Active Class-A Direct Box, 2-Ins, 4-Outs & Drag Control. Psu Included
The purpose of the Radial JDV is to provide the user with the very best interface between the instrument and the recording or sound reinforcement system. Today, the 'instrument' is not just the guitar, bass, or contrabass, but the instrument in combination with the amplifier, effect rack and pedals.
LED Status indicators include system on, signal present and peak level overload.
80Hz high-pass filter reduces excessive bass for more clarity. Elliminates run-away resonant feedback from acoustics!
7kHz low-pass filter gently rolls off high end edge and reduces noise and hiss from older instruments. Very musical!
Vary-Z switch selects between ultra-high 3.9 Meg-Ohm input impedance and Drag control for load correction.
Drag Control is used to retain the natural feel of the instrument on the active auxiliary outputs by correcting the load.
A or B input switch selects between the two instruments inputs for fast changes.
Heavy-duty baked enamel finish for durability and great looks! 14-gauge steel makes it impossible to break!
Speaker interface option introduces a -30dB input pad. Must be connected in parallel w/speaker.
Inputs A & B are selected using front panel switch for quick. noiseless instrument change.
Direct thru-put passive output connects to the instrument amplifier.
Auxiliary outputs A & B are used for additional amplifiers, stereo rigs or effect devices. Very flexible!
Tuner output removes tuner from audio signal path for optimum audio performance.
No-slip full bottom pad reduces mechanical vibration, improves electrical isolation & stops sliding!
Unique book-end design creates a protective boundary around the switches and connectors.
Strain releif for power supply cable.
XLR balanced mic level output can drive runs of up to 1000 feet without appreciable noise.
Polarity reverse switch flips the polarity from the AES standard Pin-2 to Pin-3 on the XLR and is used when combining sounds that may be out of phase.
-15dB pad: The JDV rail voltage is so huge, we put a -15dB pad at the output so that it will not overload your mixer.
Ground-lift disconnects the ground path at the XLR output. This would be used when a ground connection is made at the input side such as with a keyboard.
42V external DC power supply with cable lock to assure the JDV will not accidentally lose its power connection.
I-beam construction eliminates external stresses on PC board.
42-Volt power supply input jack.
Cable lock strain relief prevents power loss from accidental unplugging.
Large, oversized capacitors for maximum headroom.
100% Class-A discreet circuitry (no op-amps!).
Baked enamel finish for added durability.
