Radial J48 Stereo

The Radial J48 Stereo gives you a phantom-powered, high-performance 2-Channel active direct box. Ideal for live concert touring as well as professional recording studio applications. Sporting the ability to handle extreme transients without distortion, all while maintaining the natural sound of your instrument.

Higher voltage, Higher headroom

Most battery-powered instruments and stereo keyboards produce up to 7 Volts of power when played at maximum volume. As a result, this can easily overload most typical active direct boxes that can only handle 3 Volts of power. Using a unique switching power supply, the J48 Stereo uses a unique switching power supply that raises the internal voltage up to a whopping 9 volts. So you’ll enjoy improved signal handling as well as greater headroom. Therefore, significantly reducing distortion and allowing the natural tone of your instrument to shine.

What’s more, the J48 Stereo maintains separation between the left and right channels. Allowing it to be used on two separate instruments or with stereo sources such as keyboards.

Using the J48 Stereo with a keyboard

Boasting an active circuit and amazing signal handling, the J48 Stereo is a great choice for both digital and analog keyboards. Not to mention, a built-in pad reduces the Direct Box sensitivity if you need.

Using the J48 Stereo with two basses

Housed in a compact design, the J48 Stereo makes it easy to connect two guitars to one direct box. Giving you a great-sounding active circuit that sounds as good as other DIs that cost up to five times as much.

J48 Stereo with two different instruments

Finally, you can use the J48 Stereo with two completely different instruments. Sporting a low crosstalk, its a great choice for when you’re doubling between bass, guitar, fiddle, or mandolin.

  • Exceptional headroom & dynamic range
  • Retains the natural sound of the instrument
  • Use with stereo sources or multiple instruments
  • Powered by 48V phantom, no batteries required
