TELEFUNKEN to Exhibit TEC-Nominated Direct Box Line at Winter NAMM

TELEFUNKEN Elektroakustik returns to the 2018 Winter NAMM show at the recently expanded Anaheim Convention Center. The entire product line will be on display at Booth #15706 in the newly built Pro Audio hall. TELEFUNKEN is exhibiting its NAMM TEC Award-nominated direct box line, which can be found in TEC Awards ballot under Production Essentials.

Watch a Benny Hill-inspired parody of R+D scientists, as the TELEFUNKEN team attempt to destroy the Direct Box:

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 a high quality transformer that provides the perfect balance between clean, high headroom performance and warm, saturated tone.

The TELEFUNKEN TD-1 (mono) and TD-2 (dual) are new passive transformer direct box designs that combine premium quality components with a rugged construction to create a reliable DI with rich, warm character. 

In the heart of each new TELEFUNKEN 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 an extremely durable extruded aluminum enclosure with recessed heavy-duty metal toggle switches to engage a -15 dB pad and ground lift. The rugged construction is virtually indestructible, able to easily withstand the wear and tear of gigging. The simple and elegant design approach delivers a new standard in reliability and performance for direct boxes.
