General Your general opinion of this product. I was experiencing some hum and buzz in my 1/4" patchbay that I finally traced to my MPC 2000XL. I was under the previous assumption that the MPC had balanced TRS out but I was wrong. After adding the JDI Duplex in between not only is the impedance matched but I have a balanced signal that I can feed into my pre amp of choice. I no longer experience the annoying 60Hz noise. I plan on purchasing another one of these for my Roland XV-3080 soon. Love it! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I'm using this for home studio use but I could see how this would have no problem on stage. The thing is built like a tank - and heavy! It also contains very high quality Jensen transformers which apparently are highly sought after. Ease of Use How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be? Virtually plug and play. High impedance instrument in to low impedance balanced mic out. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? There are a variety of other features such as ground lift, phase reverse, 15dB pad as well as the option to feed +4dBu signals such as a CD or DAT player and have it then come out mic level. Also instrument thru as well. Sound How is the tone? The sound is absolutely transparent. What you put in is what you get out. With that being said I would imagine you could "color" the sound slightly by pushing the transformers a bit by feeding more gain on the inputs but I have not heard a huge difference upon doing so thus far. (Just my personal observation)
