Countryman Type 10 DI Box

Single channel active direct box
MFR# DT10

Product Description

The Countryman Type 10 DI box is the ideal counterpart to the classic Type 85, combining the exceptional ruggedness and versatility of the Type 85 with an advanced design that sets a new standard for pure performance.

Most direct box designs must make difficult tradeoffs with your sound: ultra-low distortion can only be attained by increasing input noise; true ground isolation means high phase deviation or signal attenuation.  The Type 10 takes a radically new approach, with an analog circuit that tunes itself to deliver your sound with the lowest distortion, lowest noise, and highest accuracy of any direct box.  The result is a clean, precise sound that is completely faithful to the original.

Outstanding Performance
The Type 10 achieves the highest SNR, lowest phase deviation, and lowest distortion of any DI.  Some boxes achieve low distortion over a narrow range of frequencies and levels, but end up coloring the low frequencies and distorting loud signals.  The Type 10 maintains exceptionally low THD and IMD across the entire audio band, and for a wide range of input voltages, rendering your sound with extremely high fidelity.

Frequency Response:

  • 10Hz - 50kHz (+/- 1dB)


Deviation from Linear Phase:

  • +2 deg (30 Hz)
  • 0 deg (100 Hz - 20 kHz)
  • Noise (short input, 22 Hz - 20 kHz):
  • 1.8 micro-Volts rms


THD (1Vpp, typical load):

  • < 0.001% at 1 kHz
  • < 0.005% (30 Hz - 20 kHz)


IMD (1Vpp, typical load):

  • < 0.005% (10 kHz/60 Hz, 4:1)


Max Input (1% THD):

  • 6 Vpp (0 dB pad)
  • 33 Vpp (-15 dB pad)
  • 190 Vpp (-30 dB pad)


Indestructible
Like the Type 85, the Type 10 is armored inside and out, with a molded core wrapped in an extra thick architectural alumininum housing.  The switches and connectors are fully recessed.  The electronics are just as tough—both the Type 10 and the Type 85 shrug off static spikes and will survive with the input connected directly to 110V or 220V line voltage.

Versatile
We understand that conditions on the road are not always ideal—noisy electrical systems, mix boards positioned across a stadium with low input impedance and low or no phantom power for your box.  The Type 10 has rock solid isolation and is designed to drive any board across hundreds of feet of cable whether or not you have phantom power.  That means that whatever environment you’re in, your sound will be consistently great.

Pure and Simple
The legendary Type 85 achieves greatness partly through its simplicity: no unnecessary roll-off switches or EQ options.  With the new Type 10, we kept it simple while adding some new features that we think can really help you on the road.  Handle sizzling hot outputs from active keyboards using the -15 dB pad with virtually immeasurable distortion. Use the edge of a coin to access the battery.  Check the battery voltage and monitor the quality of the phantom power with the flip of a switch.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
