OVERVIEW

Eight-channel Pro DI.

The pure Class-A DI in Phoenix Audio’s DRS Series Mic Preamps is at the heart of the 2-channel half-rack Nice DI. With its unique gain architecture, Phoenix's N-Eight 8-Channel DI offers a wide array of tones, such that working with a direct signal takes on the artistry we tend to associate only with working with miked signals.

Pure Class-A Tone at Input
The Nice DIs are built around a fully discrete Class-A circuit design, all hand-wired with military-grade silver connections into rugged and portable steel boxes. Its transformerless, electronically balanced, ultra-high impedance (10Mohm) input stage assures your signals are delivered into the circuit in their full glory. No treble roll-off or sluggish bass response. Instead, you'll hear the full-bodied, punchy sounds necessary for delivering the powerful and complex, signals of modern music.

Versatile Transformer-Balanced Output
The output stage of the Nice DIs uses Phoenix Audio's renowned DSOP-2, an all discrete output amp based on head designer Dave Rees's infamous TF1 amp (which he developed for use in vintage Neve modules). With its custom-wound DB694 transformer and enormous headroom, the DSOP-2 can be driven to taste. Deliver more gain to achieve a beautifully saturated sound, back off for a cleaner, hi-fi sound, or choose any flavor in between. And because the Nice DI can accept line level, you can use it anywhere a line-amp is necessary. With an easily recalled stepped gain control on every channel, dialing in your exact sound is simple.
