    I'm interested in finding the best DI Box... And a local engineer mentioned the Radial J-48 was the best for the $. Has anyone ever tried it?


    I have tried:

    The Countryman
    Aguilar's DB900
    Behringer's DI Box
    SansAmp BDDI

    To me the Countryman and the Aggie were the most solid built and good for the $.

    Thought? Experiences?

    I just bought one a few weeks ago and have gigged with it.

    It's the most solid, well-built piece of equipment on earth. It doesn't load down passive basses and cannot be pushed into clipping by active basses (in my experience).

    I got mine for $215 CDN so it's pricier than most boxes, but you won't regret it.

    good 'ol USA/Tampa fla.
    It's proably the best thing out there as far as DI'S are concern (check out Behringer DI'S also) I loved mine when I had it but I sold it because I 'm going to get the Avalon U5 DI in a few days,but all of the Radial Engineering components is good stuff.
