Simple DI box easy to use. Does what it is suppose to do. Rugged can handle being dropped, and the battles of touring. Great DI box for the money.

Good little box.

I have not used this much in production yet, but I did test it when it came, and it sounds good, and provides the ground lift and attenuation I need. There really is nothing to these, and this is the only one I could find that was priced [email protected]

Use for balancing line level signals, and/or hooking line level mixers into house sound systems that take only have mic level inputs.
