AR-133 Active DI Box description:

With added functionality and enhanced audio performance, the AR-133 has been designed to be more affordable for musicians, studios and PA companies.

The unit includes phantom power and battery supplies as standard. Should the phantom power from the console fail or be accidentally switched off, the AR-133 automatically switches over to the internal 9V battery providing uninterrupted use.

The unit is housed in a rugged aluminum extrusion case, with robust polyurethane end- cheeks, which give the AR-133 a very distinctive look. Input connectors are both 1/4" jack sockets and an XLR socket, the latter meaning that the AR-133 can be used to convert unbalanced signals to a balanced output on XLRs throughout.The arched case allows cables to run back underneath the unit from the end for neat cable management.

Input attenuation is 0, - 20 or -40dB, making the box suitable for instrument, line or amplifier levels on inputs. On the output side, a ground-lift switch is provided for quick solutions to ground loop problems.

The AR-133 uses an enhanced version of the same audio path as the AR-116, now regarded by many people as a reference standard. The sound quality is legendary, particularly on acoustic and bass guitars.

Numerous applications can be satisfied by the AR-133. For example, as well as the traditional guitar use, the AR-133 can be used with keyboards, DJ consoles, amplifier outputs, and other electronic sources.

An additional bonus is the ability to use the AR-133 as an active balancing device.

This is a Great product fantastic price. Highly recommend this product well built and sounds awesome, very little colour action of the audio. Just an all round nice piece of kit.
