The high impedance single-ended 1/4\" input is converted by the transformer into an isolated balanced low impedance signal source. The Zdirect\'s audio transformer has an extremely flat and wide frequency response and can handle high signal levels while still maintaining an isolated balanced low impedance output. This gives the Zdirect a very clean and neutral sound with a wide variety of signal sources, and over long signal runs in high noise environments.The Input Attenuator switches allow for a wide range of signal levels and the Input Thru jack allows for tapping 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, thereby reducing hum and ground-loop noise.What further sets the Zdirect apart from other \"DI\" boxes are its extended features and versatility. ART has added 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 primarily intended to reduce 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 Zdirect as an interface between a computer based audio workstation and your monitors. The Phase Invert switch, while not normally included with your run of the mill D.I. box, has been added to allow you to switch signal polarity right at the source. This feature is especially handy when you are combining a direct tap with a microphone feed in the mix.The compact black anodized all aluminum case and its passive design allow the Zdirect to provide years of trouble free service in Live Sound, Permanent/Fixed Install, D.J., and virtually any PA application. Its full feature set, rugged construction, and high-end specifications make the Zdirect the obvious choice.

Don’t know what the sound pro with volume issues was talking about. This device actually increased the volume on my keyboard setup to where I had to back it down about 30. I use the through outputs to connect with a mini mixer to which I have a small mic connected. In this way I can hear what is happening on stage and get a real stereo mix through earbuds, even though I mix down post direct box to mono via a XLR to mono adapter. This really helps when you’re playing live. Used the ground lift on both channels and it totally erased a slight hum. Really a nice affordable little stereo (or two channel) box with a tough aluminum case. Love the nutless inputs too. Nothing to retighten. Totally recommend it for pro keyboard.

This box works fine with guitars but it kills the signal from our keyboards. It reduces the volume on our keyboards by about 80. We could compensate on the mixer but it is just too much of a drop. Really strange. Never seen this before. We have 5 or 6 other boxes from various brands and none of them do this. I don't know if we got one that is flawed but I wouldn't buy it to use with a keyboard unless you are using the headphones jack. And yes we had the buttons all set correctly. I've been doing sound for 37 years. It would probably work well with anything with a really hot signal.

This DI is excellent. No noise adding to the signal, with lots of possible configurations through the push-buttons. Well finished. I do recommend it!
