  1. Amazon Customer

    Came a defective product.
    The left balanced output signal is not coming. Some problem in the internal circuit of the piece. This is a defective item

    maybe too durable/heavy
    I did a good amount of research and as expected, this D.I. fills the gap the whirlwind imp 2 left. My only gripe is that it might be too heavy/bulky for what itactually does, weighs almost the same as the radial jdi. but if you’re looking for a super tough super durable imp 2, you will be very happy with this.

    Very high quality product, very satisfied
    I bought this box and Radial Engineering ProAV2 Stereo Direct Box, both are very good quality, and I am very satisfied with them. I had tried other cheap units, but they decreased the sound quality or they don’t remove the hum at an acceptable level. This unit removes hum from my tube preamp but maintains sound quality.I am using headphones like Arya Stealth, HD800S, LDC-X, and HEDD. Gaia + Terminator as the DAC.

    Great DI
    This is a good DI box. Built solid and passes the signal uncolored. I had to use the ground lift switch once and it worked great. No complaints.

    Confiable entrega
    The media could not be loaded.

     Perfecta y puntual entrega, recomendado

  6. Justin Garretson

    Great stereo DI
    I now own two of these, and will likely buy a third. Flexible inputs and outputs, built like a tank, and just works well.

    Samson Direct Box
    If you’re looking for a simple, passive DI solution for not a lot of money, this is your solution. This box is at the end of my signal chain on an acoustic guitar pedal board, and it changes/colors absolutely nothing in my guitar tone. It simply provides an easy way to get a balanced XLR out to the sound system. This one does what it says, and the price is right. No need to pay bunches more!

    Will never record without this little lady ever again
    This is a fantastic little piece of gear to have. I use this in between my guitar and audio interface when recording and the difference is night and day. An absolutely gorgeous clean signal comes out. Someone made a comment about how this is probably not good in the studio but I completely disagree. This little guy is the unsung hero of the studio. Tech specs are great and all, but at the end of the day it’s about how a track SOUNDS. And this baby sounds terrific. Great price too!

    Does what it’s suppose to do!
    i bought this for my podcast to limit the amount of cords i have for the setup and it worked really well! feels well built!

    Please dont waste your money on this product.
    This is just peice of waste which is not of any use. It just lower the gain and thats it. Which we can do with our instrument alone. Dont waste your money , I repeat.
