Good value for money

Matthieu18, 24.09.2012
This handy rack allows you to have its 4 DI's on a single slot with a sound quality more than correct.
The least, however, are:
- the fact that the power supply can not come from the console, so it must be connected to the mains with its own power supply.
- there is not on this rack of link to the format jack which would allow to have its own return, on stage for example. The parallel output is present but in XLR format.

Highly recommendable, convincing concept

24.03.2017
Who does not know this: Many instruments / effectors offer only an unbalanced (unbalanced) output on the stage side. On the way through an analog multicore one inevitably catches a lot of interfering signals. Go to the hair. The solution on the stage: symmetry.
Often, the stage units also offer different levels, or can be connected to the mixer only at the line or mic input. Extremely unpleasant. The solution also here on the stage on the stage: level adjustment, ideal in combination with the symmetry.
Depending on the network or the cable used, rumble loops occur. Annoying. The solution can be: Groundlift.
In the search for remedy of these usual stage problems I am on the PAN 08 by Palmer pushed. It is a 19 inch device 1U made of solid, cleanly processed steel sheet, has 4 completely separated inputs and outputs (!), Is therefore four active (!) "DI boxes".
Circuitry: For XLR or stereo input on the input, this remains symmetrical, with a monocable the input is automatically unbalanced. Class! The two XLR outputs (one each front and rear) are balanced in each case. Problem 1 solved.
At the rear of the device, there are 4 pressure switches each, which attenuate the individual output signals by 20 dB, if one has to line the MIC input on the mixer. Conversely, you can raise the signal by 6 dB, 12dB or 18dB at the front of the unit from the combination of 2 pushbuttons. Problem 2 checked off. Of course, an additional ground lift button also separates the input from the output mass. Problem 3.
The technical data are absolutely convincing according to the supplied measurement chart: frequency response from 20Hz to 20kHz topfeben, distortion factor equal to zero and noise spectrum (active, open input (!)) Clearly below -120 dB. Hats off. This is probably made possible by the built-in high-quality transformers.
The sound is absolutely neutral for my feeling and free of any noise. I now have 3 devices on the stage, which are installed in a flat 19 "case.
The price sounds quite proud at the first moment, but is quickly relativized again, considering that you can purchase 4 absolutely high quality DI boxes.
If you can handle the 19 "solution, I can recommend the PAN 08 really good conscience.
