Mic pre's with DI for '500' rack list

Does any one have a list handy that mentions all the Mic Pre's with a DI that is compatible with a lunch box?

Thanks in advance, Oli

All of them, really. Just what comes to mind at this moment:

API 512C, BAE 312A, Purple Biz, A-Designs P-1 and entire EM series, Shadow Hills Mono Gamma, and (I think) Buzz Elixir.

Best o' luck...

yes the elixir has a DI, and it kicks ass on bass i actually liked it better than the OSA L3 for this application, which a lot of people think is a wonderful bass DI.

For bass D.I., I like the 512c. Also the Great River, but that's not a 500 form pre. Have ordered a couple BAE 312A and am interested to see how it functions as a bass D.I., as well.

All 500 series pres come standard with a DI, with the exception of OSA, which is an added feature, except for the L3.....IIRC.

BTW, I dig the A-Designs P1 for bass DI!! Shadow Hills Mono Gama is pretty nice too.

Check out Eisen Audio. Jens can custom build a 500 pre to your specs, or send you a DIY kit. OSA L3 is nice on bass. It seems to have a controlled high end, which minimizes fret noise, at least compared to a P1 or EM Blue, which are definitely sizzly up top.
