Please forgive me if this isn't the right forum...

I'm looking to add an LR Baggs Element pickup to my DR14, but I'm questioning if not I should rethink this. Since the Element is an active pickup and since I'll be running it through a DI should I opt out for a passive pickup instead? I'm still not all that familiar with the Paracoustic DI's other then the fact that it really cleaned up my sound on my DM14 with the LR Baggs Miratone which is also an active pickup. However, the sound with the DM14 is still a little harsh out times and seems as if it wants to distort. This may just be due to my inexperience with the DI, but then again...that's why I'm asking you guys the questions. So...any input or advice would be extremely helpful!
