PS: If the DI box does use op-amps you won't get a high-pass. Even a
high-pass might be inaudible. If you connect left and right without
resistors, you might not get distortion, depending to the outputs of the
keyboard. Doesn't the keyboard provide mono? Sometimes using the left
channel only will add the right channel automatically.

I might be mistaken, but you at least should google.
