Phoenix Audio Nice DI Direct Box

The Phoenix Audio Nice DI Direct Box not only offers 2-channels of 10 MegaOhm transformerless inputs pushing Class-A output transformer driven Direct Injection for your audio, but it makes for a very impressive sounding mix-bus processor and make-up gain for a passive summing network.

The Phoenix Audio Nice DI Direct Box is a high-quality, active, Stereo DI, with Class A, discrete, high-impedance inputs (10M), and Class A, discrete, transformer balanced outputs. It has been tested and used by many guitar professionals in studio recording environments, and the comments are always the same.....The overdrive is fantastic, the guitar sounds clean, clear, and un-restrained. This is the definitive DI!!!. The DI's characteristics are very noticeable on any input source, and is superb for "sweetening" the output from DAW or any other signal source.

Phoenix Audio Nice DI Direct Box Features

  • Advantages: The Class A DI has a very high input impedance (10 MOhm), without the use of FET's. This means that the guitar pickups are not loaded as with a lower impedance input, and so allows every transient to be reproduced, making even a cheap guitar sound exceptional.
  • Other features: Stereo Unit with independent gain control, mains operated, switchable input voltage (110/220Vac)

What We Think - Phoenix Audio Nice DI Review

"The Phoenix Audio Nice DI Direct Box is an absolute dream in the studio and on the stage. 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."
