    I want to purchase a DBX 286A, and it has a mic input (with a preamp) and a line input. Can I use the line input tu plug in an e-guitar? It says the line is 30k-60k Ohm impedance. This is high impedance (high-Z), right? 'Cos I know that the e-guitar is high impedance, so it should fit... Am I taking this the wrong way or something?

    Yes, it will work just fine.

    Why don't you just plug in a guitar and see if it works :?: Don't be afraid to try new approaches or experiment. As long as you don't plug the outputs of a power amp into a line or mic input, with a liitle caution , like keeping you monitors turned down, you really can't hurt much of anything.

    Plug the guitar into what?... I don't own the 286A, as of yet. :p Nor do I own a similar apparatus.

    the line in of the 286 is not intended for guitar.... 30dB of gain probably will not be enough for a guitar pick-up.... and high impedance usually means upwards of 100k?

    use the mic in instead....
