Simply the best phantom powered active DI!

TrEr, 12.10.2017
I got the PZ-DI because I needed an active, piezo-friendly and phantom powered DI for my double bass. I also own a lot of other DIs, active, passive, tubes, transformers, including other Radial models like JDI, J48, JDV.

The PZ-DI is simply the best phantom powered DI I've ever used. It's basically a J48 with added functions. When the PZ-DI is set for 220 k-ohms it will sound EXACTLY like the J48. The only missing feature from the J48 is the merge function but the PZ-DI adds a lot of other features that the J48 doesn't have:

-Selectable load, including a piezo-friendly 10 megaohm.

-Sweepable hi-pass filter.

-3 kHz low-pass filter.

-Switchable buffer/amplifier for piezos.

The PZ-DI is only slightly more expensive than the classic J48 and with all the extra features I think it is one of the best bargains in DIs out there. Sure, there are other DIs I like even better but they all require an extra power supply which isn't always convenient. There are also many applications where I prefer passive DIs but for an active, phantom powered DI you can't do much better than the Radial PZ-DI. Even if I never used piezos I would still prefer it over the J48 because of all the added features.

It is also built like a tank like all Radial products. I would have absolutely no hesitations about touring with it, and that's something I can't say about most music equipment manufactured these days.

HIGHLY recommended!!!

very uesful

Georgios S., 25.01.2016
I can use this D.I. with my passive Fender Precision, my active Musicman stingray and my double bass which has a ultra high impedence piezzo. That's the reason I bought it, and that's exactly what it does!
