CAT: DUAL RDB
23 Apr 12
Dual re-amping direct box
Review: The Dual RDB is the ideal interface solution for any application where stereo or dual line level signals from recording interfaces, computers, mixers, iPods, consumer audio or video machines need to be connected to XLR microphone or 1/4" instrument level inputs.
The unit has 2 x high quality isolation transformers that prevent ground loops when connecting various systems together.
The Dual RDB accepts 1/4" TRS and XLR line level inputs and outputs mic or instrument levels. The Dual RDB's variable level controls allow volume control to be set at the source rather than in the studio, AV room, audio closet or installation rack. A 20Hz to 20 kHz frequency response ensures the Dual RDB will function transparently with any high quality audio source.

Active interface for connecting instrument, line, or speaker level signals to any balanced input, comes with super quality battery
Review: The Xdirect is a high quality interface that lets you connect instrument, line, or speaker level signals to a mixer or other balanced input. The high impedance single-ended 1/4" and XLR inputs are buffered and converted, by very low noise active electronics, into an isolated balanced low impedance signal source. The Xdirect has an extremely flat and wide frequency response and can handle high signal levels while still maintaining an isolated balanced low impedance output. This gives the Xdirect a very clean and neutral sound with a wide variety of signal sources and over long signal runs in high noise environments.
The input attenuator switches allow for a wide range of signal levels and the input link jack allows for tapping off of your signal chain. The ground lift switch lets you totally separate the input and output signal grounds, when appropriate, to isolate 2 systems, thereby reducing hum and ground-loop noise.
What further sets the Xdirect apart from other Active DI boxes are its extended features and versatility. ART have added a switchable low pass filter that cuts out all very high frequency interference. This bessel filter on the input is placed out of the audio range and is primarily intended to reduce radio frequency interference before it gets into the main system. The filter is also very effective in reducing any digital computer noise artifacts when using the Xdirect as an interface between a computer based audio workstation and your monitors.
A phase invert switch, while not normally included with your run of the mill D.I. box, has been added to allow you to switch signal polarity right at the source. This feature is especially handy when you are combining a direct tap with a microphone feed in the mix.
The Xdirects active circuitry is powered by an internal 9V battery, when external power is not available. In this mode it draws 3.5 ma which should give you more than 250 hours of operation off of a new battery. If phantom power is available, then the Xdirect will automatically draw its power from the external source. The battery on/off switch lights dim when the unit is running off of the battery, lights brightly when it is running off of phantom power, and is off when the unit is inactive.
The compact black anodized all aluminum case and it's flexible power design allow the Xdirect to provide years of trouble free service in live sound, permanent/fixed install, DJ, and virtually any PA application. It's full feature set, rugged construction, and high-end specifications make the Xdirect the obvious choice whenever you have to interface high impedance sources with a low noise balanced system.

Passive interface lets you connect instrument, line, or speaker level signals to a mixer or other balanced input thru an audio isolation transformer
Review: The Zdirect is a high quality totally passive interface that lets you connect instrument, line, or speaker level signals to a mixer or other balanced input thru a high performance audio isolation transformer. The high impedance single-ended 1/4" input is converted by the transformer into an isolated balanced low impedance signal source. The Zdirect's audio transformer has an extremely flat and wide frequency response and can handle high signal levels while still maintaining an isolated balanced low impedance output. This gives the Zdirect a very clean and neutral sound with a wide variety of signal sources and over long signal runs in high noise environments.
The input attenuator switches allow for a wide range of signal levels and the input thru jack allows for tapping off of your signal chain. The ground lift switch lets you totally separate the input and output signal grounds, when appropriate, to isolate 2 systems, thereby reducing hum and ground-loop noise.
What further sets the Zdirect apart from other DI boxes are its extended features and versatility. ART have added a switchable low pass filter that cuts out all very high frequency interference. This Bessel filter on the output is placed out of the audio range and is primarily intended to reduce radio frequency interference before it gets into the main system. The filter is also very effective in reducing any digital computer noise artifacts when using the Zdirect as an interface between a computer-based audio workstation and your monitors.

Active DI box powered by batter or phantom power
Review: With the DI100, you can rest assured that your sound source will reach the console balanced and noise free. Behringer's take on the all important active DI box gives you functionality, durability and incredible sound at a remarkable price.
Plug into the DI100's balanced 1/4" TRS or XLR input, then send a signal to your console via the balanced XLR output. You can even plug your guitar or bass amp's speaker output into the DI100, which can handle ratings of up to 3,000 Watts and still deliver a perfect signal. It also features a 1/4" link jack to send your signal to an on stage amplifier.
The DI100 also has a switchable attenuation pad, allowing input levels of up to +50dB. There is also a ground lift switch to eliminate noise associated with ground loops. The DI100 also features Behringer's renowned OT-1 output transformer.

Passive DI box with impedance and signal matching
Review: The Ultra DI DI600P is a passive DI (direct injection) box for connecting a guitar, bass or keyboard directly to your mixer. With the DI600P as your go between, impedance matching problems become a thing of the past, and long cable runs will not sacrifice all of your precious tone.
With its parallel 1/4" in and out jacks, Behringer's DI600P allows you to plug in your instrument and send the same signal to your onstage amplifier, while the XLR Output sends a balanced signal to your mixer. A ground lift switch eliminates hum associated with ground loops and our high performance transformer provides the ultimate in signal integrity.
Just flip the Inst/Amp switch and the DI600P can easily accommodate either the low level signal of a high impedance mic or guitar (inst mode), or the speaker output of a guitar amplifier (amp mode). Even if your amp cranks out as much as 3,000 Watts, you get a perfect signal every time!

8 channel, rack mountable, active DI box
Review: The Behringer Ultra DI Pro DI800 is a professional mains/phantom powered 8 channel active DI box. If you need a rack mountable DI unit with enough inputs to accommodate everyone on stage or in the studio, plug into the DI800.
Direct Injection (DI) boxes make it possible to connect guitars, basses and keyboards (as well as other line level devices) to audio mixers and recorders. They are absolutely essential for proper impedance matching and to maintain signal integrity. Behringer active DIs feature "buffered" inputs that won't degrade the source signal like passive DI boxes can. Balanced signals leaving the DI800 are extremely low impedance (typically less than 680 ohms), and far less susceptible to noise and interference.
When it comes right down to it, all DI boxes do the same thing, right? Yes, but the DI800 does much more than just "bass guitar in, mic level signal out." It really is a highly versatile input signal toolkit.
Here are just two special features that differentiate the DI800 from most standard DI boxes:
- You'd like to connect your guitar amp's speaker output to your mixer? Not a problem, the DI800 features a -30dB attenuation switch, allowing you to connect to speaker outputs (up to 3,000 Watts!) and convert them to balanced XLR outs.
- Got a weak incoming signal? The DI800 has a +20dB switch, which really comes in handy for boosting low-level input signals.
Of course, the DI800 provides a link output for easy connection to other equipment, such as onstage amplifiers and monitor consoles. Servo balanced performance guarantees ultra flat frequency response, and the gold plated XLR output connectors provide reliable, low noise operation. Per channel ground lift switches eliminate ground loop hum problems. The DI800 does everything a standalone DI can do - times eight!
Unlike their passive counterparts, active DI boxes require a power source to make their internal electronics work. The DI800 provides two power options: 120 - 240 V~ from the nearest wall outlet or power strip, or 18 to 48V DC from your mixer's phantom power supply.

Battery/phantom powered DI box with guitar cabinet emulation
Review: Whether you're recording or on stage, you need a great DI (direct injection) box to get your guitar sound to the console with full dynamics and power. The Ultra G GI100 active DI box gives you all the full rock glory of a cranked 4x12 cabinet at a fraction of the weight and floor space.
The Behringer GI100 works like a standard DI box. You can use it to tap into your amplifier's speaker outputs, even high powered rigs with ratings of up to 3,000 Watts. Or, just plug your guitar directly into the GI100, switch on the realistic 4x12 cabinet simulation designed by renowned engineer Juergen Rath, and you've got rock royalty sized tone in a package the size of a cheeseburger! You may never mic your speakers again!
The DI100 sounds amazing, and it comes equipped to meet the most common needs of gigging and recording, as well as the travel in between. There's a ground lift switch that eliminates typical ground loop problems, and when phantom power is connected, this DI box automatically shuts off the internal battery. The DI100 is housed in cool looking red aluminum and features stackable, oversized rubber corners.
The DI100 goes way beyond the typical abilities of a DI box to give you the sound and performance you'd expect from a super charged vintage half stack, plus enough power to have your audience wondering where you hid the amp. Introduce your axe to the guitar loving DI100.
