So I'm sure there is alot of info available through searches about DI's, but my specific question is: I'm wanting to get a really nice sounding DI. in addition to regular club/venue gigs, I do alot of work with a guy where I'm playing bass unaccompanied, and a great sounding DI would go a long way for me in that setting. The ones I've been looking at are the Reddi, U5, TD100, and the JDV. So the question is: is it really worth shelling out a few extra hundred bucks for one of the boutique units, versus, getting a passive radial, or one of the other approx. $200 units. The turn off for the u5 and the reddi is the size and weight, but I'm willing to lug it if its worth it tonally. thats where your input comes in. So whats the deal, is it worth shelling out, or is it a matter of diminishing returns at that price point? I appreicate any advice or suggestions, thanks!
