By PSW Staff • September 26, 2016 New TDA-1 and TDA-2 active FET direct boxes from TELEFUNKEN TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik is introducing four new direct boxes at AES, 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 transformer that provides balance between high headroom performance and saturated tone. The TD-1 (mono) and TD-2 (dual) are new passive transformer direct box designs that combine quality components with a rugged construction to create a reliable DI with rich, warm character. In the heart of each new 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 a durable extruded aluminum enclosure with recessed metal toggle switches to engage a -15 dB pad and ground lift.
