Recommendations for a cheap (but good) DI box?

Seems like this hasn't been asked in awhile and since products change so often...

Art CleanboxPro is the usual recommendation these days, isn't it? But at $85 locally...
Long & McQuade - ART Pro Audio CleanBoxPro - Unbalanced-to-Balanced Level Converter
that seems a bit excessive for simple level matching.

A couple of weeks ago I asked a dj at a local event what he would recommend and he said any mixer would do the job, but all the (cheap) mixers I've looked at output unbalanced.

Usually I like shopping around but I find this product extremely boring (I'd rather be window shopping for drivers, amps and active xo's) so I'm looking for recommendations.
