Powered by an internal 9-volt battery or via phantom power at the XLR output, the Xdirect Active Direct Box from ART features a switchable low-pass filter that cuts out all very high-frequency interference. This Bessel filter on the output is placed out of the audio range and is primarily intended to reduce radio frequency interference before it gets into the main system. The filter also reduces computer noise artifacts when used as an interface between a computer-based audio workstation and monitors. Phase inversion switch reverses signal polarity at the source. The ART Xdirect has a stylish, compact, and durable chassis; input attenuator switches for a wide range of signal levels; and an input through jack for tapping off the signal chain. A ground lift switch lets you totally separate the input and output signal grounds, reducing hum and ground-loop noise.

Comments about ARTcessories Xdirect Professional Active Direct Box:
I haven't performed with it yet, but I know what to expect when I do. It seems like you have three categories of direct boxes. There is the dirt cheap, poorly made type, the USA-made, rock solid, extremely expensive type, and this middle-of-the-road choice which gives great sound, looks good, and does everything needed for a great price. Even when the fantastic ones went on a blowout sale, I saved about $70 by getting this one instead, and I bet I could not tell the difference tonally. I have some other Art boxes, and I'm thrilled with them. Nuff said!
