I'm looking at a few at the moment. 1. Ampeg SCR-DI $250 USD 2. Darkglass Microtubes B7K Ultra V2 $450 USD 3. Mesa Boogie Subway Plus DI $400 USD Things that I prefer/need: 1. Clean bass tone, with the ability to easily switch from active to passive basses 2. Battery powered (all of my pedals use batteries to avoid hum) 3. Balanced XLR output (this will be sent to my recording interface so I can use a cab sim VST, and load IR's and mix, or adjust them easily) Any help and advice is appreciated, I am open to suggestions.
