    Whirlwind DIR+ reviews

    Director Plus - Direct Box is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality DI Box The main reason I bought this was to deal with ground loop issues I've had when recording direct from my guitar amplifier pre to my audio interface - which it has dealt with perfectly. Also it now allows me to use the speaker out from my tube amp with the pad switched on and the 'thru' going to a dummy load. The Dimax transformer has good specifications on paper, and in practice I can't hear any change in audio quality when routing the guitar amp or my active bass guitar direct through the DI - no low or high end loss. My passive electric guitar is a different story, lots of high end loss, but it's an impedance thing and is not what I planned to use it for. So I don't recommend it for passive pickup instruments going direct, my understanding is you would want an active box for that.The case is solid extruded aluminium and the inner case is also metal. The xlr jack and switches are plastic but they are recessed into the box so should be protected. It will be mostly a studio tool for me anyway but it looks durable.One thing to note - the description on B&H and even Whirlwinds website say it has a high-cut filter like the standard Director DI box, but actually is is a thru/combine swtch to sum a stereo signal to mono - you can see the label in the photo. I suspected that would be the case before it arrived. A filter would have been nice but not essential for me as I'm processing the amp sound through cabinet IRs anyway. The combine feature may come in handy one day.This is my first DI but I wanted to get something that I hope will last forever and not compromise audio quality - I think it will be fine.
