Eight MIDAS-designed mic pres for incredible sound

A good mic pre is an essential piece of gear in any signal path, and the Behringer ADA8200 is loaded with eight front-panel preamps designed by MIDAS. Plus, you can use the ADAT output to feed these MIDAS-designed pres into your main audio interface to expand your current system by eight channels.

Improved A/D conversion

Not only is the ADA8200 a formidable 8-channel mic pre, it serves dual purpose as a solid A/D converter. The ADA8200 features the same design as the popular ADA8000, but Behringer infused the upgraded ADA8200 with incredible reference-class Cirrus Logic converters to keep your tone intact. You'll love the sound of the ADA8200, and with this kind of dual functionality, the ADA8200 is ideal for home and project studios where you need maximum versatility from your gear.

Flexible Sample Rate and Clocking

The ADA8200 gives you the choice of converting at 44.1kHz or 48kHz for compatibility with most digital gear. You can also use the ADA8200 as your studio's master clock, or you can sync to ADAT or Word Clock from an external clock.

Behringer Ultragain Pro-8 Digital ADA8200 Microphone Preamplifier / A/D Converter Features:
  • 8 MIDAS-designed mic preamplifiers for incredible sound
  • Reference-class Cirrus Logic 24-bit converters for excellent A/D and D/A conversion
  • Digital I/O on ADAT optical for maximum compatibility
  • 60dB of available gain — works with any mic
  • Phantom power on all channels
  • Can be used as a master clock, or sync'd to ADAT or Word Clock
Convert a lot but spend a little with the Behringer ADA8200!

BEST VALUE IN AN 8-UNIT MIC PRE + INTERFACE FOR THE $ ON THE MARKET! Clean, transparent Midas mic pres in a useful, clean package. I needed 8 inexpensive mic pres for an Avid 192 with an extra 8 digital inputs that I needed to use where I'm running Protools 10HD. This ADA8200 does the job nicely. Probably the best $ I've spent since I started building my studio. Sweetwater YOU ROCK!!!

Fantastic value; super easy to set up and use

I've owned a fair amount of Behringer gear and I've actually never had any issues with any of it. Granted, it's "bargain" equipment, with some gear noisier than others, but still a really good value for the price. The ADA8200 is perhaps one of the best pieces of Behringer gear I've ever purchased. The set up is so simple, it's almost hard to mess up! In my setup, I'm using an M-Audio 1814 FireWire interface. I set the Sync switch on the back of the ADA8200 to Master 48.0 Khz, plugged the optical cable into the Out of the ADA8200 and into the In on the M-Audio 1814 and that was it. Of course, I had to check the settings in the audio control panel for the M-Audio to ensure that it was set up to sync to external clock. I've only been using the unit for a couple weeks, but it's been flawless so far. The preamps don't seem to offer quite as much gain as the built-in preamps on the M-Audio, but they still offer plenty; more than enough for my needs. I haven't needed to use the outputs yet, so I have no comment on those. The red finish on this unit is really nice to look at. It's a well put together piece, but is standard fare for Behringer, meaning it's not the most rugged unit with the highest quality parts. The knobs are sturdy enough, but not as "solid" as on something like the Focusrite Scarlett 18i20. As with the rest of the Behringer gear I've owned, however, with proper care, I expect it to last for years. I still have a rack mount mixer and a headphone preamp that are both over 12 years old and still work fine. Overall, I don't think you can beat this unit for the price and features and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to add 8 channels of ADAT to their setup.

Just what I needed

I easily connected it to my Apollo dual twin interface. It works great with no complaints.

Bang for the buck

A great inexpensive way to turn a Digi003 (or comparable device) into a 16 analog input recording setup. Once you connect a Digi003 to your Protools rig it does not allow any other devices to be accessed simultaneously. But it will recognize the ADAT light pipe connection which is where this unit comes in. I use this in my portable rig for recording live musicians and for that the converters are fine. I have not done an A/B comparison with other devices. But I bet you'd be hard pressed to find anything better in this price range.

Great unit

There is a reason why this product and its predecessor are the most popular products by Behringer ever to be sold. It's a great unit for expansion for any USB audio interface that has ADAT in and out functionality. I pair it with a Focusrite 18i20 for a total of 16 inputs at 44.1 kHz. Most 8 mic pre ADAT preamps like this cost higher than the original price of the interface, so if you are looking for a budget solution that will get the job done, buy this. Thank you Behringer for a great product, and thank you Sweetwater!
