Behringer Ultra-DI DI20
The Behringer Ultra-DI DI20 is a two channel direct input box for use in the studio or on the stage. I’ve only used the DI20 on a single occasion in a home studio that wasn’t my own. On paper it’s a very nice DI box, as it’s versatile between the two channels. Each of these two channels consists of a ¼” input and an XLR output. You can power it with either phantom power of a nine volt battery. It isn’t rack mountable as its it’s own floating DI box.



UTILIZATION

It’s not at all hard to use the Behringer Ultra-DI DI20. Once you’ve made your connections, you’ve got a series of parameters to work with, which is nice because you don’t normally find too much on DI boxes in general. There’s a battery on switch, a ground lift switch, a mode switch for linking the two channels, and an attenuation pad which you can set to either – 20 or – 40 db.


SOUND QUALITY

Unfortunately, the sound of the Behringer Ultra-DI DI20 brings it down a few notches. It definitely doesn’t sound awful, but when compared to some other DI boxes out there it’s definitely lacking a bit. I guess it’s the tradeoff that you get when you’re getting two channels of a DI box at this cheap price. In a smaller home studio setting the Behringer Ultra-DI DI20 will be suitable, but otherwise I’d probably stay away from it.


OVERALL OPINION

While on paper the Behringer Ultra-DI DI20 is a great DI box, the sound just isn’t as true as I’d want a DI box to be. It’s a good way to get two pretty in depth DI’s at an incredibly cheap price, but if you’re looking for professional sound, which for me is the end all, I’d probably recommend investing a few more dollars in something else. I also don’t know how well this would hold up over time as it feels pretty cheap and Behringer doesn’t have a great reputation when it comes to this. Check it out if you’re really on a tight budget, but otherwise there are plenty of other options out there that are better and won’t break the bank.

Behringer Ultra-DI DI20
DI entered 6.35mm XLR output. 9v battery or phantom power.
Possibility of use in parallel or 2 channels.

UTILIZATION

Simple configuration, no manual, but is easy to understand how it functions.

SOUND QUALITY

it's behringer. worth its price, it does the job but the sound is not great.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years.
It is a DI that troubleshoots well, that works, that's fine.
I buy it because we just use 2-channel and cheap.

V old man on the hill's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" YES or NO."

Behringer Ultra-DI DI20
It is a dual active DI (Phantom or 9v battery). Which implies 2 inputs and 2 outputs jacks XLR balanced, as is the goal of the operation.
1 pad-20db,-40db.
1 switch: two parallel channels or 1 channel input 2 becomes an output link.
1 Ground lift
1 on / off the 9v battery. The red LED accompanies the arrival of the signal in the 48v engine.
And all this in a box the size of a matchbox waste.
It's much perhaps?

UTILIZATION

Or connect unbalanced sources and "abracadabra" they ressortes balanced.
But I insist a DI box pre amplifies your signal.

SOUND QUALITY

And yes the passage db-10db 4 is a preamp and this is that how do you expect any form of sound quality in a package whose components are selected on criteria of cost.
The DI 20 planes and metallized your signal, the dynamics of your sound is clearly diminished.
When the breath, this box is certainly anything but "noiseless" but the problem never comes by chance and often transcribed DI and amplifies a catastrophic chain cumulated noise devices phases and output levels uncertain and generally coming through low cost cables and connectors varied (RCA mini jack).

OVERALL OPINION

But let justice in this case, which in many cases has saved the lives of professional plateaus. The box at the bottom of the bag, at the bottom of the truck. That nobody wants because it says Behringer above, but at the end of the benefit is rewarded with a "finally held it in".
DI 20 is a good troubleshooting tool that, unfortunately for her, the views of its sound quality is insufficient be first in line to the bridge of the home studio to the stage.

Splotch's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Cheap sound acceptable"

Behringer Ultra-DI DI20
Active direct box, Mono amplifier with reference (link) without reference or stereo amp.

Two jacks and two XLR outputs, LED operation.

Ability to operate on 9 volt battery or phantom power.

Mode choice focntionnement mono or stereo on / off button in case of battery operation, -20 and-40dB PAD, ground lift.

UTILIZATION

Easy to use access to the battery compartment is easy but requires a screwdriver.

The operating LED indicates whether the battery is dead or if the phantom power works.

The buttons are easy to disrupt careful not to walk on the DI

SOUND QUALITY

I use it mainly for synth in stereo and without this exceptional DI widely enough for a coffee or a concert again.
Staining sensitive enough sound good but at this price ...

OVERALL OPINION

I used the first time it has been more than 4 years, this one still works despite storage in damp places sometimes.

I work primarily with BSS AR-133 at work and I also has a Radial JDI. These two models are incomparable in the course details restitution compared to this one. The prices have more elsewhere.

A very good value for an ID that can do stereo.

babas3d's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Avoid this"

Behringer Ultra-DI DI20
This is a direct box size housing 2 Input Jacks 1 / 4 unbalanced and two balanced XLR outputs.

UTILIZATION

There is no need for manual buttons speak for themselves.

SOUND QUALITY

So there ... but then there is the great anything. It produces the opposite effect that should produce an ID.
I had the opportunity to test two of which had knocked a lot and a new one:
- As it had knocked RTL TV reception
- One that was new generating a monstrous blast

OVERALL OPINION

I have made the loan to last night
We had a lot of noise emanating from the PC and out of our speakers Yamaha MSR-250. The hard drive that was "scrouch scrouch" and the processor that was "zouuhh".
We also tested two Stageline DIB-100 passive single channel, not the high end (32 €) and they worked perfectly. They have eradicated our parasites.
So after comparative test of two different entry-level and in exactly the same conditions ... the verdict is clear: I am sure that the breath comes from the Behringer DI and not elsewhere. Otherwise, the Stageline have screwed up in exactly the same way. And those who think we are too stupid not to press the ground lift should review their ears because we have tested all the buttons to try to remove the "breath of death."
So I advise to never buy that stuff there. For € 45 more and I would buy two nine Stageline Behringer instead of one.
I also thought that a DI was something no more complicated to build an adapter, now I know not. In fact my friend who lent me the rent for suckers who do not even know what a balanced signal or interest and who use it just as an adapter.
And then 20 € is the price of the metal box so one wonders what he can install it as mail.
This is the first product Behringer that I test. Now, I'm wary if I ever need to buy their product. The quality seems to be sawtooth, sometimes it works, sometimes it does not work ... even nine

Analog 2 channel DI box

UTILIZATION

Simple config, 2 DI in a

SOUND QUALITY

A blast to bend the reeds

OVERALL OPINION

I use this little box for two months on the concert of varied style
I basically tried BSS (the rolls)
So after reading the various opinions, I am more in agreement with the history of breath even groundée. Once you push a little gain or volume, on the first "slice" is a disaster. However on the second, it does not at all, but hey, all the theoretical interest of this case is a stereo power plugger ... but if one side is unusable, there is no interest.
While agree it's cheap, it's clever in theory, is ultra-convenient, but it's still the Behringer, then all the better if some are satisfied but I would not recommend this unit. I'll opt for a solution although more expensive but more reliable, with 2 boxes better bill and another brand

pilou92's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer Ultra-DI DI20
Bote of two direct channels.
2Ch mode or used in Link (eg to exit a guitar on an amp back to Jack and a mixer with XLR)
Battery or power supply via fantme

UTILIZATION

Mga simple: I bought this in a hurry Casing 3 hours before a show to use the effects of stro my X-Vamp of a mixer. Aside from the connection, nothing reported. We will move to "2ch" or "Link" as the intended use, it activates the power supply battery for power supply by fantme, it activates the "ground" or not (this is probably the cause of the buzz described in other reviews) is possibly the active attnuateur and roll my chicken.

SOUND QUALITY

Perfect. Compltement transparent, no noise, no buzz. Nothing wrong.

OVERALL OPINION

For a price dfiant any competition, this small Casing is perfect for anyone who wants to release a multi-effects on a mixer with XLR and Stereo. Also very practical for a keyboard or guitar that uses just two, soon to have two beasts of Live!
I have not tried the "link".

See their website.

UTILIZATION

Very well and good manual.

SOUND QUALITY

Ok no problem AND NOT blast!

OVERALL OPINION

So let's get srieuses.
I have read all the notices that were published before mine does and I glimpse by chance that some people had big prjugs on the brand Behringer (that is common). It is true that in some brands and even the best, that we sometimes falls on products that give such dfctueux this product a big souffle.J have tried it for twelve days an internship this direct box that we plug the guitars used on a mixing digital and the sound is silent while impcable no problem, switches was strong and all have taken aussi.Je Internet to look at the price of this device and I have t trs surprised the price and the report qualitprix so I give a 10/10.
