    I just bought a (barely) used SBDDI without a manual or powersupply. A few Q's:

    -can I power this thing with a Boss/Ibanez-style wallwart?

    -what does the Phantom & Ground Connect switch do, and where do I set it to use the box as a pre-amp going into my Peavey Combo 300?

    -would anyone care to share favorite settings?

    -i can't find the Users Manual online - would anyone mind scanning theirs & emailing it or posting it? I'm at jkeller@cinci.rr.com & have a cable connection

    Thanks,

    Cb

    phantom power means: if the mixing board/console has phantom power it sends voltage out thru the XLR cable to power the DI box,translation- no need for a 9volt,you can use a 9 volt battery ,you have to remove the bottom cover ,i have the manual i will scan and post some settings....i find the ampeg svt setting works best for me..:D

    ...I found the Tech21 website url via Google, but I guess their server is down, because I'm unable to connect to any of the links that turned up on Google.

    I'll keep trying...

    You can use a Boss 9V wall wart. My brother uses one for his GT-2.
