Product Details

ART AV DIRECT Multi-Input Audio/Video Direct Box

The AV Direct is the ideal input solution for any application where stereo iPods, laptop computers, consumer DVD players, consumer HiFi equipment or video machines have to be connected to a single XLR microphone level input. Unlike standard gender-bender cables or DI boxes, the AV Direct can accept virtually any input connection and output level (including amplified speaker outputs) and offers remote level control, ideal for setting the volume of your component at the source, rather than in and AV room, audio closet or installation rack.

The AV Direct has stereo RCA, 1/8" and 1/4" TRS line level inputs, as well as a 1/4" and bare wire pressure clip speaker level inputs. A switchable 4.8 kHz high cut filter, ground lift and variable level control allow the AV Direct to effectively filter out any extraneous unwanted noise while offering variable volume control at source. The speaker level inputs are heavily padded and transformer isolated from the XLR output, allowing amplified speaker level (up to 100 watts @ 8 ohms) to be tapped off, and sent to a microphone level input. A 20 Hz to 20 kHz frequency response ensures the AV Direct will function seamlessly with any high quality audio source.

ART AV DIRECT Multi-Input Audio/Video Direct Box
ART AV DIRECT Multi-Input Audio/Video Direct Box is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice box, good mix of featuresThis box is a real winner on features and performance versus price. In selecting a AV/laptop/MP3 player interface box, it's really a good idea to pick by the feature set that you need, and they vary greatly between manufacturers and models.Big pluses for this model (if the features are important to you).1) 1/8" (3.5 mm) input for easy connection to MP3 players and laptops with a "straight" cable.2) Stereo pair RCA inputs, which combine to the mono output.3) Mono output (and ONLY a mono output) to keep channel count down.4) speaker level input, if you need it. (I didn't, and am unlikely to ever need it.)5) a volume control on the box, which goes all the way to a click-stop "off" position. This is quite handy for easy volume control by a presenter, etc.6) Mic level output, which should be compatible with every mixer you might encounter.Some limitations:1) No stereo output is available, if you need it.2) The 1/4" input is a stereo TRS connector-- the second 1/4" connector you see in the pictures is for a speaker level input. Although proper cables are available for this, it's a "special purpose" cable that isn't likely to already be in your kit. (I work for a professional sound company, with large work trunks full of "just in case" adapters and cabling, and I've never even considered a need for carrying the cable that this box needs to accept stereo 1/4" inputs.)3) No line level output, if you need same.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value and decent sound qualityThis box works well for connecting iPods and other stereo un-balanced line-level sources to a monaural, balanced microphone input (on a mixing console or mixer / amp. I would not use it for critical listening, but it is much less expensive than the PC-DI (from Whirlwind) and the built-in, adjustable attenuator is a nice touch. The speaker input is also a plus at this price level, though I have not tried it personally.
