  • ART DUALXDirect Dual Active Direct Box Details

    The ART DUALXDirect Professional Active Direct Box is a 2-channel version of the original ART Xdirect. It's a high-quality active interface that lets you connect a pair of instrument, line, or speaker level signals to a mixer or other set of balanced inputs. The DUALXDirect is a high quality, rugged and affordable enhancement to any professional studio, home recording, and touring or installed live performance sound system.

    The DUALXDirect's single-ended hi-Z 1/4" and XLR inputs are buffered and converted, by very low noise active electronics, into an isolated balanced low impedance signal source. An extremely flat and wide frequency response allow the DUALXDirect to handle high signal levels while still maintaining an isolated balanced low impedance output. This gives the DUALXDirect a very clean and neutral sound with a wide variety of signal sources and over long signal runs in high noise environments.

    Unlike traditional direct boxes, the DUALXDirect features a switchable low pass filter that cuts out all very high frequency interference. This Bessel filter on the output is placed out of the audio range and is reduces radio frequency interference before it gets into the main system. The filter is also very effective in reducing any digital computer noise artifacts when using the DUALXDirect as an interface between a computer DAW and monitors.

    The DUALXDirect'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. The Ground Lift switch lets you totally separate the input and output signal grounds, when appropriate, to isolate two systems - reducing hum and ground-loop noise in the process.

    The compact black anodized all aluminum case and its flexible power design allow the DUALXDirect to provide years of trouble free service in live sound, permanent installations, DJ booths, and virtually any PA application. The DUALXDirect 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 full feature set, rugged construction, and high-end specifications make the DUALXDirect the obvious choice whenever you have to interface high impedance sources with a low noise balanced system.
