For any live performance, it is essential to have a low-noise, high-quality, and robust direct input box. The Mackie MDB series offers this premium package, but without the price tag. Available in 4 different editions, this series of DI boxes offer the premium sound quality with durable constructions, with different levels of inputs and outputs for varying live complexity.

MDB-1A edition is an active DI box, offering higher headroom for even more low-noise and distortion free performance; ultra-sensitivity. With a balanced male XLR output and a high-impedance ¼” input, it carries the channels you require for classic live applications. It has -20dB pad ensuring even higher distortion-free performance when using high level sources, which when combined with its Built-Like-A-Tank™ construction, it proves to be the most durable and versatile DI box one can need. This edition also carries the speciality of being powered by 48v Phantom power and has a merge switch allowing connection of stereo sources which are summed to mono at the output, perfect for stereo sources.
