quality product at very good price.
I've been using one of these almost weekly (live gigs) for 6 years and it's still working perfectly. It has all the features you're likely to need, and there's very little difference in sound quality between this and my Radial DI's, certainly not enough to be relevent in a live setting.
My one criticism would be that the battery cover is very badly designed- it is infuriatingly fiddly to slot it back in properly, and the screw, which is not fixed to the cover disappeared a long time ago.
Not much you can really say about a DI box, with it's primary use being to connect something to something else audio related.
Well you can't really go wrong with this. With ground lift switches and db boost you can guarantee that your sound will get there without any additional unwanted noise.
Being able to input by XLR or by 1/4 inch jack gives you flexibility in your input means.
Output wise it's pretty cool because the XLR socket can receive phantom power meaning you won't need a battery to run this if you're connecting to a desk or some other device. Fear not if you aren't because a 9v battery will solve your needs otherwise.
Great piece of kit, useful for local bands trying to make their sets dynamic.
Obviously, this DI box is designed to be reminiscent of a particular industry standard DI box, and although costing a fraction of the price of the other product, it performs nearly as well, I own several and use many more in the line of work. They are workhorses and usually sound very good, perfectly clear and hard to make them distort. They are however not the best built things ever, and I have seen a few with broken battery covers or broken connectors, although these units are used in heavy duty touring, which takes its toll on everything, all in all they are a very good buy, and its always good to have a couple of spares in the box for those 'oh no' moments,
Tested this DI through my audio interface and works great. The signal from my guitar went to the DI and then to the audio interface and there was no coloration of the sound whatsoever. All the features are great and work properly, though I didn't notice any difference between Lifted and Grounded signals, but that only means that I wasn't having any ground problems to start with. The unit works properly with the phantom power from my audio interface. It's also built to last, feels and looks solid and the rubber keep it where you want it to be. Highly recommended.
