Building on KLARK TEKNIK's storied legacy of highest-quality direct injection devices, the DI 10A PRO DI ACTIVE offers the same high headroom, dynamic response and sonic clarity you have come to expect. DI 10A is ideal for interfacing keyboards, samplers and other electronic musical instruments to mixing consoles and faithfully reproduces the character of electric and acoustic instruments, allowing far more of the detail of musical performances to be captured. The DI 10A is powered by +48 V phantom power with a 9 V battery backup, which automatically allows the device to function should phantom power fail or be unavailable. Equipped with a switchable input attenuator, DI 10A easily accommodates instruments, line and even loudspeaker level signals - and thanks to its extremely low noise input circuit topology (-112 dBu), DI 10A provides extended dynamic range, making it the perfect choice for professional audio and multimedia applications. Compact & Rugged Construction The ultra-compact DI 10A is built to handle the rigours of life on the road via a thick and rugged aluminum extrusion that protects the electronics. The enclosure's roadworthiness is further enhanced through the implementation of sturdy rubber corner bumpers. MIDAS - The Legend in Sound Quality Ever since its formation in the 1970s, MIDAS has had a long history of innovation and leadership in the world of audio mixing consoles. Employed by the most famous touring acts and installations world-wide, legendary MIDAS consoles such as the XL4 and Heritage H3000 quickly became industry standards. MIDAS has earned their impeccable reputation due to their no-compromise approach for audio and build quality and in particular for their Award-winning products which are considered by industry experts as the industry's best sounding designs. Building on this legacy, the XL8 and PRO Series of Live Mixing Systems continue this great heritage of Award-winning audio quality. KLARK TEKNIK is proud to incorporate MIDAS designed transformers for the ultimate in high-quality audio reproduction in both live and studio environments.

High Headroom Design A custom instrumentation-grade input circuit was designed for the DI 10A using advanced analogue design techniques to create the very high input impedance required by passive guitar and bass pickups, whilst keeping the actual component values low to minimize noise. This innovative approach to circuit design produces a very low noise floor, which combined with the high clipping point creates an unrivalled dynamic range in a +48 V phantom powered DI Box. Connectivity & More DI 10A PRO DI ACTIVE features genuine high quality Neutrik XLR and high impedance 1/4" TS connectors to maintain the highest signal integrity. The Input connectors accept balanced and unbalanced signals over TRS, TS or XLR cables with plugs, with the Thru jack passing an unbalanced 1/4" TS signal to local amps/monitors. The Output XLR jack sends a balanced version of the Input signal to your mixing board or other processing device. Input Pad, Power & Earth Lift Switches Features a highly versatile input Pad, the DI 10A easily accommodates signal levels ranging from +10 to +50 dBu. The Earth Lift switch separates the input and output grounds, eliminating earth loops between equipment on different mains electricity supplies. Power is managed via a dedicated switch with an LED indicator that indicates the current operating state: battery power active = LED blinks; battery power off = LED off and phantom power active = LED constantly on. Versatility The DI 10A PRO DI ACTIVE provides maximum versatility, frequency response from 10 Hz to 90 kHz (+/-3 dB), MIDAS custom-design transformers for the ultimate signal integrity and much more - all in a road-ready enclosure that stands ready for your input.
