Radial USB-Pro Stereo USB Laptop DI

Avoid your laptop's noisy, buzzing headphone output. Plug in this USB-bus-powered direct box to give your laptop a pair of balanced XLR audio outputs.

The Radial USB-Pro is a high-resolution stereo direct box designed to convert sound files from a laptop computer and seamlessly transfer them to a pair of balanced audio outputs to feed a PA, recording or broadcast mixing console.

Made to be plug and play easy to use, the USB-Pro automatically configures itself for use with all popular operating systems including Mac OSX, Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7, thus eliminating the need to load special drivers. Unlike devices that are limited with 16 bit, 44.1kHz conversion rates, the USB-Pro elevates the performance with true 24 bit, 96kHz stereo converters to deliver more headroom and greater detail. This eliminates the need for additional sound cards or separate converters when transferring files, further streamlining production in busy work environments.

Connection from the laptop is done via the 'pro-audio standard' USB type-B port. Digital-to-analog conversion is monitored with the built-in headphone amplifier to ensure the signal is being properly downloaded and converted. A mono-sum switch may be engaged to check for phasing or facilitate signal distribution to two outputs should this be preferred. One simply sets the output volume control to suit. Should hum or buzz caused by ground loops be encountered, two 'set & forget' side-access switches let you insert isolation transformers into the signal path to block stray DC voltage offsets. To further reduce susceptibility to noise, this is augmented with a ground lift switch read more that lifts pin-1 on the two XLRs.

As with all Radial products, the USB-Pro is designed to handle the rigors of professional touring. Their unique book-end design creates protective zones around the switches, connectors and controls to keep them out of harm's way. Inside, their time-tested I-beam construction assures the sensitive internal PC board will not torque which could otherwise cause premature part failure. Finally, a full bottom no-slip pad provides mechanical isolation and electrical insulation, further advantaging the user.
