Radial JDV™ Active Super Direct Box

Part No. R800 2010


100% discrete class-A active direct box

Feed forward design – no negative feedback

Drag Control load correction for natural tone

Huge 30-Volt rails for exceptional headroom

The Radial JDV is arguably the very best direct box ever made. It is able to handle any type of instrument with ease, reproduces the sound with the utmost accuracy and least coloration, and is equipped with all of the connectivity you will ever need whether you are performing on stage or recording in the studio.

The active design begins with 100% discrete class-A circuitry for absolute signal purity while eliminating troublesome zero-cross distortion. But unlike all other buffering amplifiers, the JDV does not employ any phase-cancelling negative feedback loops to stabilize the circuit. Instead, a tube-like configuration with proprietary stabilizers delivers the true sound of the instrument without artefact or hype.

To address electric bass and guitar, the JDV is equipped with Drag Control that enables you to correct the load of the instrument as if connected directly to an amplifier. For piezo instruments, the input can be switched to 4meg-ohms to eliminate squawk. And with 30 volt internal rails, even the most dynamic digital sampler or active bass can be handled with ease. Features separate outputs for the PA, monitors, amps and tuner making it stage and studio ready.

How does it sound? When one musician proclaimed: The JDV is the best sounding DI I have ever heard. We replied: No… it's your bass… you've just never heard it before.

The JDV… There is no other like it anywhere or at any price.

JDI™ Passive Direct Box

Part No. R800 1010


Jensen Transformer equipped passive DI

Eliminates hum and buzz from ground loops

Virtually zero phase & harmonic distortion

Exceptional signal handling and noise rejection

The Radial JDI is a passive direct box designed to handle extreme signal levels without distortion of any kind. Unlike an active DI that is limited by the buffering amplifier’s rail voltage, the JDI employs a Jensen audio transformer as the engine. Jensen transformers are legendary in their ability to gracefully handle transients while delivering a smooth, warm sounding Bessel curve, reminiscent of the finest vintage gear. Ruler flat from 10Hz to 40kHz and with virtually zero phase deviation, the JDI delivers the natural, pure sound of the instrument without artifact.

The 100% passive circuitry inside the JDI is incredibly efficient. The transformer performs both high-to-low impedance conversion and signal balancing at the same time with minimal loading and does so without any power whatsoever. The transformer also introduces a magnetic bridge that passes signal while rejecting stray DC voltage. This makes the JDI particularly adept at eliminating hum and buzz caused by ground loops.

Features include input and throughput ¼” connectors, -15dB input pad, ground lift, and 180º degree polarity reverse to help phase align the instrument with the PA. A secondary circuit is added for direct interfacing with high output devices such as guitar or bass amp loudspeakers plus a unique merge function allows stereo sources such as keyboards to be summed mono, saving valuable input channels.

Built tough to handle the abuse of live touring, the JDI features a 14-gauge steel I-beam inner frame and a unique book-end outer shell. The innovative design eliminates stress on the PCB, reducing opportunity for solder joints to go ‘cold’ while the outer shell creates a protective zone around the switches and connectors. The steel casing resists noise-causing electromagnetic pollution and the transformer’s sensitive inner workings are further protected from magnetic fields with a mu-metal can. This ensures the signal transfer is quiet and free from hum.

These combined features have made the Radial JDI the most popular passive direct box in professional touring and an excellent choice for instrument interface in the studio!

The Radial JDI… the world's finest passive direct box.


Radial SB5 Laptop Di £92.50 - In stock now





The Radial Stage Bug SB-5 is a compact stereo direct box designed to accommodate laptop computers, tablets and other consumer audio products when amplifying the signal through a PA system.


  1. Stereo direct box for laptop computer

  2. Integral 1.5m cable with sidewinder cleat

  3. Transformer isolation eliminates noise

  4. Plug & play easy to use – no power required

The passive design begins with an integrated input cable that connects from the headphone out via a flexible 1.5m (5') cable that is terminated with a standard 3.5mm (1/8") stereo connector. The cable is secured via a clamping strain relief and is wrapped using the sidewinder cleat for easy storage. This of course eliminates having to locate a cable making it easier to deploy in fast paced work environments. Inside, the signal is sent to a pair of custom wound transformers where the impedance is lowered and the signal is balanced for long cable runs - upwards to 100 meters (300'). Transformers further benefit by isolating the computer from the PA system to help eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops. This is augmented with a ground lift switch to further reduce ground contamination.


A choice of output connectors is available including a stereo set of ¼" TRS jacks for full stereo operation or an XLR out that automatically sums the left-right program material to mono. This can save valuable channels on the PA system and makes setup easier in situations where full stereo reproduction is not required. A -15dB input pad may be engaged to reduce sensitivity and enable extra high output sources to be connected without distortion.


These features combine to make the SB-5 the perfect tool-kit DI for the AV technician, media manager or traveling musician equipped with a computer.



Radial SB2 Bass Di


Product Overview

The Radial StageBug SB-2 Passive is a high-performance direct box made for players who are on the move! Made to fit inside of a guitar case, the SB-2 is ultra compact yet is feature-packed to ensure great performance on any stage.


  1. Passive DI for bass, acoustic and keyboard

  2. Ultra compact to fit in your guitar case

  3. Plug & play easy to use feature set

  4. Transformer isolation eliminates noise

The compact design begins with a ¼" input and thru-put to feed the on-stage amp. This connects to the custom made Eclipse ET-DB3 transformer which performs the impedance matching and balances the signal. When using extra high output instruments, a -15dB pad can be inserted into the signal path. This enables the SB-2 to be used with active basses and digital pianos that often tend to overload the input side of the interface. An innovative stereo-to-mono merge function provides a convenient way to connect stereo keyboards and computers without having to reset the source for mono operation, saving time and input channels on the PA. The SB-2 output features an XLR wired to the AES standard with pin-2 hot.


Once connected, the SB-2 delivers a smooth warm sound reminiscent of older vintage gear. The Eclipse ET-DB3 transformer is magical in its ability to handle extreme signal levels with a natural compression that is pleasing to the ears. The transformer also helps eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops by isolating the input from the output. This is augmented with a ground lift switch that lifts pin-1 on the XLR for quiet, professional results.


These features make the StageBug SB-2 a great choice for electric bass, acoustic guitar and keyboards where small size and big performance matters!



Radial SB1 Acoustic Di




Product Overview

The Radial SB-1 Acoustic is a high-performance active direct box made for players that are on the move. Made to fit inside a guitar case, the SB-1 is the smallest Radial DI box ever! But don't let the small size deter... this ultra-compact StageBug sounds absolutely terrific!


  1. Active direct box for acoustic guitar

  2. Ultra compact to fit in your guitar case

  3. Plug & play easy to use feature set

  4. 48V phantom powered, no batteries needed!

The design begins with standard ¼" instrument input with a thru-put to feed your tuner or your on-stage amp. The ultra quiet active circuit at once converts the signal from high to low impedance to reduce susceptibility to noise, buffers it and then balances the signal for long runs to the PA system. And with 48 volt phantom powering, the SB-1 does not require batteries or external supply to make it work. You simply plug in and you are set to go!


The active circuit features a carefully selected 220k-ohm input impedance to eliminate problems with loading while delivering a smooth, warm sound to the audio system. This is particularly important when interfacing vintage guitars with low output pickups when should you plan to do some recording or Reamping. The SB-1 is also equipped with a -15dB pad that reduces the input sensitivity to gracefully handle even the loudest instruments. This makes the SB-1 perfectly well suited for electric bass and keyboards. To reduce feedback, toggling the 180° polarity switch helps eliminate hot spots on stage that can cause low frequency resonance.


The StageBug... small size, big heart, huge sound!
