Behringer Ultragain Digital ADA8200 : pilip's user review

Value For Money : Excellent
8 preamp mic / line with adat conversion in both directions (A / D and D / A)
--- >>> See manufacturer website for detailed technical description.
comprehensive for the price anyway

OVERALL OPINION

Having owned the ADA8000 I make a brief comparison:
- Not notched knobs on this new version, which is an advantage here because the locking was not at all accurate on the old version
- Manufacturing slightly better, but the former was already very good for the price.
- The preamps !: then cracked it right in the choice of the resistance of the potentiometer: We have roughly 3/4 of the gain on the last quarter of the volume pot, so to calibrate accurately this is really not wise. And they talk about 60 db of gain but personally I do not know where they are! with a TLM102 (static 11mv / pa) I was thoroughly! The sound was not bad but the wind was present. Short obviously is STRICTLY UNBEATABLE with the Midas preamps that venice them gain to spare, the sound is fuller on venice with a detailed medium, with the ADA8200 the sound is hollow, and Forgive me the 'expressionist lack of corones. Compared to the ADA8000 there is less gain but a better sound all the same.

Despite all this I keep a very good impression because stability is always ADAT sync appointments, gift to add 8 line inputs to a sound card or a digital console it's still a great product at an unbeatable price!
