Rackmount DI

Postby Manning » Sun Feb 16, 2014 8:56 pm

Does anyone know of a six channel rack DI which isn't a be!@#$%^&, and costs less than the Radial JD6 ($1100).

I reckon you buy 6 Harbuch or Jensen transformers and stick them in a box and go passive.
An hour or 2 of metalwork but it will never fail.

Al - would love to, but lack both time and skills. I have a mate who could do it, but I'm badly in debt to him already.

Kurt - are you suggesting I should read the 'For Sale' section before posting? Away with you and your foolish notions!

the radial is the one for sure
cheaper than that I'm not too sure..
I've seen a fair few ART ones that seem to work - but never toured anything apart from radial

Yeah well it looks like Outline are getting back into gigging seriously, so I need to have a bit more of a roadworthy rig. Playing both keys and guitar is a major pain in terms of lugging and setup.

Was good to see Bob Spencer on Sat night - didn't get to chat to him but greatly enjoyed his set.

I've PM'd Richard about the Radial.

ARX make a 6 channel rackmount DI

I use all radial myself, but the ARX would serve the middle ground
