Simon Systems DB-1A

Active Direct Box
MFR# DB-1A

Product Description

The Simon Systems DB-1A is the ultimate in direct insertion capability. For too long, the direct box has been the "weak link" in the professional audio chain. The DB-1A changes that. The DB-1A does not use nor require phantom power (even though it can be connected to phantom powered systems), and therefore is not limited to the constraints of phantom powered designs. It utilizes state-of-the-art design techniques that cannot be found in conventional direct boxes, active or passive. The DB-1A boasts a totally active transformerless audio path. Therefore, there is no insertion loss (unless the attenuation mode is used). Conventional DIs typically have 12dB or more insertion loss. The line-level output mode allows direct insertion into tape decks, bypassing mic pre-amps and mixing consoles completely. The DB-1A has incredible headroom, more than most mixing consoles!* With the variable line and attenuation trim, you can convert - 10dB signals to +4dB and vice-versa. Best of all the DB-1A is competitively priced. Test and compare with any other DI and we are sure you will agree;

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.
