The Type 10 Direct Box from Countryman is an active DI that tackles the difficult tradeoffs present when dealing with direct injection sources - ultra-low distortion can only be attained by increasing input noise, while true ground isolation means high phase deviation or signal attenuation.

Using an analogue circuit that tunes itself, the Type 10 maintains exceptionally low THD and IMD specifications across the entire audio band, and for a wide range of input voltages, rendering the source sound with extremely high fidelity. The result is a clean, precise sound.

The Type 10 is armoured inside and out, with a moulded core wrapped in an extra thick architectural aluminium housing. The switches and connectors are fully recessed. The electronics can shrug off static spikes and will survive with the input connected directly to 110V or 220V line voltage.


  • Rock solid isolation designed to drive any board across hundreds of feet of cable whether or not phantom power is available
  • Internal electronics are moulded into a solid epoxy block and protected against electrical damage
  • The outer casing is a single piece featuring extra thick walls
  • Handles sizzling hot outputs from active keyboards using the -15dB pad with virtually immeasurable distortion
  • Ground lift switch eliminates noise and buzz caused by faulty electrical wiring
  • Access the battery using the edge of a coin
  • Cheque the battery voltage and monitor the quality of the phantom power with the flip of a switch

Australian Shipping Via DHL
DHL offers a great express shipping service to Australia from New Zealand. We are proud to be able to offer express shipping to main cities on the east coast of Australia, within the same timeframe ( If not quicker ) than local Australian courier companies. Prior to the Covid-19 outbreak, service standards for these main centers was overnight. However these services have been impacted greatly, and as such the overnight service has been suspended. Overnight shipping will likely resume once things have returned to normal.

Qualifying main centers include:

  • Brisbane
  • Sydney
  • Adelaide

Whilst this service is extremely efficient and will likely be delivered within 1-2 days 99.9% of the time, it cannot be guaranteed. In the case where something were to go wrong with your delivery and it doesn’t arrive within the specified time frame, in most cases it will be delivered by the next day.

While not all major cities are eligible for overnight delivery, they still benefit from this great service. Other centers throughout Australia will have a typical delivery ETA of 2-4 days. (Excluding rural delivery address where this ETA can be extended to an additional three or more days).

If you require urgent shipping and you don’t reside in one of the cities stated above, please contact us and we can find a solution that works best for you.

Please Note: Shipping via DHL is not available to PO boxes and/ or parcel boxes etc.
