Radial Engineering's next-generation JDV Mk5 - a super DI active direct box - retains the purity and dynamic handling that has made it the first choice DI with artists as diverse as Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten and Bruce Swedien. Features include dual switchable inputs with level controls, drag control load correction for magnetic pickups and a 10 meg-ohm option to maximize the tone with piezos. A balanced input with 48V phantom power has been added to channel one to allow a microphone to be combined with the second channel (and adjustable phase control) to produce an incredibly natural sound. Rack- mountable for touring plus a line level drive option for direct recording.

The design of the JDV Mk5 beings with 100% discrete electronics and a unique class-A circuit with zero phase-cancelling negative feedback front-end. This is augmented with Drag™ control load correction that lets you optimize the impedance that is being applied to the pickup along with extra rail voltage for an abundance of headroom. The result is virtually zero harmonic, phase, and cross-point distortion resutling in the most natural rendering without coloration or artifact of any type.

Extra features include fully variable high-pass filters on each channel to eliminate excessive low frequency resonance, easy-read LED level meters, Jensen Transformer isolated outputs to eliminate hum and buzz caused by ground loops, and a +4 dB line level output for direct recording. Switching between channels may be done using a front panel switch or via the optional JR-2 remote control (sold separately).
