OVERVIEW

Super affordable, super effective, and super flexible!

The Zdirect Professional Passive Direct Box is a high-quality interface that lets you connect instrument, line, or speaker-level signals to a mixer or other balanced input through a high-performance audio isolation transformer. The high-impedance, single-ended 1/4" input is converted by the transformer into an isolated balanced low-impedance signal output. Extremely flat and wide frequency response with high signal level handling. The ART Zdirect delivers clean and neutral sound with a wide variety of signal sources and over long signal runs in otherwise high-noise , live sound environments.

FEATURES
  • High-quality passive interface
  • Connect instrument, line, or speaker level signals to balanced input
  • High impedance single-ended 1/4" input
  • Isolated balanced low impedance signal output
  • Flat and wide frequency response

High-quality, rugged, and affordable enhancement for any studio or live sound system. At this price, you don't even have to think about it. Just put it in the cart.

Our band uses these in the studio and on stage. The line through allows a nice clean signal to the recording interface or to the sound man on the XLR output and a jumper to the amp for on-stage sound. Gets rid of that single coil pick-up hum and allows the acoustic guitars to sound nice and warm with good tone. Keeps things simple in the studio at practice. I own 3 passive and one powered. They have all been working well for over 3 years. Compact and self-contained with no batteries to worry about. With ground lift, and pads for signal control you can't ask for more. Great product !

Watch out!!! I have owned this DI box for less than 2 months and it just quit working. I take care of all of my gear. This DI went from the floor in front of me to my bag. Used once a week and it quit working.

    Comments about ARTcessories Zdirect Professional Passive Direct Box:

    Our church has gone through quite a few high end and high priced direct boxes. I needed to replace 2 10 year old units that failed recently. Seeing the price of these thought I would take a chance on them. I am not disappointed. Extra features not found on most and very quite running. They appear very durable.

      Comments about ARTcessories Zdirect Professional Passive Direct Box:

      I have the version of this DI box that has dual inputs and outputs. Its the best value on the market. I own a recording and rehearsal studio and have been using this for about 4 months since the date of this review and its worked like a charm. Simple to use just plug in your unbalanced source and it converts to balanced with no coloration at all, sounds beautiful especially on keyboards. The build quality is terrific it has a nice weight to it and is rock solid, I would definitely buy a couple more.

          You don't have to use your guitar or bass amp. Just plug your guitar or Bass into the DI and your mixer and you can do most anything.

              This DI is very good for the money. The housing is solid. I like being able to pick it up and not be afraid to break it. Still not sure what the filter button does but its a good little budget DI.

              Great little DI box for short money

              By Twang Bar King

              from Boston MA

              Comments about ARTcessories Zdirect Professional Passive Direct Box:

              I was looking for a decent quality, low-cost passive DI box, and this unit was just the ticket. I've always been happy with ART products, and this passive DI box is no exception. More features than any other passive DI box in its price range, and it used a decent quality transformer that's dead quiet and quite musical. Sounded great on an old Guild acoustic-electric guitar.
              No other unit in this price range has the same features. Has 2 pads, 1/4" "thru" output, a noise filter, and a ground lift. I don't know what else you could possibly need/expect in a passive DI.
              Dead quiet, and built like a tank. No plastic - an all metal housing.
              Best deal around - believe me, I checked out just about every low-cost option, and this was the best value (quality/features vs. price) that I could find.

              I bought this for Church a couple months ago and let the guitarist play while I switched out this di box with another equally priced di box (apex ADP1 PASSIVE DIRECT BOX) and both us us much prefer the this one....and its got a couple of extra features so thats a bonus!
