Pyle Pro PDC22 DI Direct Injection box demo and review
The Pyle Pro PDC22 is an unpowered Dual Direct DI box. It converts unbalanced signals to balanced signals andbalanced to unbalanced. It also features a parallel out in order to loop a signal back. The DI also has a -0dB, -20dB and -40dB which allows you to connect higher powered connection to it to send via balanced out like amp speaker outs etc. It also features a ground lift. It is of full metal construction and in my tests noiseless. It does exactly what it is requested to do.
