Sound Block Passive Direct Box with Ground Lift and Attenuator
Throw the Sound Block in a bag, trunk, or anywhere cable and misc. audio supplies are stored. The heavy-duty construction and passive electronics make the Sound Block nearly indestructible. This Direct Interface is extremely versatile as a Lo to Hi-Z transformer for electric instruments and devices to XLR mic inputs or as Lo-Hi-Z to use a microphone with a guitar amp (not recommended only because guitar amps make terrible PAs). High level outputs from active instruments and even speaker outputs are not a problem when using the -20 or -40 db attenuator switch. The Sound Block is a very easy to use passive device. Simply plug your 1/4" output from a guitar or electric piano, plug an XLR cable into your mixer's channel input, and you're done. A ground lift is provided for use in older buildings with janky wiring or if circuits are different from stage to where the sound system is located.

- Bi-directional impedance matching
- Use with high output signals, including speakers
- -20dB and -40dB pad options

Questions and Answers
The goal being to hear the jukebox in the living room over the home theater speakers.
If so for the best quality sound would it be best to mount these near to the Jukebox or the receiver? in other words should I minimize the run of speaker level wire or should I keep the "pre-out" level wiring length to a minimum?
Is not what will I need?
Is there a "wireless" option that will achieve the same result?

I've used them for several gigs now on many types of instruments and they work great! I had a mandolin pickup that required an active DI at one event, but these worked great for all of the other stringed inst pickups and keyboards.
Had one stage that had noise problems and the ground lift switches cured the buzz.
All in All a Great Buy!
PROS: Price is great!
CONS: sponge rubber feet
