Phoenix Audio N8 8-Channel DI Specifications

  • Class A multichannel (eight) DI Output specs.
  • Gain range : 30dB
  • Frequency Response: 20Hz to 20Khz +/- 0.5dB
  • Maximum Output: +26dBu @ 1Khz

  • Inputs: 1/4″ jack (TS) through on the front panel
  • Output configuration: Transformer isolated, main balanced output (D-sub wired to Tascam DA88 standard) on the rear panel
  • Output configuration: Transformer isolated, monitor balanced output (D-sub wired to Tascam DA88 standard) on the rear panel that can be used in conjunction with main outputs.
  • Fully compliant external 24v @ 1amp PSU with lockable connector
  • Pad on every channel (15db) with illuminated switch
  • Phase reverse on every channel with illuminated switch
  • Earth ground lift on every channel with illuminated switch

What We Think

"The Phoenix Audio Nice DI is an absolute dream in the studio. Not only does the Nice DI maintain a beefy and punchy, almost 3-D sound for bass guitars, electric guitars, keyboards and piezo-pickups, but the Nice DI can work some wonders when used between the L and R outputs of your DAW. Often the sound of an ITB (In-The-Box) mix can be sterile in the end; lacking of energy. The Phoenix Audio Nice DI (as well as the Phoenix Audio Nicerizer 16 MkII) really makes a dramatic musical difference in this area. The Phoenix Audio Nice DI is a low-cost way to improve audio on the front end and the back end of your system."
