The Radial Pro48 is a high-performance 48V phantom powered active direct box designed specifically for today's higher output instruments. The Pro48's innovative digital switching power supply significantly increases headroom and allows for less distortion while yielding a smooth, linear response extending from 20Hz to well above 100kHz resulting in natural, uncolored signal transfer. This superior performance makes the Pro48 an ideal candidate for use with today's battery powered active basses and acoustic guitars that tend to overload other direct boxes. The small Pro48 is made road-ready with 14 gauge steel in Radial's one-of-a-kind book-end design that offers protective zones around the switches and connectors. The internal welded I-beam construction assures outside stress will not torque the PC board thus assuring longer product life. The Pro48 is designed for high-use jobs wherever an active direct box is called for. A -15dB pad switch is provided to tame hot signal and expands the range of instrument preamps and the ground lift switch helps eliminate hum and buzz problems caused by ground loops. With exceptional sonic performance, sweet natural tone at an value-packed price, the Radial Pro48 truly represents a breakthrough in value!

I own 4 of these DI's, although I will be buying at least 2-4 more in the near future. They're great sounding, and they hold up to abuse on the road. These are my go-to active DI's for acoustic instruments and bass, and they work well on everything. I've owned 4 for about 4 years. They get used on a lot of low and high-profile shows without a single issue.
Wait, I had one issue. One of the plastic nuts on the 1/4" input connector came unscrewed and fell out. We found it rolling around backstage, reinstalled it and tightened up all of them, and it was no longer an issue. But other than that, no issues, ever.
this di has not worked well since I have owned it, the xlr connector is not good, the mic cord doesn't stay in and gets lots of static and crackling. would not purchase anything else from this company
