Acme Audio WB-3 Motown DI


This ACME Audio Motown DI has been fully tested by our expert team and comes with a full money-back, satisfaction guarantee.

During Motown’s heyday, a major technical component of “The Detroit Sound’ was the direct input box (DI). Designed by a young Motown audio engineer in the early 1960s, the musicians plugged straight in and achieved a distinct, colorful distortion that would become recognizable all over the world. The DI box was adopted by such Motown greats as James Jamerson Sr., Dennis Coffey and Bob Babbitt, who defined the sound of a generation with their soulful playing and crisply captured notes.

Recreated by Acme Audio, the new Motown D.I. WB-3 brings the exact character as the original DI box. Modern updates include the improved variable attenuated for high-level input and the custom-made, rugged steel case (the original DIs were built in Aluminum boxes). Owners of the Motown DI will find that it increases sound quality in a marginal acoustic environment, for the cleanest, purest sound source possible.

The Acme Audio Motown D.I. WB-3 faithfully recreates the iconic character of the original DI box used during Motown’s legendary era. This modern rendition features enhancements such as an improved variable attenuator for handling high-level inputs and a custom-made, rugged steel case (in contrast to the original aluminum boxes).
