This is a good DI the sound is goos and I really wanted a stereo DI taht wouldn't break the bank. While it is also not too cheap in price - you get what you pay for - it is quite good and quite good sounding. The case is also quite solid. I think it is extruded aluminum. The only thing I don't like about it is that the 1/4" sockets seem a bit too loose, and while I haven't had any problem with them coming undone, I have to keep an eye on it.
