BEST price/performance ratio!
ctwj, 19.02.2014
Hi customer! The LD Systems LDI 02 is "inspired" by the BSS AR-133 active-DI-Box. The BSS is to expensive for me in my little home studio. So i tried some other products:

- this one
- Palmer PAN 02
- Behringer Ultra-DI
- ART XDirect

The Palmer PAN 02 and the LDI 02 sounds equal, the ART and the Behringer similiar. I prefer the LDI 02, because of the price. The switches are really stable and are noiseless while switching. Furthermore the LDI02 has enough own weight to stay on its position while laying on my desk! The connectors are from good quality as well. In comparison with the ART and Behringer the feel, switches and the manufaction wins at all!

The battery box can be opened and closed without tools. Good for the live-situation without 48V-phantom-power-mixer. A status LED is telling you, whether the power came from the battery (LED is flashing) or from phantom-power (LED on).

Nice sounding (minimal colouration) and in general an uncomplicated product!

Good DI for sporadical use
Johan SpinOff, 28.12.2019
I spent a lot of time searching for a DI that's not too expensive but delivers OK sound. This is the one.

When I first received them (I bought two simultaneously) there was a defect on one of them. Thomann didn't hesitate to replace it. Since then, no problems to speak off.

I use these DI's for keyboards and on my SPD-SX. Sometimes Bass, Acoustic guitar or even my self-build sub-kick.
I never had an issue with the sound quality for my (non-professional) use.

Pros:
- Cheap alternative to the BSS DI on which the design is based
- Handles many sound sources with a very acceptable quality.

Cons:
- The defective unit that I received puts a bit of hesitation on it related to consistency and reliability

Stevige, goede DI
Seshet the Mad, 04.07.2019
Deze DI lijkt wel heel veel op een niet-nader genoemde andere DI die zowat de industriestandaard is. Functioneert ook net hetzelfde. Enige verschil is de kleur en vooral de prijs.

20 db pad, earth lift en link zijn 3 factoren die deze DI zo goed maken ten opzichte van andere, simpelere DI's binnen dezelfde prijsklasse.

Ik heb 2 van deze LDI 02 en ik gebruik ze zowel in de studio als live, kapot zal je ze niet krijgen.

Heel veel audio interfaces hebben een (dedicated) instrumenten jack input. Dat maakt volgens sommigen een DI overbodig bij het direct opnemen van bv elektrische gitaar. Niets is echter minder waar: een actieve DI zoals deze, wanneer voorzien van +48 volt phantom power, is echt een meerwaarde voor je signaal.

Beestig ding voor heel weinig geld!

The excellent missing link on stage!
Jostein C, 14.12.2014
On stage, I use a Line 6 POD HD500X which have two XLR's out (stereo) and two line outs (mono) and I normally use a "the box" PA M 12 ECO MKII (often paired with a PA M 12 ECO MKII) monitoring duties. Here is the deal:

On stage, I will normally have mono out to both my monitors and the PA system/mixer in house. My HD500X patches are in stereo and I don't want to make mono versions of them.

So what I do is feeding the mono signal to the LDI 02, which is splitting the signal unchanged to my monitors and converted to a microphone level balanced signal for the Mixer/PA. Very simple and efficient! One more very common but very usable thing is that the LDI 02 normally is phantom powered by the mixer, but if the phantom power is down, then the battery inside the DI box kicks in automatically.

So the LDI 02 makes my live rig complete and I can always connect wherever I am. This little thing is one of the best and usable buys I've done lately. Strongly recommended!
