Custom Transformer

One of the most unique features of this DI box is the custom STL transformer designed and incorporated by Samson to deliver the highest-quality signal for the best possible audio. The MD1's balanced output gives you a clean signal which is less likely to encounter noise like an unbalanced line connection, meaning you can run cables for longer without any drop in audio quality.

Versatile, Streamlined Design

This DI Box is simple in design but highly versatile with a range of premium quality components resulting in superb audio quality and performance. As well as the custom transformers the MD1 features a Thru Jack connection that lets you take the signal from the input and route the signal to an amplifier or monitor without affecting the original signal. This minimises the need for external equipment such as miking guitar amplifiers depending on your live sound requirements. The box is also highly durable and ideal for live applications with its 14-gauge noise-reducing steel chassis. This chassis is designed to withstand the rigors of extended use and transportation in live situations ensuring a quiet and reliable performance. With no phantom or battery power required, this DI Box can be set-up and ready to go within seconds.
