INSPIRATION

We've taken our inspiration from the sound of vintage hifi equipment from the 80s, at the height of the use of audio transformers, which gave a good, big, loud sound.

But as you would expect from an excellent hifi device, the DI02S also offers great transparency to respect the timbre of your instruments.

A very high input impedance offering a wide and dynamic sound, perfect for modern & vintage instruments.
2
A "Buffer" feature on the Link output to ensure a perfect impedance match with the following amplifier, and always the best sound.
3
An output PAD to input microphone preamps after the direct box and get the colour you want.
WONDERING WHAT'S INSIDE ?
A classic HiFi inspired circuit - ideal for feeding vintage gears with low input impedance.
The legendary Carnhill© VT24499 output transformer for total galvanic isolation while adding body and character.
An ultra-low-noise universal power supply, ready for your next world tour.
Ok, sounds cool,
but what about the
specs?
  • Class A push-pull power stage, inspired by vintage HI-FI output stages: a must for exceptional roundness and transients
  • Very high input impedance - over 4 MΩ - not loading the source, and independent of the PAD position
  • 0 or +13dB input gain
  • OUTPUT PAD (-12/-24/-36dB) allowing to input microphone preamplifiers after the DI02S
  • Max input level: +9dBU without PAD | +18dBU with PAD
  • Max output level: +22dBU without PAD | +19dBU with PAD
  • Output transformer: Carnhill VT24499
  • Integrated buffer circuit on the LINK output
  • Rear instrument input, linked to the front panel input (could be used as a second LINK OUT, but will not benefit from the BUFFER)
  • VU Meter to monitor how hard you hit the output transformers (including clipping indicator)
  • Earth lift on the XLR outputs to avoid ground loops (independent for each channel)
  • Frequency response (1kΩ load) : ±1.0dB from 5.4Hz to 25+kHz | ±0.2dB from 20Hz to 20kHz
  • SNR : >102dB (0.2% max THD)
  • Worldwide compatible power supply: 100-240V | 50-60Hz
  • Dimensions (1U rack) : 483x260x44mm | 19.0x10.2x1.7in
  • Weight : 4.3kg | 9.4lb
