The Type 10S is a two-channel version of the Type 10 direct box, delivering industry-leading technical performance with new features to meet the unique needs of stereo and two-channel users.
The Type 10S achieves the highest SNR, lowest phase deviation, and lowest distortion of any DI. Some boxes achieve low distortion over a narrow range of frequencies and levels, but end up coloring the low frequencies and distorting loud signals. The Type 10S maintains exceptionally low THD and IMD across the entire audio band, and for a wide range of input voltages, rendering your sound with extremely high fidelity.
Like the Type 85, the Type 10S is armored inside and out, with a molded core wrapped in an extra thick architectural aluminium housing. The switches and connectors are fully recessed. The electronics are just as tough—the Type 10S shrugs off static spikes and will survive with the input connected directly to 110 V or 220 V line voltage.
