Class-A Circuitry

The Telefunken TDA-1 Active DI Box features an all-discrete Class-A FET circuit reminiscent of classic audio hardware. Crafted with modern components, the TDA-1 Active DI Box combines the best of both worlds for optimal audio quality and performance. The Class-A FET Circuitry brings the classic warmth and rich character associated with vintage units, while the modern components retain the natural tone and harmonic qualities of your instrument. The circuit board includes gold plated traces with through-hole components for optimal reliability.

Premium-Quality Components

In addition to the Class-A FET circuitry, the TDA-1 Active DI box features a range of high-grade components that drive the sound and tone of the box. At the heart of the TDA-1 is the custom-wound OEP/Carnhill output transformer for optimal signal integrity. The extended frequency range (20Hz – 70kHz) is designed to capture every nuance of your instrument, with extremely low distortion and low-noise. Each unit has been hand-tuned for the lowest distortion possible with a high input impedance for preventing the loading down of passive pickups. The circuit itself is powered from the built-in +48V Phantom Power with an LED indicator for indicating when the Phantom Power is in use.

Compact, Rugged Design

The compact yet highly rugged design of the Telefunken DA-1 Active DI box makes it ideal for both live and studio applications. The front-panel features a heavy duty metal toggle switch that allows you to choose between the -15dB pad and ground lift controls. The rugged aluminium enclosure is not only highly durable but is built for longevity, withstanding extending live use for prolonged periods. The switches and connectors are recessed for added protection and the WIMA, Nichicon and Panasonic capacitors all contribute to the high-end audio performance.
