I needed to get rid of stage clutter caused by having four direct boxes for the acoustic guitars used in my duo. The ART PDB4 does just that by having the inputs on the front and the the XLR outputs in the back, we just plug into the ART and leave the connections inside the rack pluged in. The only drawback that I have found, is the unit was picking up noise from the power supply for my mixer. I just moved things around in the rack and the noise went away. You probably wouldn't get any noise from the Radial rack mounted direct box, but it's $800 and the ART is $80. Overall, this piece works well and is a very good value.
