Radial Engineering

Connect your iPod, laptop, or CD player to a console's balanced XLR inputs without noise or possible damage from phantom power.

The Radial ProAV2 is a passive direct box specifically developed with the audio-video integrator in mind. It has full two-channel stereo functionality.

To eliminate the need for various adaptor, a "Swiss Army" array of connections are provided, including 1/4" for instruments, RCA and 1/8" connectors for consumer electronics and computers, and a +4dB XLR input for professional systems. Front panel connectors can also be used as thru-puts to allow multiple patch points.

Custom wound transformers are employed, which are able to withstand exceptionally hot levels while maintaining linearity from 20Hz to 18.5kHz. The resulting smooth Bessel curve is warm and natural, making the ProAV2 Passive DI box particularly adept at handling digital sources that can sound harsh. Transformer isolation adds the benefit of eliminating ground loops that cause audio hum and buzz and video hum bars or snow.

    Comments about Radial Engineering ProAV2 Stereo Direct Box:

    Radial products are great, and this is no exception. I bought this specifically to connect my iPad to snakes. It works just as it should. As a plus, it can also function as two mono DI's.

    NOTE: This has no "built-in stereo to mono merge function". Musician's Friend advertises this on their website, and told me over chat that this function exists. It does not. I just ran it though some tests, and there is no way to sum two mono input signals into a single XLR mono out. I even double-checked by contacting Radial, and they confirmed that is not a feature of this DI. Radial makes other DI's that have this feature, but it's not included with this product. I still give this 5 stars, because the error is on the part of Musician's Friend, not Radial.

      Once again Radial is the bomb. This is a great DI with support for RCA and 3.5mm TRS. We use it for our computer interface and they work great and sound fantastic.
