Overview

The PDI Double Shielded DI Box provides increased protection against noise and interference. Features 1/4" high impedance from instrument wired in the panel. Makes no difference which is used for input or output. 1/4" high impedance goes to your amp when input/output is used as a loop.

Balanced and floating low-impedance XLR goes to your workstation or mixing console, and ignores +48V phantom power. The Lift mode severs ground connection between the input and the XLR output and ground remains connected in GND mode.

1/4" high impedance input and output
Balanced XLR output
Ground lift switch
Double shielded to reduce interference

Great price, excellent results

By Kenton Brace

Comments about Livewire PDI Double Shielded Heavy Duty Passive Direct Box:

This direct box has helped me out at so many gigs and recording sessions. Totally affordable, durable, and reliable. Any performer on the go wants DI boxes that are double shielded and it's heavy duty all-steel casing can take a beating! The rubber skid pad underneath keeps it from sliding on any surface weather it is a stage floor or carpeting. The ground lift is really helpful to when I am going from an ungrounded stomp box effects processor.

      Comments about Livewire PDI Double Shielded Heavy Duty Passive Direct Box:

      I bought this product a few weeks ago. It is great for live performances and can really help to improve your guitar signal. Comes in very handy when you are wanting to cut unwanted noise from your signal of your acoustic guitar to the PA. Highly recommended device.

        Comments about Livewire PDI Double Shielded Heavy Duty Passive Direct Box:

        This DI has a steel case, metal jacks and a metal XLR connector. The ground-lift is a sturdy rocker-type switch. The construction exceeds that of the "name brand" passive DI boxes. It sounds good and works reliably. If you just need a solid, working DI, look no further.

          Using to record guitar tracks in my small home studio, nothing but clean, crisp signals so far. Would recommend!

              Comments about Livewire PDI Double Shielded Heavy Duty Passive Direct Box:

              This seems to be the only reasonably priced DI that Guitar Center has in stock. The $100 Radial passive DI is good but is worth more than twice this one? Doubt it.

              I opened the case and found a nice toroidal wound double shielded transformer inside. Nice metal XLR. Overall well made.

              I cannot comment on the subtleties of the sound but for what I use it for this just works fine (connecting a laptop to a PA mixer).
