    Whirlwind PCDI reviews

    pcDI - Stereo Line Interface is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool My video company works in theaters and music venues quite a bit. The PCDI box is the perfect tool to pull a record feed from their board. It allows me to use XLR cables to make the long run to wherever my mixing station may be set up. The ability to lift the ground, add a pad, and switch to mono or stereo is great. I also use one of these when I send audio to the House ensuring that they get a nice balanced feed free from ground hum. A couple of these should be part of anyones kit who interfaces with professional sound boards.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Trusted DI box in the market Highly recommended for anyone hooking up a laptop, ipod, or any device needing to interface into a Mixer, PA system. I have used this device in numerous broadcasts and live events and repeatedly delivers clean,balanced sound.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does as promised and solid unit!! The Whirlwind PCDI unit is used to eliminate ground noise from the laptop pc to my PA system. As soon as I plugged it in and switched the ground lift on, NO NOISE.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great balancing box The box is great at balancing unbalanced RCA inputs. Although it is a large box it does an amazing job.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Box I play guitar and wanted to use my tablet to play backing tracks thru my PA. Was running tablet directly into PA input but not great quality sound. Someone suggested a DI Box. Never heard of it but decided to give it a try. Seemed to help the sound quality. Especially helped my laptop. It used to make alien static sounds thru the PA. This little magic box filtered it right out!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stable product We're using the pcDI boxes in a complicated VTC and ProTools set-up for a client who needs to monitor our sessions remotely. The pcDI boxes are helping to keep the signal clean, stable and balanced between our recording set-up on the computer-based VTC. Stability and reliability are absolutely critical, and so far this product delivers.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product This is a piece of gear everyone should have in their tool kit. If you ever have to take audio from a laptop into a large format, high clarity sound system, this is the best unit for doing so.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Laptop to Mackie Use this for PowerPoint presentations at conferences. Computer headphone jack out to the Whirlwind, plus a Y cable XLR that mono-sums everything, then into the Mackie.
