Behringer DI D120

Archived from groups: rec.audio.pro (More info?)

I'm looking for a good DI splitter for bass (1 line into avalon 737 the
other to stereo fx + stereo preamp or amp). Is this a decent choice? It's
cheap so I am a little suspect. Someone here once mentioned a Jonathon
Little, but I can't find a vendor that sells it or a website? Any help
appreciated.

Thanks,

Neil R

    We have 3 DI100's and they've never left us down. But this 120 seems
    pretty nifty.

    However, for what you're doing, you've got a pair of high impedance
    units you're going into, and if you're on a budget, I see no reason to
    rule out good old parallel connection. A simple 1/4" Y cable may do
    all you want unless the the AValon and the fx unit need a balanced
    input. This would be especially true if your bass is active.

    Best Regards,

    737's have high and low inputs.

    I have some behringer di's and they work fine for me but I never had to
    use one on my 737's.

    Here you go:

    http://www.mercenary.com/littlelabs.html

    PCP Instrument Distro, only $1050. A little more than a Behringer
    direct box, I'm afraid.

    You might want to take advantage of the Avalong 737 and split its
    output (you can use an simple Y cable at the output level and
    impedance) off to "reamp" box which will look like a guitar to an amp
    or stomp box. There's the genuine Reamp, and Radial has one, which is
    also a buffered splitter, so you could use it to feed the Avalong if
    that sounds better to you.

    You already have an excellent DI: the Avalon 737. Split its output to
    the FX and amp.

    The Behringer DI20 is not bad, for the price. To use it between your
    bass and the Avalon 737 would be like filtering your Champagne through
    an old sock. Believe me, it won't make it better!
