TELEFUNKEN Debuts four new Direct Boxes at AES (TDA-1, TDA-2, TD-1, TD-2)
 
1 Attachment(s)

TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is introducing four new direct boxes at AES, including mono and dual models of both active FET and passive designs.

The TELEFUNKEN TDA-1 (mono) and TDA-2 (dual) are newly designed active FET direct boxes that employ discrete Class-A FET circuitry coupled with a high quality transformer that provides the perfect balance between clean, high headroom performance and warm, saturated tone.

The TELEFUNKEN TD-1 (mono) and TD-2 (dual) are new passive direct box designs that combine premium quality components with a rugged construction to create a reliable DI with rich, warm tone.

In the heart of each new TELEFUNKEN direct box design are custom-wound output transformers by OEP/Carnhill, made in the UK. The circuit boards feature gold-plated traces for maximum conductivity and are hand-assembled exclusively with through-hole components providing a secure and reliable connection compared to common surface-mount technology.

The circuits are housed in an extremely durable extruded aluminum enclosure with recessed heavy-duty metal toggle switches to engage a -15 dB pad and ground lift. The rugged construction is virtually indestructible, able to easily withstand the wear and tear of gigging. The simple and elegant design approach delivers a new standard in reliability and performance for direct boxes.

Can I use your TD-1 Passive Mono DI plugged into the line inputs of my Sound Devices 633? Or does it need the mic inputs? Love to purchase your passive DI box for use with the line inputs on the SD 633 and keep it's mic inputs available for microphones needing phantom power.
Thank you and keep up the great work

Depends on the signal source you're plugging in to. Direct boxes are primarily impedance matching devices and do not provide gain in the way that a preamp does. If you are using a keyboard with a relatively high output level you will probably be fine connecting through our DI straight to your line inputs. On the other end, a low-level acoustic guitar pickup will definitely need the gain from a mic input.

Thanks for your question and the support!

Very interesting...

how does your active DI box compare to the RNDI Rupert Neve DI for tone quality etc?

Need a DI box for a keyboard on stage; was going to get the Radial box but after being blown away on their drum mics and the great review on TapeOp, I decided we will buy the Telefunken. Will report back here on how well it goes.
