CANFORD ACTIVE DI BOX 1 channel, ground compensated, PP3 battery or phantom powered

Stock code
CANFORD ACTIVE DI BOX 1 channel, ground compensated, PP3 battery or phantom powered


Phantom or battery powered. External battery access. Virtually unbreakable extruded metal case body. Ground compensating circuitry, no ‘ground lift’ switch necessary.

Two inputs and a 20dB pad switch are provided giving attenuations of 0, 20, 45 or 65dB. Another front panel switch is provided to select the jack socket output either ‘buffered’ from the input jacks, or in ‘parallel’ with them. Thus the musician can obtain his preferred ‘sound’ with all the other advantages of an active DI Box. With suitable wiring, the buffered output can provide a transformer isolated signal for a second mixer.
