Behringer DI20

Active 2-Channel DI boxActive 2-Channel DI-Box / Splitter, with whose help signals with high impedance - e.g. from guitars and basses - can be connected directly to a mixer or recording system.

The ULTRA-DI DI20 is a one-of-a-kind DI (Direct Injection) box that can convert up to two separate, unbalanced ¼ " TRS lines into two balanced XLR outputs. It also offers a 2-channel / link mode for flexible use as a mono-, 2-channel box or splitter. In link mode, channel 1 can be output simultaneously via the two balanced XLR outputs as well as via an unbalanced jack (6.3 mm). The 3-position input attenuator can accommodate input levels of up to +48 dBu and a "Ground Lift" switch eliminates ground loops. The power supply can either be done with a battery (9 V) or with phantom power (48 V).

  • Jack input
  • XLR Out
  • -20 / 40dB PAD (up to 3000 W)
  • Operable via battery (9V) or phantom (15-52V)
  • With the ground switch ground loop can be eliminated
  • Battery-off switchable
  • Additional Split mode (channel 1 assigns signal to both XLR outputs)
  • In link mode Channel 2 outputs the signal from channel 1 balanced
  • Robust housing

Versatile little box

Roshan, 06.03.2014
This little box from Behringer is a very handy addition to the home studio, mobile record rig or stage setup.

I have 2 of these and use them for live gig recordings with my mobile rig where I often don't know what I'm going to encounter until I arrive. These little boxes are very versatile and allow me to connect a wide range of instruments to my recording interface via balanced connections for best low noise performance with long cable runs.

For example, I've used them as classic DI boxes, to insert between instrument and amplifier and to simultaneously take a balanced line level output out to the interface, I've used a single unit to feed an unbalanced stereo output from a keyboard into twin balanced XLR inputs. I've used them to interface with a drum machine via the headphone output (the drum machines' main outs were broken).

They are powered via phantom power from the XLR connection or via 9V battery. You can connect instrument amplifier speaker outputs to them and use the inbuilt attenuator to match the signal. Other features include a ground lift, and the ability to use as either a twin channel single in single out DI box, or a single channel box with single in, multiple out.

Compact and lightweight, they seem rugged enough in day to day use, no issues with noise or build quality, and of course, excellent value.

To sum up, don't be put off by cheap reputation these are very versatile little tools and very competitively priced.

Decent DI for the money

08.12.2014
I bought 2 of these DI's for radio outside broadcasts of live music events and studio recording applications and they've worked amazing for both.

The double DI is really useful for live settings where we need to attenuate a hot signal. I've generally used them between the feed from DJ's into our broadcast mixing desk.

I've also used these classically for live concerts and studio recordings, for directly inputting an electric, acoustic, bass guitar or keys into the desk. You can set the DI to act in 2 channel mode (so you get 2 DI's for the price. Although you can only set an attenuation that applies for both at the same time) or in single channel mode, where you get a 1/4" jack output which is perfect to go into an amplifier on stage for monitoring etc.

Even used these to connect a phone/mp3 directly into an active speaker when no mixer has been available!

They're phantom powered via a mixing desk. Or when phantom power is unavailable, 9v battery powered with an on/off switch. There's a red LED that illuminates when power is received, which is really helpful to check you have an initial connection to the desk in the event of issues during an event.

Overall, don't be put off by the low price. Really good product at a great price point. Can't recommend it enough!
