TELEFUNKEN Exhibits New Direct Box Line at Winter NAMM
TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is exhibiting four new direct boxes at Winter NAMM 2017, 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 transformer direct box designs that combine premium quality components with a rugged construction to create a reliable DI with rich, warm character.
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 -15dB 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.
