Studiospares Active DI Box

The Studiospares active DI box provides you with the facility of converting an unbalanced input to a balanced input. Engineers and musicians regularly use this product to connect guitars in to a professional audio system, as well as DJ outputs. This active DI box is able to accept bass, DJ outputs, keyboards and both electric and acoustic guitars.

Bassists will be happy to find that this direct input box also includes a link output, so they can send a clean signal to the front of house, whilst also using their bass amplifier on stage for their foldback. Other symptoms that this box will help cure are hums, ground loops and overloarding.

    Brilliant build quality for its price! Sturdy and does exactly what it should. The battery holder is a little flimsy, however the features are great for the price.

    One of our Church's guitarists plugged in to the DI box and heard - nothing; which was far nicer than the 'orrible 'um he'd had the week before. Excellent.

    Simple to use. Great for taking ground hum out of mic, drum relay's etc

    This was suggested to me by a musician friend. I bought two to try them at a gig and they worked just as well as I had expected. If you have phantom power then don't fit a battery as it's not obvious what is powering it. After only one gig it's not an extensive test but it seems to do the same as more expensive DI's.

    On stage; big and small venues. It is always quiet. I had thought that with only one pad it would be a bit limited in some situations but it's been fine to date. Last gig had a pint of (nice) beer dropped on it - it didn't even blink.

    Using this as part of a live sound set-up where we have a variety of low and high quality pick-ups. Tested this using a fender mandolin with single coil which has always caused problems. It produced a clear and decent level at the mixer gain stage (about 1/4 to 1/3). Solid and heavier than Behringer equilivent and rumoured to be based on BSS equivilent. Only one slight negative point is that the power switch controls power from battery and phantom power but this is not a major issue. Packaging and delivery were great.

    Use it to DI just about everything I can. Noise results in very hot signals so the pad in this is useful too. Simple, easy and works great.
