BSS AR-133, Active Direct Injection (DI) box  (1 - 5 pcs.)

The BSS AR-133 unit includes a phantom power and battery supplies as standard. Should the phantom power from the console fail or be accidentally switched off, the BSS AR-133 automatically switches over to the internal 9V battery providing uniterrupted use. The BSS AR-133 unit is housed in a rugged aluminum extrusion case, with robust polyurethane end-cheeks which give the BSS AR-133 a very distinctive look. The Input connectors are both 1/4" jack sockets and an XLR socket, the latter meaning that the BSS AR-133 can be used to convert unbalanced signals to a balanced output on XLR's throughout. The arched case allows cables to run back underneath the unit from the end for neat cable management. Input attenuation is 0, -20 or -40dB, making the box suitable for instrument, line or amplifier levels on inputs. On the output side, a ground-lift switch is provided for quick solutions to ground-loop problems.

The BSS AR-133 uses an upgraded version of the same audio path as the AR-116, now regarded by many people as a reference standard. The sound quality of the BSS AR-133 is legendary, particularly on acoustic and bass guitars. Numerous applications can be satisfied by the AR-133. For example, as well as the traditional guitar use, the AR-133 can be used with keyboards, DJ consoles, amplifier outputs, and other electronic sources. An additional bonus is the ability to use the AR-133 as an active balancing device.
