Availability: Out of Stock


  • A stylish and very compact durable aluminium chassis.
  • Input attenuator switches for a wide range of signal levels.
  • Phase Invert switch on the box for quick phase corrections.
  • An "input thru" jack that allows for tapping off of the signal chain.

The Art XDirect is a Professional Active Direct Box that Provide a high-quality interface that lets you connect instrument, line, or speaker level signals to a mixer or other balanced input. The high impedance single-ended 1/4″ and XLR inputs are buffered and converted, by very low noise active electronics, into an isolated balanced low impedance signal source.

The Direct has an extremely flat and wide frequency response and can handle high signal levels while still maintaining an isolated balanced low impedance output. This gives the Xdirect a very clean and neutral sound with a wide variety of signal sources and over long signal runs in high noise environments.

The Input Attenuator switches allow for a wide range of signal levels and the Input Link jack allows for tapping off of your signal chain. The Ground Lift switch lets you totally separate the input and output signal grounds, when appropriate, to isolate two systems, thereby reducing hum and ground-loop noise.
