ART DTI - Dual Input Inline Transformer/Isolator Box with Balanced and Unbalanced Connectors

B&H # ARDTI Mfr # DTI

Free Expedited Shipping
You Pay: $60.00

The DTI (Dual Transformer/Isolater) from ART is a high quality, totally passive audio interface that uses a pair of high performance transformers to totally separate input and output signal grounds, thereby isolating two systems and reducing hum and ground-loop noise.

The unit's audio transformers have an extremely flat and wide frequency response and can handle high signal levels while maintaining an isolated balanced output. This gives the DTI a very clean and neutral sound with a wide variety of signal sources. The transformers are wound for 1:1 unity gain and are designed to be used with impedances from 600 Ω to 100k Ω.

Versatility

Useful for making a "clean" interface between a computer based audio workstation and a speaker system, isolation on long cable runs in a fixed installation, isolation of a signal source from any recording equipment, or in many cases, just a safer connection between two audio systems.

Connectivity

Provides XLR, 1/4" phone and RCA type phono connections on all inputs and outputs. This allows the unit to easily fit into virtually any audio system and be the clean patch point between all types of systems.

Construction

A compact black anodized, all aluminum case and passive design allow the DTI to provide years of trouble free service in Live Sound, Permanent/Fixed Install, D.J. and virtually any PA application.

              Comments about ART DTI - Transformer/Isolator:

              It looks great and it has RCA, but, do not waste your time or money. Spend the extra ten bucks and get the Ebtech HE-2-XLR and buy the converters. Why? Because it does eliminate much of the hum, but adds a squirlly noise on the high end. I bought both this and the Ebtech HE-2-XLR at the same time because there were no good reviews so I thought I would buy both and compare. I returned the DTI and bought another Ebtech. Please don't try and be cheap, spend the few extra dollars and save yourself some time.

                We use this product to clean up a long unbalanced streaming video feed that has a nasty buzz. Works great!

                  I use this between the audio signal from the sound board to the audio input of a video camera. Before using this I had a hum when I was plugged into the wall outlet and not using battery. Once in place the hum has dissipated and I now have clear audio on my recordings.

                  I give it one star for form-factor. Otherwise it fails in the MOST important aspect of all: SOUND QUALITY. Not much humm/buzz reduction in my experience. You 're better off with the EBTECH Hum Eliminator (which costs a little more). But you WILL get what you pay for!
