Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The case is sturdy aluminum with rounded corners and rubber feet which allow unit to rest or hang over on edge of angled surface without sliding off. The connectors, switches, and pots, were designed and built for long lasting service and appear to be of better than average durability
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
This passive direct box allows the user to convert from line level or low level through RCA and 1/4" phone jacks by moving a small micro-switch on the "Out" side of the box. The two separate potentiometers, one for each channel, allow the signal level to be attenuated to match the input sensitivity of the low impedance device the signal's routed to. There's also a single ground lift switch that affects both channels.

Worth the price for the utility it provides. I expect this device to not require service in the future as it appears to contain high quality components and is ruggedly constructed
