Radial Engineering ships new JDI mk3 Duplex direct box.
COQUITLAM, BC, CANADA, August 10TH, 2001 Radial Engineering is proud
to commence shipment of the JDI mk3 Duplex, a true dual channel direct
box for stereo sources such as keyboards.
Duplex features a Jensen transformer on each channel for virtually no
phase deviation, combined with exceptionally high signal handling capacity.
Signal capacity is critical for wide band instruments such as keyboards
that tend to get lost in the mix when competing with bass, guitars
new JDI mk3 and the original JDI, This Jensen transformer equipped direct box all but eliminates phase distortion, which is present on many competing products. As Radial Production
Manager Jim Andrews puts it: "We believe that phase distortion is
probably the most under-rated issue with respect to achieving uncolored
sound. The Duplex is less than 4º off and less than .5 dB away
from being perfectly linear from 5Hz to 80kHz."
input/thru-put jacks on each of the 2 channels for typical instrument
to amplifier feed through, plus an innovative 'merge' function on each
channel that allows two inputs to be mixed to mono. This allows two
stereo sources or four mono sources to only use two channels, valuable
when mono point-source systems are employed.
features on each channel include a 15dB input pad, a polarity reverse, ground lift and a speaker
level input with low pass filter circuit which emulates the sound
of a typical guitar amplifier. The JDI Duplex may also be used to convert
consumer stereo signal levels to balanced mic levels for long cable runs.
JDI mk3 Duplex is housed in a 14 gauge steel frame, with recessed switches
to reduce opportunity for damage. Dual ¼" input/thru-put
combination and balanced XLR output connectors are provided. A no-slip
full bottom pad allows JDI's to be stacked, and prevents ground contamination
through chassis to chassis contact.
