I've used it 4 times now, three times with DI and once using the 1/4" output before a different DI, and I an't hear any difference in it. It seems like a really good DI, so if yours is giving you problems, you might want to exchange it.
I will say that when i turned up either the input or output volume controls much past 1:00 I got some distortion I wasn't happy with, but it still has a strong enough signal that it give plenty of headroom for whatever system I'm going into.
