Hosa Technology DIB-443 overview

  • 1Description

The DIB-443 "SIDEKICK" from Hosa is a passive direct injection transformer that changes guitar or bass signal to a low-impedance signal appropriate for sending down the snake to the house (or studio) mixing console's XLR inputs.

An "INST/SPKR" switch, when placed in the SPKR position allows an amplifier's extension speaker output to drive the line, thus preserving the original amp sound. A Ground Lift switch breaks ground to help trouble-shoot and terminate 60Hz "ground-loop" hum.

Since the DIB-443 is a passive device, no powering is required.

Allows for connecting a electric guitar or bass directly into a mixer without losing tone due to impedance mismatch, long cables or cycle hum
Converts any unbalanced line-level signal to balanced mic-level output
Ground lift switch prevents ground-loop hum
Ultra-compact, all-metal and road suitable housing
