    I've had some cash come my way (birthday) and a little bit more coming (Christmas), and I really want to buy a dedicated (not a Sansamp BDDI, no EQ, just a DI) box for recording and live use. Something very road worthy, as noiseless as possibile, and compact enough that I can toss it in my gigbag. Any reccomendations?

    The Countryman is always a fair choice.

    Rapco also makes a knock-off version, but I forget the name. I've had my Rapco version for several years, and it was years old when I got it. It's probably 15 years old, and worked great until it got abused at a festival last year.

    Yeah, Countryman Type 85 +1

    Whirlwind Hot Box is decent too.

    The Radial stuff is good too, JD48 and the JDI

    I always carry around an Apex ADI-1 (Yorkville) just in case...it's about $40 or so. The active version is more expensive. I think Yorkville also still has YDIs available as well. Good rugged boxes, definitely in the price range you're looking at.
