ART XDirect · DI Box

The ART XDirect is a active DI box to connect instruments, line level gear, or speaker-level signals to a mixer or other balanced input. The high-impedance unbalanced 1/4-inch and XLR inputs are buffered and converted by very low-noise active electronics into an isolated balanced low-impedance signal source. The XDirect has an extremely flat and wide frequency response, and it can handle high signal levels while still maintaining an isolated balanced low-impedance output.

The ART XDirect features a switchable 30kHz lowpass filter that cuts out all very high-frequency interference beyond the audio range and reduces radio frequency interference before it gets into the main system.

The XDirect can be powered by an internal 9-volt battery or via phantom power at the XLR output. It senses phantom power and will automatically draw from that source.

The XDirect's input attenuator switches allow for a wide range of signal levels and the input link jack lets you tap off of your signal chain. A ground-lift switch separates the input and output signal grounds to isolate two audio systems and reduce hum and ground-loop noise.

  • Single-channel active direct box
  • Stylish and very compact durable aluminum chassis
  • Input attenuator switches for a wide range of signal levels
  • Phase Invert switch
  • Input Thru jack that allows for tapping off of the signal chain
  • Ground-lift switch to separate the input and output signal grounds to reduce hum and ground-loop noise
