This is the first DI box I've been using.
I use 81/85 EMG's on guitar and also an active pickup on bass. The last one has an extremely high output, that no audio interface could handle (from those which I've been using: Avid FastTrack C400 and Focusrite Forte). The JDI handles both in excellent way. There is no any overload or distortion, just saturating when signal comes to it's highest levels. It all sound in a very musical way comparing to direct instrument input on audio interfaces.
I also tried the JDI before Axe FX II input and the bass sounded significantly better this way while the guitar sounded better without it.
The build quality seems to be very good.
'Ground' button is a very useful feature. It helps to cut off the noise while using tube amplifier and other devices like audio interface simultaneously.
I had not opportunity to compere the JDI with other DI boxes but nevertheless I'm very happy with it.

Superb Passive DI
bass_jam, 02.08.2017
I use the Radial JDI for recording bass and as DI on gigs.

Most of my basses are active some with a very high output which matches well with a passive DI. I have used other DI's from pedal board preamps and bass amps before but the Radial is definitely a step up and sounds less compressed. The signal has a very good dynamic range, not much colouring going on, a very low noise floor, it needs no powering and the Radial built like a tank.

Solid and awesome
Frednugent, 29.05.2019
I didn't know I needed this until I bought it. Now I'm runnign through it on almost all my tracks. Radial is a solid company from Canada making some of the most useful gear out there. This JDI is a classic. It's passive, so no power needed, it's built to last years, the sound it produces is warm and smooth, and the features on it are super useful. I just ran it from the output of my pedal board to the guitar amp and it sounds better with it in the chain then without. Also great for recording. Just tried a drum machine through it directly into DAW. Sounds great. I like this DI.

Good sound, inadequate merge function
03.05.2016
This would normally take 5 stars but one thing i wasn't too happy with was the merge function.I merge two acoustic guitars and when i set the output (preamp gain) of one guitar all the way down, then the second guitar's signal gets attenuated to a great degree. Pressing and depressing the button hardly gives any deference to this. Together with the JDI i purchased a palmer pan 01 pro which has exactly the same (input and thru = mix) function.... and works much better ON THAT function (not totally as a DI box).

Apart from that, sound is clear and totally transparent.
