      High-quality active interface for connecting instrument-, line-, or speaker-level signals to any balanced input.

      Powered by an internal 9-volt battery or via phantom power at the XLR output, the Xdirect Active Direct Box from ART features 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 also reduces computer noise artifacts when used as an interface between a computer-based audio workstation and monitors. Phase inversion switch reverses signal polarity at the source. The ART Xdirect has a stylish, compact, and durable chassis; input attenuator switches for a wide range of signal levels; and an input through jack for tapping off the signal chain. A ground lift switch lets you totally separate the input and output signal grounds, reducing hum and ground-loop noise.

      Great deal, works fine

      By Gary Snyder

      from in a house

      Comments about <em>ARTcessories Xdirect Professional Active Direct Box</em>:

      I've owned Countryman and other active DI's. I've used this live and it carries the Bass fine as well as keys. It is lightweight and small which is always a plus for live work. I glued some soft pad on the bottom to help keep it in place. For the 99% of us, this unit is great, half the size of a Beringer and a quarter the weight. CON: If you plan to back over the DI with a truck, buy something else. The buttons are not recessed so when packing, be smart.

      Darn those plastic jacks!

      By mrthebassplayer

      from Orofino, ID

      Comments about <em>ARTcessories Xdirect Professional Active Direct Box</em>:

      The ART ARTcessories Xdirect Professional Active Direct Box is a great concept with poor follow through. When they work they are a great value. The plastic jacks seem to break loose and then it becomes a pile of garbage. For the price I guess that is what you get. Good product. Bad plastic jacks.

      Comments about <em>ARTcessories Xdirect Professional Active Direct Box</em>:

      I used this box to run my bass directly into a pa and got decent results, and for running an acoustic into a speaker system WOW! This is a nice little unit, and I plan to continue using it. God Bless

      x-direct

      By SuperKris

      from Fairmont, WV

      Comments about <em>ARTcessories Xdirect Professional Active Direct Box</em>:

      I use this thing when my band plays at church or live, so that I don't have to bring my amp. It's a good DI, and it does exactly what it needs to: makes it possible for me to plug my bass directly into the house system.
