New from Radial Engineering is the ProD2, a stereo passive direct box with two discrete channels.
The Radial ProD2 features standard hi-Z inputs and thru-puts 1/4" connectors, -15dB input pads and ground-lift switches for each channel. The balanced output is 600 Ohm to interface with professional snake systems and consoles. All switches are recessed in a protective 'bookcover' zone to shield against damage from the road.
Performance is linear from 20Hz to 18kHz, the ProD2 features exceptionally low harmonic distortion and virtually zero phase distortion in the critical bass and mid zone according to the company. Because of the transformer isolation, problems such as hum and buzz caused by ground loops are eliminated, making it very easy and hassle-free to use. Built for durability and finished in a tough deep green enamel, the ProD2 measures a tidy 3 1/4" x 5", very compact for a stereo unit and easy to fit in a guitar or accessory case.
Retail price is $149USD.
