BAE Audio, a manufacturer of premium analogue gear, has announced its brand new, passive direct injection box, PDI. Like many of the company’s coveted preamps, this unique DI utilizes a brand new transformer design to lend any signal passed through it a pleasingly warm analog richness.

“At BAE Audio we are all too familiar with the magic that a high-quality transformer can bring to an audio signal,” says BAE Audio CEO Mark Loughman. “Many DI boxes on the market will make your direct signal sound a bit sterile, but the PDI gives you a mix-ready sound for guitar, bass, keyboards, or just about any other instrument. Whether you choose that sound in the mix as-is, or route it to outboard gear or amplifiers for additional manipulation, the PDI is a great tool for adding life to your direct sources.”

The PDI is priced economically for both project studios as well as professional musicians & features Neutrik connectors, including a quarter-inch input & low-impedance XLR output one side, with dual audio through outputs on the reverse side. This allows unique routing configurations, like sending a guitar signal both via the Lo-Z output to a console as well as via the dual Hi-Z through outputs to two separate amplifiers. A ground lift switch helps tame any ground loop issues on the fly.

The PDI’s new transformer design is a key component to its remarkably musical sonic signature & features a similar timeless circuit design that is present in its other vintage rack gear found in top studios around the world. Warmth & clarity in the high end & ear-pleasing harmonics from the low end are some of the characteristics of the PDI’s transformer that help make this little box an indispensable piece of the studio puzzle.

Hand-assembled in California like all BAE Audio products, the PDI features a gold-plated PCB and 100% through-hole components for maximum signal integrity. Recessed switches & connectors combine with a rugged steel chassis to help it stand up to the beating of daily studio or stage use. Please click here to ask a question
