With a Cinemag transformer and a heap of functionality, the Warm Audio Active Direct Box is not your run-of-the-mill DI. Designed and manufactured to the same exacting standards as the rest of Warm Audio’s lineup of value-packed gear, the Active Direct Box converts high-impedance unbalanced signals from guitars, basses, and other instruments, to low-impedance balanced signals without compromising clarity or tone. The Warm Audio Active Direct Box includes a variable pad with a range of -3dB to -30dB — so you can input the optimal amount of signal to prevent distortion from overly hot sources — and a ground lift switch to help knock out buzz and hum caused by ground loops. Unique among DI boxes, the Amp Out option lets you run your guitar or bass amp’s output directly into a mixer or recording interface 

Plug in your guitar, bass, keyboard, or other high-impedance instruments on the unit’s front panel. The Thru jack sits beside it, for easy access to run a line out to your amp, and the converted signal exits the unit via a sturdy XLR jack on the rear panel. The front-panel switches include Phase, Ground Lift, and Amp Out. On the back panel, you can select passive or active operation, and choose to engage the variable pad.

The Warm Audio Active Direct Box is powered by 48-volt phantom power or by two 9-volts, with an operational life of over 1,600 hours on a fresh set of batteries. The unit auto-senses 48-volt phantom power — switching the unit automatically into active mode — and includes a 48-volt indicator light. When operating on batteries, manually select active or passive mode via the back-panel toggle switch. The batteries are easy to remove and replace when the faraway day comes for a new set!
