BAE Audio announces the PDIS stereo DI is now available.

BAE’s popular PDI direct box is now available in stereo configuration via the PDIS.

Back in October, we covered the announcement of BAE’s new PDIS stereo DI box. It is now available through select dealers.

The PDIS is based upon the single channel PDI. Like the mono PDI, the PDIS uses an OEP/Carnhill transformer to imbue any signal passed through it with a satisfying warmth and analog richness.

The PDIS features Neutrik connectors, including quarter-inch inputs and low-impedance XLR outputs for each channel on one side. It also includes a pair of through outputs for each channel on the reverse side. Dual ground lift switches help navigate any noise issues caused by grounding. Additionally, the unit can function as two independent separate instrument DI channels and handle two mono instruments if needed.

Like all BAE Audio products, the PDIS is hand-wired in California and features 100% through-hole components for maximum signal integrity. Recessed switches and connectors combined with a rugged steel chassis help it stand up against the wear and tear of daily studio or stage use.

The PDIS is now shipping, and retails for $200.
