Gearank High Notes

The Radial X-Amp is a two channel Reamping DI Box ideal for outputting a dry signal to two amplifiers or signal chains.

To help keep things congruent, it has a polarity switch in case the blend of two amps sounds out of phase.

Features:

  • Active re-amping box (15V DC power supply)
  • Two outputs to drive two separate amplifiers
  • Level control, ground lift and polarity reverse controls
  • Input 1 x XLR, Outputs 2 x 1/4"
  • Weight: 2 lbs

Pros

"It does what it's supposed to do" say several reviewers, and that's all you should need to hear about a device so simple. What people also praise about the X-amp is not its feature set but its build, component and jack quality. In our research we have not come across a unit failure or defect and that says something.

Cons

Power adaptor can be clunky.

Overall

If you're looking for an active Reamp box that allows you to split your signal from your source into two guitar amps, it doesn't get any better than the Radial X-amp.
