OVERVIEW

The Radial ProDI Passive Direct Box is a high-quality, passive direct box that employs a proprietary transformer for both impedance conversion and isolation. Linear from 20Hz-18kHz, with low distortion and virtually zero phase distortion makes it perfect for live or studio performances. Because of the transformer isolation, problems such as hum and buzz caused by ground loops are eliminated, making it very easy and hassle-free to use. The Radial ProDI features 1/4" thru/input, -15dB pad, and ground lift protected from damage by a protective front panel. Heavy-duty construction, baked enamel finish, and 600-ohm balanced output. 2-1/2" x 4-1/4".

Noise-free and very affordable!

    I picked up two of these because I was sick of those cheaper DI boxes causing issues. This thing is built to last. It is super high quality and heavy duty. It sounds great!

          Comments about Radial Engineering ProDI Passive Direct Box:

          We have seven of these Radial DI Boxes at church, and we just purchased two more. We tried many other brands but these are the best, but not perfect. We had one fail about a month ago. The ProDIs are rugged and very quiet with good connectors and a baked-on exterior paint that is hard to scratch. It has a padded bottom and rounded corners. It couldn't be much better.

              Great unit. I use this to plug my bass into our church PA system. Preceding it is an array of effects pedals. The end sound is very clean. Well worth the price..

              Took the mike off my amp, put through the pa and a fender acoustasonic 90 as a monitor. Have a gibson j-200 and an old martin 12-28 both with active pickups. The hassle is gone and the sound is great. Wish I had done this a long time ago.

              This is a great unit at 1/2 to 1/3 the price of comparable products. No sound coloration & all the extras you expect in a quality DB. Been using them under heavy touring for years

                This product is easy to use and sounds good. I didn't expect a reduction in volume when played through this devise, but it did not impact my recording.

                  Comments about Radial Engineering ProDI Passive Direct Box:

                  When I perform at older venues that have antique electrical wiring, no matter how good they try and clear up the signal, humm and sometimes static from the outmoded and worn electrical lines wreck the ability to get the subtle nuances of my acoustic guitars through their PA system.
                  This RADIAL DI answers a LOT of those issues immediately without sacrificing too much high end
                  signal.
