Harley Benton JDI-01
And speaker line inputs, outputs and XLR thru speaker. Phantom power or 9V boss format, I do not know if you can put a stack (the box is local ...).
Ground lift switch and choice of simulation (combo or 412). LED power indicator.
Calibrated signal output dynamic microphone, so little powerful (unimportant console) and not suitable for old or multi amp effects loop for example.
Also, the line input is not possible to connect an electric guitar straight into it (unless it is active), normal.
Little noisy box, no breath to report but the console that hosts a sake to have good preamps because of the low signal intensity of the jdi01.

The sounds are issued rather cool and airy, but too much treble (rough and rude as well). Overall it seriously lacks flexibility, the competitor bebert ultra-g is better in all respects.
I tested extensively with the aforementioned strong enough bebert the palmer junction and pro redbox (which are passive), and my faith harley is the worst of the four.

The passive is much better at high volume, specific physical advantage over transformers electronic hack ... Okay they are 2-3 times more expensive but definitely worth it.

In fact better simulation board digitech (bad monkey / grunge / hot head / screamin 'blues) holds for any pedal placed upstream also because it has a finer grain and pretty. You then have a distortion / overdrive almost free bonus, besides the level suitable for an old multitrack example.

These are my conclusions, thank you for your reading

This is a special guitar direct box with speaker simulation (2x12 or 4x12-choice) always switched on (at the junction palmer, that I also own).
It can be fed through the table (phantom power), via 9v battery, or via boss 9v adapter size and that's really great.
There is also an effective ground lift.
You can enter the speaker size (from jacks to amp and speaker) as between the amp and box, but the format or multi-effects pedal (single jack located on the other side of the box).
The output is via XLR only, and the level is quite low, as a vocal microphone wholesale, significantly weaker than my behringer ultra g di active.


Very simple to use, I use either out of my head marshall (I plug the box into the jack of suitable di box) so speaker level, either out of my distortion pedal if I go straight into the PA me without clutter.

With the Marshall I often have a problem of mass, so the ground lift the di is very useful. The level is perfect despite watts sent.
Thanks to the power supply by transformer 9v em I'm not ... Powermixer lacks a phantom power supply, case quite often my faith.

With the distortion pedal I warn about the bypass, it is imperative NOT to be like true bypass because di is the input format and not online instrument. Rest assured the only risk is to have a clean sound rotten, you will not break anything huh.
If you are all the time distortion does not change shit.
This is the only weak point compared to the di Bebert ultra g which accepts the signal guitar in style.


The sound is clean, airy and sharp enough compared to the Bebert, and both options are differentiated (the 4x12 longer provided in the lower and smoother overall).
In fact it will depend on the rest of your stuff, with an aggressive sound is the Bebert more manageable, and with columns rather it is the sweet harley who will be forced to revive your instrument.

What is nice with it is the function of ultra visible light (in case of confusion is priceless).

The sound is according to each, have the Bebert, the original rath, and the palmer still a specialty rocktron my faith and each offers a viable alternative and quality.

I love for its practicality palmer (passive) and effective as well typed, the Bebert for its output level, the simulation box can be triggered its entry-level guitar or box, and its format for harley-its-price its Power-format.


Have I said everything in the previous chapter I believe ...

In short it is a good product with very good sound, I have not tested against by registration (as the other way).

Considering the price I took two, to carry out the chorus or stereo delay ...
