Great, solid DI box!

First off, Sweetwater got this DI to my door in 3 days! Holy smokes that was FAST! Anyway, it afforded me a three day weekend to play around with this bad boy of a DI box. I purchased it for an upcoming recording. I needed the ability to record two guitar heads AND a direct signal at once. This guy handles it with no signal loss what-so-eva!!! I was able to plug guitar in, run the "thru" to each amp's input, and the xlr to my interface, and hit record! Doesn't get any easier to use. I couldn't find any other DI that had two (2) thru AND a XLR out! No I have the ability to record three takes of a single performance and them blend or choose which recorded sound I like best, AND/OR use any guitar software plugin (EZ mix2, Amplitube, Ampire, etc) after the musician has gone home to get the best possible tone for each recording!!!
