ART Zdirect Passive Direct Box in EXCELLENT Condition!

Utilizing totally passive circuitry, this device is used to connect an instrument, line, or speaker level signal into a device that has balanced low impedance inputs. For example you would use this box to connect an acoustic guitar to a mix input on a mixer.

The Zdirect has a wide and flat frequency response, and is capable of passing high level signals while maintaining a neutral, low impedance balanced output. Featuring all the gadgets and gizmos you would expect from ART all housed in a compact aluminium casing, this is a rugged little unit that will stand the test of time on the road.

Impedance matching is a means of maintaining the strongest possible signal during a transfer between two devices. This important because having mismatched impedances between an instrument and mixer will create a signal loss, meaning a drop in the signal-noise ratio, resulting in a more clouded and less true to source signal.


  • A stylish, durable and very compact stackable aluminium chassis
  • Input Attenuator switches for a wide range of signal levels
  • Phase Invert switch on the box for quick phase corrections
  • An "input thru" jack that allows for tapping off of the signal chain
  • A ground lift switch which lets you totally separate the input and output signal grounds, to reduce hum and ground-loop noise


  • Frequency Response: 10Hz -50kHz, +/-.5dB @ +4dBu
  • Total Harmonic Distortion: .01% Typical @ 1kHz, +18dBu, <.05% @ 100Hz, +18dBu
  • Input Connections: ¼ - inch TRS unbalanced, 50k Ohm
  • Output Connections: XLR male balanced, 600 Ohm
  • Output Phase: Switchable, Normal/Invert
  • Ground Lift: Switchable, fully isolates inputs from chassis and output
  • Input Attenuation: Switchable, (0dB, -20dB, -40dB)
  • Filter Type / Response: Switchable, Low Pass, -3dB @30kHz
  • Dimensions: 1.75"H x 4.2"D x 3.5"W (44.5mm x 107mm x 89mm)
  • Weight: 0.75 lbs (0.35 kg)
