Perfect Solution to a Unique ProblemThis IO device helped solve a long-standing issue in our situation. We had tried to go wireless is sending a signal from the computer/presentation software to our mixer and amp which was some 50 feet away due to our site requirements.
We had outside interference that we dealt with from time to time...unacceptable.
The Radial ProAV2 immediately and completely solved that problem. With the advice of Jeff our service advisor we now have an installation with zero problematic issues. Thanks so much

A very handy boxI bought this DI mainly for its 1/4" inputs to tame one of my samplers -- I use the Roland SP404 and SP555 and they tend to be quite hot -- and I've found that the additional RCA and 1/8" inputs also come in very handy for a bunch of other devices. The D2 is great too, but for a couple more bucks the AV2 really can come in handy.

the BEST DII'm a huge fan of Radial's stuff. First of all, it looks sexy, and is sturdy and well designed. Their DI's are always clean and sound great. On this one i especially appreciated the multiple inputs (RCA, stereo 1/8") and the ground lift and pad switches.

Love it!This is the piece if you interface to computers without a soundcard. I've used other PC DI boxes for getting sound out of a Mac or PC and always seem to battle some kind of buzz or noise issue that other DI boxes can't eliminate. The Pro AV2 has not failed me yet. This is clear proof that you get what you pay for. The other plus is its weight. In my field, I have a workspace of video and audio interfaces and cables running everywhere. Cheap DI boxes tend to slide around if cables are tugged or computers are shifted - Not the Pro AV2... It's a brick! So nice not to have to gaff tape something down.

Radial Pro AV2It is just as advertised, a great DI for laptop, Ipad, Ipod, and DVD audio. It also works great if you need to use a CD player that only has RCA outs.

Highly recommended and now I know why.This was recommended to us by the sound experts who installed our sound system at our church.
This DI replaced 2 mono DI boxes we had hooked up through the 3.5mm phono output to 1/4" connectors from our iMac to a Yamaha digital soundboard in our church system.
Prior to hooking up this box, we always had radio interference from a local radio station that came through a groundloop created by the stereo hookup. We also had signifcant distortion from the sound of the computer if the volume output was set at even a modest level.
When I opened the box I was immediately impressed by how sturdy and rugged this DI box felt.
We plugged it and immediately the groundloop disappeared. The pad function allowed us to run the computer audio at full volume in order to make it error proof and the sound quality greatly improved.
With as many distractions as there are with volunteers running sound in a challenging sanctuary environment it's nice to know we have one less thing to worry about.

Great so far.Bought this last minute for a tour as a' just in case'. Have used it over and over in every possible configuration. No issues. a bit expensive as far as passive DI's go-but I know it will work.

punchDidn't think that a passsive DI box could deliver.. but now my backgrounds have the fullness, punch and gain that I'm used to hearing.
The ipad just doesn't have the nessesary gain needed to power a pro system without help. The Pro AV2 has given me what I was listening for.
