Connect instrument, line, or speaker level signals to a mixer or other balanced inputs with the dual high-quality, independent active interfaces in DUALXDirect from ART. Delivering an isolated, balanced, and low impedance signal out, each of the high impedance 1/4" and XLR inputs (provided via "combo" jacks) are buffered and converted by very low noise active electronics.

With extremely flat and wide frequency response, this Dual-Channel Active Direct Box can handle high signal levels and provides a clean, neutral sound with a wide variety of signal sources over long runs—even in high noise environments.

Additional control of levels and isolation are provided by the input ATTENUATOR, input THRU jacks, and GROUND LIFT.

Power DUALXDirect via phantom voltage or by an internal 9 V battery. Using phantom voltage through the OUTPUT connections draws power from external sources, while battery powered operation draws less than 7.5 mA independently for approximately 100 hours of operation.

POWER ON/OFF switch lights monitor battery life for easy operation. The rugged, compact black-anodized all aluminum case and active design make DUALXDirect a reliable tool for Live Sound, Permanent/Fixed Install, D.J., and virtually any PA application.
