Telefunken Passive Mono DI

Passive mono direct box design combining premium quality components with a rugged construction for rich, warm tone
MFR# TDP-1

Product Description

The Telefunken Active Mono DI is a new passive direct box design that combines premium quality components with a rugged construction to create a reliable DI with rich, warm tone. Utilizing an OEP/Carnhill transformer made in the UK, mated with a simple “less is best” design approach, Telefunken passive DIs provide superior vibe and character to best complement the natural tone and feel of your instrument.

The high quality audio transformer is just one of the premium design elements in the TD Series direct boxes. The PCBs are all 100% hand-assembled exclusively with through-hole components to provide a much more secure and reliable connection compared to common surface-mount technology. All circuit traces are gold-plated for maximum conductivity over the life of the product. High input impedance prevents the loading down of passive pickups. The frequency response of the circuit is ±2 dB from 10 Hz to 40 kHz, with extremely low distortion and self-noise figures.

The circuit is housed in an extremely durable extruded aluminum enclosure with recessed switches and connectors. This rugged construction is virtually indestructible, able to easily withstand the wear and tear of gigging. Each channel features two heavy duty metal toggle switches to engage a -15 dB pad and ground lift.

The Telefunken passive DI design is your new go-to reliable, high quality direct box. The simple and elegant design approach yields a harmonically rich low-end with a detailed and open high end that delivers a new standard in reliability and performance for direct boxes.

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.
Phil T.
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.

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.
