          very good product at a reasonable price

          By Kirk

          from undisclosed

          Comments about IMP 2 Standard Direct Box:

          I did an A/B comparison and find this product to be very good regarding sound quality.

          We tested three instruments with the following setup: the instrument was plugged into a Morley A/B box, with one output going into a high-Z input of a Mackie powered mixer (Mackie PPM608), and the other output going into the Whirlwind IMP 2 Standard Direct Box, which fed one of the XLR inputs of the Mackie powered mixer. This way we could quickly switch between ¼" directly into high-Z, and the DI box, and play the same measures of music over and over to get a good comparison.

          The Mackie feeds Electro Voice SX100 speakers in a small venue that seats about 80 people.

          The instruments were 1) a Kala UBass, which is a version that has a passive pickup under the saddle (no battery, no EQ) 2) a mountain dulcimer with a passive saddle pickup, and 3) a Cordoba tenor ukulele with a K&K Aloha Twin pickup.

          We had four listeners, and the room was otherwise empty.

          The listeners could tell no difference in the sound quality or the volume of the UBass and the mountain dulcimer. The sound was louder for the tenor uke through the DI box. After we adjusted the volume to match, the listeners could tell no difference in the sound quality on the tenor uke, either.

          I therefore recommend this product. It appears to be rugged, and the sound quality was very good on the three instruments tested.

          It solves our problem at a reasonable price. We only have two high-Z inputs into our mixer, but six XLR inputs. This DI box enables us to plug instruments into the XLR inputs.

          So far, so good. Nice small footprint and haven't had any issues with it. Use it every week to gig at church, usually velcro'd on my pedalboard.

          There is not a better passive DI out there. Unless you want to pay more for the same sound.
