This direct box is the cheapest passive exists at Thomann's and perhaps anywhere.
Intuitive: you plug the guitar (or keyboard) jack on the base, and an XLR microphone cable with symmetrical signal and lowered impedance (microphone level) is fed to the console.
A second Jack socket in parallel allows the guitarist to plug in his amp.
-1 ground lift, as usual.
-1 Switch to toggle btw inst/line level or speaker level input
Possibility of parallel connection too the speaker of a guitar amp.
The pattern is printed on the canister solid (necessary because this accessory is still lying on the ground and walk on it easily).
Conclusion: Simple and sufficient.
Sound quality sufficient for most needs.
No need to put more expensive for the majority of uses, especially for a guitar or keyboard.
Well, if you want the ultimate in terms of its fidelity, an active box would be better because I do not guarantee the quality of small internal transformer.
I've never tried it on a bass guitar because I have better Di-Box that I reserve for difficult cases such as low.
But in most cases, it should.
It succeeds where my red box HK pro fails ... not bad!
The last detail is that as the XLR output is not isolated from the housing ben ground lift has no effect. A so your tools, not a big deal though.
Option inst / spkr could not be more helpful, I use the DI output on my Marshall amp (the amp box that is plugged into the output of the Sun) and the level playing great. Contrary to common-30db attenuation of-50dB is here, it is necessary for a marshall (the Britons are calibrated !)...
With a jack xlr - 6.3 stereo I am ready to all situations (dj table, old multitrack analog for example).
In use with an instrument, less flattering, but can troubleshoot incredibly ...
So the output of guitar amp is impeccable, except that the signal does not simulate rendering hp guitar.
HK pro my red box is unusable due to large permanent rumble (ground lift or not) and in exactly the same config millennium is the nickel (even with the ground lift option does not work).
Live in a low sound is worse than the Bebert DI100 which it is active, it's normal but not so important to the final result.
Still, it is a liability without regard every time ...
In the trademark for a class transformer needs to be six times more, as usual asked it can be worth it.
For just as it is against the isolation of the XLR box and you have a very decent product with multiple uses, which will save the day many times.
Brief price is full board.
DI have the following available: Bebert DI100 Ultra and g, di210 millennium, HK red box pro, millennium passive stereo. The better the di210
(Passive low-di-PA) and a long, g is the ultra-convenient if you electric guitar (simultaneously disengaged hp) and not too bad.
One day I might need the top, so I slammed 250 in Roros Radial ... by then for 10 Roros ...

DI-E millennium! DI optimum copy of cheapskate! ^ ^
Everything that is most basic, an entry, a low output Impedance, output (link), two buttons is called ground lift and instrument / speaker (???)
It is passive.
Frame which probably served as a sardine box in the USSR ...
The characteristics on paper is a full DI bte ... not blame (for now)
I still do not use the button inst / spkr ...
I understand the usefulness of mass on the button ID. Both say clearly on that has changed nothing.
A if I put 1 because it is small and therefore practical.
IDPs are working better now than passive. Except that I needed a DI dpanage live and I did not want to worry about the presence of a battery charge.
Explanation: a filter mchant, not transparent at all. While the treble is the Premire victims. A bit of noise are ... And now the surpennant: relatively little buzz and breath compared to other DI cheap.
So yes what comes out is ugly, but it is usable. And has changed everything.
Buy spares for playing, i was also curious what feat: "9 euro DI? But it is chocolate or what?!" ... 9 euros is what? 2 pints?
It is purely a low-end product but surprising. Of course, never as good as a DI 100 euro but also good to see better than DI 30 euro. has also to reflect the. So to troubleshoot, or Scrooge and / or mowing.
And the worst in history is that I'm using this crap ... and I may be picking on another there ...
