Product Details

Talent HLZ1 Passive Direct Box

The Talent HLZ1 direct box converts high impedance, unbalanced audio signals to low impedance, balanced audio signals that are compatible with most XLR mixer or power amplifier inputs. The HLZ1's passive transformer circuitry requires no batteries or phantom power in order to operate, and the heavy-gauge steel enclosure will withstand years of handling and abuse.

Bi-directional functionality enables the Talent HLZ1 direct box to also be used as either a 1/4" high impedance to XLR low impedance converter, or an XLR low impedance to 1/4" high impedance converter; some additional adapter connectors or cables may be required. Set the attenuation switch to 0 dB when connecting the low level, high impedance signal from a guitar or other musical instrument. Choose the -20 dB setting for a keyboard, mixer, or line level component. At -40 dB, use the HLZ1 with a speaker level signal to feed the mixed sound from a guitar rig into the mixer.
