Product Description

The Behringer DI20 is perfect for musicians, contractors & engineers.
The ULTRA-DI DI20 is an innovative active 2-channel DI-box/splitter that takes the signal directly from an unbalanced high-impedance output—like an electric guitar—and feeds it directly into a mixing console or recorder. The DI20 converts 2 separate unbalanced 1/4-inch jack inputs into 2 balanced XLR outputs. There is a 2-channel/link mode for flexible usage as mono, 2-channel or splitter box. In link mode, channel 1 can be split up into 2 balanced XLR connectors plus 1 unbalanced 1/4-inch jack connector. Switchable input attenuation in 3 ranges allows input levels of up to +48 dBu, while a ground lift switch eliminates typical ground loop problems. It operates either by using a 9 V battery or by using 48 V phantom power. The whole package is enclosed in an ultra compact, road-suitable and extremely rugged housing.

I love this little box!
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I really don't know what I would do with out this direct box, I use it to send the monitor line out to active speakers and it works like a charm. I tried a few other passive di boxes with no luck. Every thing I try works best with this di...I think I should get another one...the only thing is, you need to remember to turn in on... but the battery lasts for years.
