The Radial J48 is a great sounding active direct box that has been optimized to produce maximum headroom while working within the limited current available from standard 48V phantom power. By employing a unique switching power supply, the J48 is capable of peak transients to 9 volts without choking. The result is lower harmonic distortion, half the inter-modulation distortion and significantly improved dynamics over other DIs.

Features include a -15dB pad, 180 polarity reverse, a unique merge function to mix two signals to mono, an 80Hz high-pass rumble filter, and ground lift. Like all Radial products, the J48 is built to handle the abuse on the road and features a unique welded I-beam construction for years of trouble free performance.

There are less expensive options, but you will definitely not regret shelling out a little more for the J48. My interface has a nice DI, but this box makes the tone clearer and more present, and the highs are crisper. I got this primarily for a guitar with really hot passive pickups, but it sounds amazing with active pickups as well. Radial customer service/tech support is really responsive as well if you have questions.
