The dbx dB10 is a passive direct box that features custom dbx mu-metal-shielded audio transformers, high-quality Neutrik connectors, and low-noise circuitry. The dB10 direct box includes a pad switch that accommodates instrument, line, and even speaker level signals. Take even more control of your sound by utilizing the dB10 passive direct box's polarity invert switch to set the phase relationship between the direct and the mic'd sound.

As a professional, you don't have time for interference, so dbx includes a ground lift switch in the db10 passive DI box to solve potential hum and buzz problems due to ground loops. And between the combined shielding of the db10's cast metal chassis and the custom-wound transformer, you can be doubly assured of a clean signal free from interference. All of this sits atop the dbx dB10 direct box's solid, stable footprint, that keeps the dB10 box from being dragged around the stage. The dbx DB10 Passive Direct Box also has a uniquely contoured underside that allows secure stacking of multiple units.

good step up

Comments about dbx dB10 Passive Direct Box:

I used this direct box on several medium large gigs and it is a much higher quality tool than my old whirlwind direct box. The whirlwind sounded flat and compressed while this direct box allows the natural sound of (in my case guitar) to shine and shimmer wonderfully. The selectable pad was a nice feature. The build quality was also quite good and I never doubted that the box would perform when I needed it to. Overall a good direct box that blew my old whirlwind out of the water.
