Plug your high-impedance gear into low-impedance equipment with the dbx DI1 Active Direct Box.

Using a 9V battery or phantom power from your mixing board or interface, the DI1 takes the high-impedance signal which comes from instruments and other unbalanced TS or XLR sources and transforms it into a low-impedance balanced XLR signal. Low-impedance balanced signals can drive long cables without picking up interference or losing high-end articulation.
