I've compared the least expensive DI boxes against the $150 ones, and there is no difference in either noise level nor frequency output. They don't effect sound.

The one thing which expensive DI boxes have is durability for heavy road work.

When I say DI, I'm ONLY talking about converting ¼" (high impedance) to XLR (low impedance).

The term DI is often used to describe a Preamplifier with two or three output options trather than just transforming high impedance to low impedance…possibly with the ability to trim the volume and lift the ground.

I have found zero sonic improvement to using a powered DI over a passive one.
