Behringer Ultra-DI Pro DI800
Full connectivity, per channel:
- Level control (-30dB and +20 dB)
- Phantom power or disconnect mass
- Input and output + link


No need to book!




After a few small concerts (5 instruments or microphones) RAS.
A big box of live doing his job.

LoHerry's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Convenient to live"

Behringer Ultra-DI Pro DI800
DI 8 channel 1U rack
Self-powered or powered by +48 V phantom power)

Front panel divided into similar sections 8:
- Input TRS
- Link TRS
- TS unbalanced Output Jack
- Selector-30dB pad
- Selector boost of +20 dB
- Common Ground Lift Switch for and +48 V phantom power

A note therefore that phantom power can be managed independently for each channel ...

Rear panel:
- 8 XLR balanced outputs


Easy to use as a DI

Manual unused in my case and normally sufficient given the role of a DI.
Anyway, the person who buys a DI necessarily know what it is ...

The DI800 has been used for short recordings (without sound requirement) but more often in a live context.

The combination of pad / boost provides an attenuation of-10dB


DI fulfills its role.

The boost of +20 dB generates a light breeze (nothing illogical) can be can we have better signal / noise ratio on that point ...?

The rendering of dynamic and color signal, I did not look too quibble given the value for money. I also had targeted for live use, not studio where the sound requirement is not the same.

Listening, I found a very slight coloration in the high mids (not the most pleasant, but so low that easily circumvented) and a slight feeling of loss of momentum. However, this is only felt and my judgment is nothing founded, measured ...

In any case, for the first vocation I had given him, namely live, it is an effective, comprehensive and sufficient tool (for my taste).

Also note that I used on trays where the instruments change regularly, instruments that are not mine ... It would be my personal DI for my instruments live, I would take the line a little above (BSS AR133 type )


I used for about 5 years for regular use but not heavy (about 1 times / week). Never a failure, always functional.

I think we have our money.

My rating is therefore based on the role I assigned (live use) depending on the quality / price ratio. After that, it is true that if I could afford today, I would rather have a battery BSS AR133, but the budget is not the same (and its not more ...)

Oliviercool's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" A box of direct Rack"

Behringer Ultra-DI Pro DI800
- 8 channels
- Can be supplied by sector or Phantom Power (Phantom Power sent to the outputs via XLR Cables supply power that their respective channels)
- With attnuation - 30 dB per channel, making it possible rcupration signal via speaker output amplifier.
- With 20 + dB amplification per channel.
- With key development land or not by channel.


Finally a box of live Behringer up the place - of jacks, and output link of the front XLR assymtriques the rear. DI4000 because of the same brand are mounted upside down: input jacks and XLR outputs and the rear output forward, making them impossible to use in although they taient rack rack.

And you know what? Submitted by the DI 800 is used without readers by collection outdoor :-) ))) Yes, because it can be fed via feeding fantme therefore can be fed by my Zoom multi-R24 battery operated (for 6 channels) and two AKG B18 (for 2 remaining channels). Too bad that feeds qu'tant fawn, we can not use the buttons up the land since they can switch to that channel mode power fantme mode power supply. But hey, all fawn, we will never need to key "land" when using battery-operated devices.


Take a little time to do some tests costing background noise but when finished, even by him out of his one good quality ^ ^ However, in some cases, when there is a snore of mass rebel that I can not eliminate with the DI 800, you still get the same-signal concern for my BSS AR-416.


I needed symtriser 8 outputs from my rack and to do that, I tried to get me one second DI BSS AR-416 4 channel but they are difficult to find and Chres Used (bein yes because new, they are no longer manufactured). While waiting to find one, I use the Behringer is doing that, even when well in most cases. The 8-channel DI be counted on the fingers of one hand: the Behringer is the best tailor my applications. Now Espron it is more reliable than his groin DI4000 ^ ^

- The balanced XLR output (the base of a DI) on the bottom of the unit
- An output jack Direct link "front that swings exactly the same signal as the input returns to
- An output "unbalanced out" in front that swings exactly the same signal as the XLR out.

The difference between the output "direct link" and unbalanced out is the direct link double exactly what you enter in the ID, while the unbalanced out passes, as the XLR output, for your settings.

Before reaching the XLR (or exit out unbalanced ", so), you have 3 buttons:
- A 20 db preamp low quality but often useful
- A-30db attenuator if you plug a device output level high
- A switch "gnd lift" to avoid problems of ground loops (not yet successful to use it but good)

<span style="font-style: normal;">Personally, I pair a headphone amplifier Behringer HA4700:
- On each INPUT DI-Pro 800, I plug in an instrument
- After 20 db preamp XLR he went to the mixing console
- Taking into account the +20 db I connect the output "unbalanced outs" to an input of my headphone amp
- I connected the output of the console control room at the main entrance of the headphone amplifier

Result: each musician to share the console through a balanced signal, and each musician is defined individually in his ear, perfectly, in addition to the total mix of the console.

€ 89 for 8 in Euroguitar with DI preamp / attenuator and full connectivity, there is no clear picture ...

PS: Small + fun: if you unplug a device for releasing an electrical outlet, it is this: If your mixing console has a phantom power, you can send the juice by the XLR ...</span></span> </div> <span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: small;">

killer2k2's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer Ultra-DI Pro DI800
Hi all

technology: analog, no effects and XLR output jack conection Rack 1 U


General Config, nothing to do a c DI
Manuel succinct but anyway anyone read it (a C DI!)


No particular color just a clear c all. Harmonics out a bit more I feel .. probably due to the thinning of the sound.


Used for 1 year,
the most: its clear-channel 8 percent euro rack
Cons: must be available and multicore cables tidy.

unbeatable value for money I think c behr!

yes with the experience I would do without this choice problem

Pompadour's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer Ultra-DI Pro DI800
A rack unit with 8 channels.
We returned to Jack, one XLR output.
Phantom power quite handy, or else the sector.
Practical existence of an output link to connect directly to the individual return without going through the console.


It is also used just one cable. There is almost nothing to solve. What is a DI.
The channels may be a bit small


The sound is quite Fidler, as it may be noted on the DI100, as everywhere in his Berhinger a fairly clear up a little crystal-clear, ideal for lectros!
However, this just fishing for bass is dnude plnitude of its sound.


Well, I use it for a year. What I like most is having 8-channel DI for nothing! (150) It does what is asked of him without problem, with a very good price quality ratio.
However, I am spare because they live under is not very practical to use,
the solution of having each with its DI100 scratching at his feet is simpler, more discrte a rack in the middle of scne!
