Samson MCD2 Pro Passive Direct Box

Samson's MCD2 Pro Stereo Passive PC Direct Box is the ideal solution for connecting unbalanced line level signals from laptops, CD/MP3 players, and DJ mixers to professional, balanced equipment.

Durable, roadworthy construction and two Mu-metal shielded transformers provide high-quality signal connection solutions for a variety of live sound and recording applications. The MCD2 Pro features two of Samson's STLX Mu-Metal shielded transformers that deliver an extended, flat frequency response with ultra-low distortion and superior protection against hum and RF interference. The MCD2 Pro's balanced outputs provide clean signals that are less susceptible to noise than unbalanced lines, allowing for longer cable runs.

The MCD2 Pro features dual 1/4", RCA and a stereo 1/8" input to accommodate any line level instrument or consumer audio connection. Its selectable Stereo/Mono sum switch allows users to accommodate typical mono "house" PA systems. Additionally, a 2-position 0dB/-12dB attenuation switch provides users with ample headroom to handle hotter inputs.

Housed in a 14-guage noise-reducing steel chassis, the MCD2 Pro is built to withstand the abuse of the most demanding live tours. Its rigid outer shell protects all the MCD2 Pro's internal connections, switches and solder joints from failure, ensuring quiet, reliable performance.
