About Behringer ULTRA-DI PRO DI800 Professional Mains/Phantom Powered 8-Channel DI-Box
The ULTRA-DI PRO DI800 is a professional mains/phantom powered 8-channel active DI-box. If you need a rack-mountable DI unit with enough inputs to accommodate everyone on stage, or in the studio – then you need to plug into the DI800!
Direct Injection (DI) boxes make it possible to connect guitars, basses and keyboards (as well as other line-level devices) to audio mixers and recorders. They are absolutely essential for proper impedance-matching and to maintain signal integrity. Our active DIs feature “buffered” inputs that respect your source signal much better than passive DI boxes can. Balanced signals leaving Behringer ULTRA-DI PRO DI800 professional mains/phantom powered 8-channel di-box are extremely low-impedance (typically less than 680 Ω), and far less susceptible to noise and RF Interference (RFI).
¼” In, XLR Out – There has to be More?
When it comes right down to it, all DI boxes do the same thing, right? Yes, but Behringer ULTRA-DI PRO DI800 professional mains/phantom powered 8-channel di-box does much more than just “bass guitar in, mic-level signal out.” It really is a highly versatile input-signal toolkit. Here are just two advantages the DI800 has over standard DI boxes: Maybe you’d like to connect your guitar amp’s speaker output to your mixer? Not a problem, the DI800 features a -30 dB attenuation switch, allowing you to connect to speaker outputs rated up to 3,000 Watts – and convert them to balanced XLR outs! Weak incoming signal? The DI800 has a +20 dB switch, which really comes in handy for boosting low-level input signals to balanced signals with real power and rock-solid impact. Of course, the DI800 provides a Link output for easy connection to other equipment, such as your onstage amplifiers and monitor consoles. Servo-balanced performance guarantees ultra-fat frequency response – and the gold-plated XLR output connectors provide reliable, low-noise operation. Per channel ground-lift switches eliminate ground-loop hum issues. Behringer ULTRA-DI PRO DI800 professional mains/phantom powered 8-channel di-box does everything a standalone DI can do, and much more – times eight!
Unlike their passive counterparts, active DI boxes require a power source to make their internal electronics work. The DI800 provides two power options: 120 – 240 V~ from the nearest wall outlet or power strip, or +18 to +48 V DC from your mixer’s phantom power supply.
Superior Sound, Incredible Value
Behringer ULTRA-DI PRO DI800 professional mains/phantom powered 8-channel di-box delivers exceptional sound quality – at an extremely affordable price.
