Behringer Ultragain Digital ADA8200
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!

Behringer Ultragain Digital ADA8200
There is a microphone preamp eightfold converting all to the ADAT. It is also able to convert in the other direction via ADAT this time to 8 line outputs handy, for example, to manage multiple monitors or power a multi-preamp headsets.
Front, entries are entitled to duos XLR + Jack seems good. At the rear, it comes out XLR, which is a good thing, but is not necessarily very practical when mobile use recurring.
The rear panel also features the duo for Toslink ADAT I / O, as well as a very traditional BNC connector for sync word clock. A small 4-position switch accompanies this connector to choose how to sync.
Nothing very complicated in fact. It is of course also the EU connector for the power supply earth (and rather too much internal heat that is a good point).

Preamp, supposedly from the MIDAS series are correct, nothing more. But be careful not to push too because from the last third, it starts to blow badly.

However, I have nothing to reproach converters 24-bit Cirrus Logic AD / DA that do a very good job with my little RME BabyFace.

OVERALL OPINION

Used daily since July, I did not ask him a lot either. I doubt I actually draw definitive things about this machine, but for my current use mainly home-studio model, fully knowing that the fact that my goal for the purchase was to facilitate the simultaneous connection of all my gear at home while having the option of taking just my BabyFace when I go with the laptop, in which case I do not need all my gear staying at home.
Obviously I would have preferred that the preamps are completely silent, but at this price, do not ask the moon either. A cumbersome thing mentioned by another review, c'st strange Berho choice to opt for a green LED when the power supply is 48V off, and red when active. This is a destabilizing hair m ^ m if not prohibitive. Of course, at this price, you could not expect a separate 48V power supply for each entry, but here it is on or off for the 8 at a time ...

Thank you for the power button on / off the front, more convenient than the rear, m ^ m it would have been more practical to make STILL automatic thing by detecting a light on the arrival of toslink entry for example ... I quibble;) ...

Q / P ratio consistent with the range of € 200.
With a larger budget, it was necessarily better, but it necessarily spending more. ;)

MustangP51D's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Not bad at all!"

Behringer Ultragain Digital ADA8200
I needed additional 8 mic pre-amplified for my RME UFX, I was looking for something not too expensive to put my UFX in a 2U rack for such concerts bar, jazz club ... (hence the quality 48khz enough for me)
The overall quality is very good.
Do not forget to buy 2 TosLink optical cable type and BNC for the syncro.
Preamps are transparent (well, good enough for the CIF-concert) but clearly less powerful than the UFX. I tried 3 condenser microphones (Neumann KMS 105, Blue Bird and T.bone SC1100) and 4 different dynamic mics (vocals, percussions ...): On the verdict ... I UFX adjusts the gain 'digitally' on 30 or 40 of 65 (so around 13:00 knowing that 0 is at 08:00 and maximum is at 16.00), the ADA8200, to have the same 'potato', I have to go at 15:00. What is good is that even at 15:00, I do not have a blast!
on the other hand in the 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. one begins to feel the limits of the preamp.

OVERALL OPINION

Used for one month, I struggled a bit with the option of my iPad app TotalMix FX for the UFX is stable and sync 'but now that I've found is super reliable!

- I love the price and the fact that the gain is controlled with knobs. I love being able to control the routing on ufx all entries ADA8200 with my ipad ... In concert it's great! I also like the neutral preamp.

- I do not like the lack of potato preamp that force me to use in the area of ​​15:00 (80 or 90%). But hey, even then they do not saturate nor crachouillent, so for my small concerts, fine.

- I do not like at all: the phantom power: who had the idea to turn green when there is not 48 V and red when there is? Come on, he denounces! In addition when it is off (ie green), static continue to operate for at least 30 seconds so it is not known if the phantom power is on or off.
