The DTI (Dual Transformer/Isolater) from ART is a high quality, totally passive audio interface that uses a pair of high performance transformers to totally separate input and output signal grounds, thereby isolating two systems and reducing hum and ground-loop noise.

The unit’s audio transformers have an extremely flat and wide frequency response and can handle high signal levels while maintaining an isolated balanced output. This gives the DTI a very clean and neutral sound with a wide variety of signal sources. The transformers are wound for 1:1 unity gain and are designed to be used with impedances from 600 Ω to 100k Ω.

Versatility Useful for making a “clean” interface between a computer based audio workstation and a speaker system, isolation on long cable runs in a fixed installation, isolation of a signal source from any recording equipment, or in many cases, just a safer connection between two audio systems.

Connectivity Provides XLR, 1/4″ phone and RCA type phono connections on all inputs and outputs. This allows the unit to easily fit into virtually any audio system and be the clean patch point between all types of systems.

Construction A compact black anodized, all aluminum case and passive design allow the DTI to provide years of trouble free service in Live Sound, Permanent/Fixed Install, D.J. and virtually any PA application.

The ARX DI-PLUS 2 represents another major step forward in active direct boxes. Packaged in
a single channel stand-alone format, the DI-PLUS 2 represents a fresh look at active stereo
D.I. concepts.

Precision engineered
Ultra quiet, ultra clean circuitry delivers maximum headroom whatever the signal. Premium grade
components, plus an all-steel chassis gives excellent hum and noise specifications and superb
audio quality in a tough, roadworthy package. Accurate Left and Right channel level matching keeps
the stereo image centred.

Level control
The DI-PLUS 2 features two high impedance unbalanced inputs on the front panel, running to balanced
XLR outputs on the rear. A a global Pad switch drops inputs by 20dB, making it suitable for all applications
from the softest keyboard to the hottest broadcast levels.
 
Battery compartment
The revolutionary simple 'clamshell' action of the DI-PLUS 2 battery compartment makes battery changing
extremely easy, even on the darkest stages.
A 9v alkaline battery snaps into a PCB mounted battery holder for fast, secure location. No fragile battery clip
leads to break, no tools required, no screws to lose. Production crew heaven!
 
Automatic Phantom switching
The DI-PLUS 2 will automatically switch itself to the console's own Phantom Power, if available, and an LED
will indicate this mode. Turn the Phantom Power off and it will instantly revert back to battery mode.

Rugged all-steel case
A lot of direct boxes are fitted into brittle cast alloy cases. Not this one! The tough all-steel inner and outer
chassis of the DI-PLUS 2 provide excellent RF/EMF shielding while making it a sturdy, heavy duty unit that
is hard to dislodge, and hard to leave behind.

Whether you're a Studio or Live Sound engineer, installation contractor, or broadcast engineer, you want all
the dynamics,clarity and stereo information of the original sound source transferred to the mixing console.
The ARX DI-PLUS 2 provides a rugged, no-compromise solution to all stereo direct injection and signal
balancing requirements.

Tube-buffered DI-Box DI-1000

The Tube-Buffered DI-Box DI-1000 allows the extraction of all the musical details of
musical interfaces without degrading the sound. This can only be achieved by
providing a very high input impedance to avoid any loading of instrument pickups.This
design approach allows seemingly infinite headroom to preserve the real dynamic range
of the interfaced instruments.A vacuum tube enables all these goals to be achieved
without any compromises in sound quality.The sonic difference between a standard
DI-Box and the Tube-Buffered DI-Box is comparable to the musical resolution difference
between a standard microphone and a studio microphone.One of the best transformers,
the very transparent sounding JENSEN JT-DB-E, was chosen providing complete ground
isolation. The parameters of this transformer, like frequency response, phase response,
group delay and geadroom capabilities, play a vital part in the performance of this DI-Box.
 
Technical Specifications
Input
The signal of the instrument is directly fed to the tube circuit with > 20 MOhms input
impedance to prevent any signal degradation, inevitable in traditional designs.
Buffered Output“
The second stage of the vacuum tube is used to buffer the signal and lower the output
impedance to < 8 kOhms. This unity gain output allows for cable runs of 10 meters
without loosing high frequency information.
Boost circuit
The boost circuit increases the signal send to the output transformer by 15 dB. This may
be useful for instruments with extremely low output, but decreases headroom capability
to 6 Volt rms. Under these circumstances the signal may be clipped, concerning the output
transformer?s signal, which gives you 2nd harmonic tube-like distortion. This distortion
normally does not occur - but is sometimes desirable, being the reason for this special feature.
Unity circuit
The unity circuit feeds a low distortion unity gain signal to the JENSEN output transformer.
This gives the best possible sound quality.
Ground-lift“-Switch
This front panel mounted switch allows complete ground and electrical isolation between the
direct injection box and the console or recording device.

Level control
The DI-PLUS features a Normal gain high impedance unbalanced input on the front panel, running to
a balanced XLR output on the rear. There is also a separate -40dB Speaker Level input for signal coming
from the External (auxiliary) speaker output of an amplifier. A a global Pad switch drops both the normal
input and the speaker input by a further 20dB, making it suitable for all applications, from the softest
keyboard to the hottest broadcast levels.
