Possibly the world’s finest passive direct box, the Radial JDI brings unprecedented sonic transparency and simplicity.

The Radial JDI is a phase coherent, passive direct box employing a nickel laminated Jensen® audio transformer with virtually zero phase distortion, huge dynamics handling and ruler flat response from 10Hz to 40kHz. The Radial JDI is quite simply the world’s finest passive direct box. With its heavy-duty steel shell and internal I-beam construction, the JDI is designed to work dependably for years in even the harshest of touring environments. Ideal for keyboards, bass and acoustic instruments of all kinds.

Features
Jensen Transformer equipped passive DI
Eliminates hum and buzz from ground loops
Virtually zero phase & harmonic distortion
Exceptional signal handling and noise rejection

Pure Sound of the Instrument
The Radial JDI is a passive direct box designed to handle extreme signal levels without distortion of any kind. At the heart, the Radial JDI employs the world class Jensen JT-DB-EPC audio transformer delivering a smooth, warm sounding Bessel curve, reminiscent of the finest vintage gear. Ruler flat from 10Hz to 40kHz and with virtually zero phase deviation, the JDI delivers the natural, pure sound of the instrument without artifact. By its no-power passive design, the Radial JDI performs both high-to-low impedance conversion and signal balancing over a magnetic bridge that passes signal while rejecting stray DC voltage. This makes the JDI particularly adept at eliminating hum and buzz caused by ground loops.

Radial JDI Applications

JDI with Electric Bass
The JDI is often selected for high output bass guitars. It is able to handle huge signal levels without distortion or artifacts. On stage it sends the pure sound of the bass to the PA with minimal loading. In studio, it is perfect for recording direct.

JDI with Acoustic Guitar
Most acoustic guitars have built-in preamps that can be peaky. The JDI naturally smoothes out the transients for a warmer tone. And because the JDI is able to handle huge transients, it will not distort. This makes the JDI a great direct box for acoustic guitars.

JDI with Keyboards
Today’s digital keyboards are not only very dynamic, some like digital pianos have a tremendously wide frequency response. The Radial JDI is able to withstand excessive signal levels at all frequencies without introducing distortion or phase shift.
