Behringer Ultra DI DI100 Active Direct Box
Ultra DI DI100: the ultimate, active solution to all your DI problems!
The Behringer Ultra DI is an active direct box that can be powered by either a 9V battery or phantom power from your mixer. The Ultra can accept both 1/4-inch and XLR unbalanced signals and convert them to a full frequency (10Hz-93kHz), balanced signal on an XLR output.
Two -20dB switches (-40dB max. input attenuation) provide for an extraordinary operating range from a low level guitar signal to a high power amplifier output. The Ultra DI also features a ground lift switch and 1/4-inch Link Output for an unbalanced connection to monitor or guitar amp input.

You can even connect a guitar amp's speaker output with up to 3,000 Watts. No sweat.
Active power without limits
Contrary to passive DI boxes, the active Ultra DI DI100 sets no limits regarding varying or mismatched impedance. How? The signal is buffered by a high-quality amplifier. What does this mean to you? You get a clean, pure, powerful signal, which is immune to interference and therefore free of noise and hum – even with extremely long cables. The renowned Behringer OT-1 transformer ensures absolutely linear frequency response and ultra-low distortion, especially in the low end. The audio specifications speak for themselves: linear frequency response from 10 Hz to 50 kHz, S/N ratio of -102 dBu and THD <0.005% at 1 kHz. We dare you to compare the DI100 with any other DI box available.
