    A good direct box can make all the difference in the world in terms of the accuracy of the audio it passes. This is a GREAT DI and the most ruggedly built I've ever seen.

    Well Impressed !!

    I have been through many DI boxes in my time but was definatly blown away by BSS DI active box.

    The signal is so clean and gives a nice punchy full sound with my tanglewood jumbo semi acoustic.

    Definatly worth the money a top class DI box.

    Amazing what a great DI sounds like!

    I had been using my ISA One pre DI and a SansAmp Bass DI with unsatisfactory results. I thought it was my bass that just sounded poor but once I plugged this in I was very impressed. It was between this and the Radial J48, both of which were rate highly. I went with the AR-133 because it was $30 less and never read a bad thing about it. The option of 3 different db pads along with the ability to plug the speaker outputs of any amplifier directly into the AR-133 to run into my DAW was a bonus. Great DI, great sound, great price.

    BSS - AR133

    I've been using this DI at work, corporate AV, for about 2 years now. It is as solid as a rock, both in design and performance. I really like the XLR input. This feature has saved my butt many times from the mysterious buzzes in house PA systems. This box uses very little power as well. I think that I can get about a month or two out of a single 9V.
