Samson's MCD2 Pro Stereo Passive PC Direct Box is the ideal solution for connecting unbalanced line level signals from laptops, CD/MP3 players, and DJ mixers to professional, balanced equipment. Durable, roadworthy construction and two Mu-metal shielded transformers provide high-quality signal connection solutions for a variety of live sound and recording applications.

Custom STLX Transformers
The MCD2 Pro features two of Samson's STLX Mu-Metal shielded transformers that deliver an extended, flat frequency response with ultra-low distortion and superior protection against hum and RF interference. The MCD2 Pro's balanced outputs provide clean signals that are less susceptible to noise than unbalanced lines, allowing for longer cable runs.

Input Options
The MCD2 Pro features dual 1/4", RCA and a stereo 1/8" input to accommodate any line level instrument or consumer audio connection. Its selectable Stereo/Mono sum switch allows users to accommodate typical mono "house" PA systems. Additionally, a 2-position 0dB/-12dB attenuation switch provides users with ample headroom to handle hotter inputs.

Roadworthy Construction
Housed in a 14-guage noise-reducing steel chassis, the MCD2 Pro is built to withstand the abuse of the most demanding live tours. Its rigid outer shell protects all the MCD2 Pro's internal connections, switches and solder joints from failure, ensuring quiet, reliable performance.

Works well.


I needed a stereo DI to use my MacBook Pro on a PA. This did the job. I compared the quality with a USB direct out box and sound quality was similar.



Pro Quality for Great Price!


I can't say enough good things about the MCD2. This stereo DI box will take 1/4", RCA, or a stereo 1/8" so it will take signal from pretty much an source and run it out balanced XLR outputs--this makes it great for any situation--running sound from instruments, computers, DJ mixers, whatever! The quality is amazing! You cant beat these boxes! I am a verified Sam Ash Reviewer.

Sturdy build


Last year Samson brought out their latest versions of DI boxes and they are beyond what anyone was expecting. Sturdy build so they can take a beating on stage and are nice and simple so anyone can use them.

Solid DI


This is a well built DI. Anyone running live sound knows the value of a reliable and good quality DI. This one is built rugged and most importantly offers a very clean signal. It's compact to fit in any bag making this essential easy to bring along.

Heavy duty


I have been surprised by the newer Samson Di boxes. The MCD2 is passive (no batteries) and is switchable from mono to stereo to accommodate different scenarios. Flat response and built well!! I have had a few customers that shrug when mentioning the name along and they can't believe how well built they are. They usually go home with them over other brands.

Key Component


I actually purchased and use this product personally. I run out of my television, into this box, and then into a pair of Dynaudio BM15 studio monitors. They correct the voltage and give me about twice the volume I would've had. If you're plugging your phone or computer into a PA, you owe it to yourself to try this little box in between. The difference will surprise you.

Super Simple


This guy is really durable and easy to use. Plug in my stuff then to the mixer and BOOM, done. I like that It can fit in really any size gigbag for live shows and inbetween sets

A must for anyone using a computer or tablet live!


The MCD2 completely blows away expectations! This is one of the cleanest sounding DIs available for anyone looking to a computer, tablet, or smart phone into ANY type of PA System. You have plenty of input connection options (1/8", dual 1/4", and RCAs), and the dual XLR outputs help maintain stereo imaging. The audio quality is far beyond many competitors offerings. A must have piece of kit for any sound engineer.
