    It's the same audio circuitry. I've added an extra 1/4" line out (unbalanced) that can be used simultaneously with the XLR. Also there's a front panel LED for power status, rather than the back panel lamp like on the first batch.

    Thanks. Useful changes, I'd say.

    I like DI2 best. Very nice balanced response and very rich in Harmonics, and a very nice dynamic at transients as well. The octave jumps seem to be very close in audible perception "average" of loudness level. A perfect sound to stay in the mix. And probably can be easily EQ'ed to sound similar like DI1 or DI2 which in opposite direction is probably difficult.

    Oh man. Number 3 sounds the best to my ears in both cases. Number two still sounds great with the jazz comparison. In the P comparison, however, both 1 and 2 sounded fine UNTIL I heard 3. Once you go 3 you never go back.

    As for guessing, 1 or 2 is direct to machine. And 3 is a DI. My initial instinct was that 1 was the machine, 2 was the REDDI and 3 was the P15 (because it sounds like a smiley eq).

    I like the first two and I think they would sit better in a mix. The third, as other have said has too much going on in the low and high end and I think it would get a bit lost in a mix, especially live were a lot of pa's have an over emphasised sub content as well as more high end than most bass cabs produce. Number 3 has the best bedroom tone though ;)

    Ah, man.. you added a fourth clip on the first page. I can't tell if clip 1 and clip 4 are similar just with a slight volume difference or if clip 4 is just more articulate; but clip 4 is my new favorite. It seems to just be there better than the others.

    I need the reveal!!!

    Alright here is the run down.
    DI 1 is the P Bass directly into the machine via 1/4 inch instrument cable.
    DI 2 is the REDDI with the level knob turned 3/4 up.
    DI 3 is the Broughton P-15 with the bass boosted, treble a hair passed noon and the volume is a hair passed eleven.
    DI 4 is the Broughton P-15 with the bass, treble and volume at noon @sratas :D

    Jazz Bass
    DI2 is the REDDI
    DI3 is the Broughton P-15 all controls set at noon

    Since I did not provide any guesses before, I will now say that this is EXACTLY what I predicted LOL :)

    Great job!

    Whoa! I'm really surprised by this.. I need to re-evaluate my life.

    Looks like I need a Broughton.

    It's interesting how many people had the REDDI pegged as the direct signal because it was their least favourite tone. When I'm around my head phones I should give 4 a listen to hear it without the bass boost. It's was way too much for my taste in the 3rd sample

    I'm really curious what @JimmyM thinks about these. I know he's a huge promoter of REDDI and Ampeg, so he probably really likes both.. but I wonder if he would have a favorite.

    Hello all, I just had to quickly come out of the shadows to say man the DI on that old Korg D12 sounds pretty damn good. I wonder what they're going for on Reverb or Ebay?... But seriously I may have to rethink my REDDI....

    Thanks 10cc!!!

    Wow, what a earthquake.

    The Reddi clips really do sound like meh to my ears, whereas the broughton sounds so present and forward, alive. I keep to hear a backed in eq, slight, but it's probably the inherent basic tone of the broughton. A very good feature from a recording point of view and then there are the tone controls for this.

    I am curious to hear comments from the big names who posted in the previous thread and own the Reddi, now that we have good material to discuss.
    For example jimmy, svtb15.
    Guys, you are welcome.
