Klark-Teknik DN-100 DI Box
August.03/ 2006 Filed in: CareySound Recommends
It's amazing how many cheap DI's I see in a years time. I've even seen major audio players hook up expensive bass guitars and keyboard synthesizers to those dinosaurs. They will spend thousands of dollars on their rig and then have their underpaid soundguy run your carefully created sound through a cheap $30 box. I hope you wouldn't sing through a $30 microphone, so why trust your sound to some cheap DI made by some wire company?
The Klark Teknik DN100 Direct Injection Box is a ground-up redesign that provides extended dynamic range, lower noise floor and all the world-class audio performance that you’d expect from Klark Teknik. DN100 is also designed to handle the rigours of life on the road: a thick aluminium shell protects the electronics, and this in turn is protected by a tough silicone rubber casing, which is replaceable and available as a spare part. They've also fitted a Kensington security slot in one of the end panels to allow the unit to be made secure using a Kensington MicroSaver security cable. (Click here for DN100EDS specifications)
It's not any more expensive than a couple of fill-ups of that SUV you drive. It's only $187.50 and what the heck, I'll even help you out. Bring me your old DI and I'll pay you $30 bucks for it if you replace it with the DN-100. I have found a few good uses for the old ones.
