Help choosing a DI for tracking synths

I just purchased the AMS-Neve 1073 DPA, which should be here Wed. Anyway, I was thinking about picking up the Radial JDI Duplex (passive DI) to run my synths though and then to the mic input on the 1073 DPA (since the 1073 dpa doesn't have an onboard DI). Does anyone know anything about this unit or is there a better unit out there for my needs. I've been hearing good things about the Desk Doctor, Reddi, and the Avalon U5 but they are a bit more pricey.

Also, I'm a bit confussed about the difference between active an passive DI's in terms of sound quality. Should I be looking for an active DI or a passive DI to track synths into the 1073 DPA?

Thanks.

Why didn't you just get something like the Aurora GTQ which has built in DI inputs AND EQ for less money?
