To-balance against the opinion below, including the phrase very questionable "The sound quality is average but not too bad (it is only of Samson)" which requires a user formatted "it's cheap, this is not the big brand, so it's bad ... "I would say that this little box works wonders.
What is it?
It's not exactly a direct box because it does not have input / output RCA jack but 6.35, which does not intend the instrument (or microphones) usually connected to these "boxes". But we had to classify it somewhere ...
This is a balun / désymétriseur: running in both directions, it can convert an unbalanced signal "general public" -10 dBu balanced signal to a "pro" +4 dBV, or vice versa (see diagram on the box) while being able to adjust the level by a said knob, on each side.
In summary: adaptation level, symmetrization or vice versa, is stereo (or two mono channels).

UTILIZATION

I use it to get the stereo signal from a battery Roland, symmetrized by a direct box, a mixer with line level inputs are asymmetric. This allows me to connect the battery - or any other material line level - with very long cables, the first goal of the symmetrization of a material lacks balanced inputs.
Conversely, if I had a console with balanced inputs, I could connect it to S Convert the battery and send it to the console (it would be the equivalent of a direct box).
The HiFistes can use it to mix devices with HiFi sound equipment, such as the famous Behringer DCX2496. An electric desymmetrization does not always give good results (depending on elements upstream and downstream).

SOUND QUALITY

Transparent. The features described in the instructions are excellent (HiFi quality).

OVERALL OPINION

Who already have other accessories for Mini Series S Samson, I can say without blinking that is very robust, well designed and manufactured.
A ± 25 € on the market (rare) of secondhand is a steal. A ± 55 € new, it's quite cheap for services - specific - he makes.
