The Phoenix N8 DI is the eight channel version of the ever popular Nice DI with the same high quality that incorporates our Class A discrete input design.
The N8 was also designed to be compact, rugged and road worthy so making it an excellent companion for live touring, broadcast or for more traditional recording studios where you need excellent direct inputs. The unit features an external 24V PSU with lockable connector so can easily be portable wherever you go.
Its an excellent choice for guitar, bass or keyboards and many, many other instruments and the 10M ohm impedance means that you get the true & accurate sound of your instrument always without any sonic sacrifices.

1U chassis rack space
External 24v PSU with lockable connector
Huge headroom available on all channels.
Gain range : 30dB
Frequency Response: 20Hz to 20Khz +/- 0.5dB
Maximum Output: +26dBu @ 1Khz
Noise: -90dB @ 22Hz to 22KHz
Advantages: The Class A DI has a very high input impedance (10Mohm), without the use of FET's. This means that the guitar pickups are not loaded as with a lower impedance input, and so allows every transient to be reproduced, making even a cheap guitar sound exceptional.
Inputs: 1/4 jack (TS) input on the front panel
Inputs: 1/4 jack (TS) through on the front panel
Output configuration: Transformer isolated, main balanced output (D-sub wired to Tascam DA88 standard) on the rear panel
Output configuration: Transformer isolated, monitor balanced output (D-sub wired to Tascam DA88 standard) on the rear panel that can be used in conjunction with main outputs.
Fully compliant external 24v: @ 1amp PSU with lockable connector
Pad: on every channel (15db) with illuminated switch
Phase reverse: on every channel with illuminated switch
Earth ground lift: on every channel with illuminated switch
