Most of all, i liked the DI boxes with the passive instruments with wide dynamics. The bass, for example became much more nuanced, the high end opened up and the instrument settled into the mix much better.

For me, the DI boxes by the guys from Riga where the answer to the search for “the” Di box. On one hand, durability, assembly quality and other qualities needed for touring are very important to me. On the other hand - studio sound. And that's where Simple way had me. I was skeptical at first, but after the first listening test we ordered four units, then two more, then six more.

I found Simple Ways D1 to be a very competent active DI box. Some aspects were clearly borrowed from the Radial J48, but i have to give Simple ways DI its due, because its characteristics match and some parameters even surpass the J48.

It is important for me to hear the instrument, the note and most importantly- the music. This device has all three components. A great solution for the bass, keyboards and backing tracks. The light weight is real handy for touring.
The design and processing are impeccable. The price of 160 Euros is a bit high for a lesser known brand, but it totally justifies itself in the studio or on stage.
There are a couple of massive pros when it comes to this device. First of all, when playing an acoustic guitar with a piezzo, the richness of sound doesn't get lost. Secondly - the amazing attack time for the electric guitar. I mostly connect the guitar to a line input, without an amp, and you can't do that without a couple of good DIs
These are, without a doubt, devices, made for the sake of sound, not the money. They are needed when it's crucial to carefully convey the signal. They are also solid as a rock, they've served us on tour from Kamchatka to Germany without a single glitch.

I've been using SimpleWay Di boxes for several years now. SInce day one, iv'e noticed that the sound doesn't get muddy, the instrument sound detailed, close, all the nuances and dynamics are right where they need to be.
