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

Can I give more than 5 stars!?!

Use this baby every time we fire up the studio. Midas pres on this are crisp and clean with plenty of headroom. Used in tandem via optical light pipe and give my FCA1616 addition of 8 more channels - especially nice for tracking drums and larger bands. Great Behringer quality yet again!

You couldn't ask for a better way to expand your interface.

Fantastic preamps boost any home studio

My band self-records. This handled our eight mic drum recording setup like a champ, with great tone coming from the Midas preamps. $200 is a steal.

Works perfect with to give me 32 channels.

I bought the Behringer ADA 8200 because my Motu 24Ao has no analog inputs. This with two optical ADAT connectors, now gives me 32 channels of analog outputs for my new Presonus 32 channel digital mixer, and 8 analog inputs, microphone or line. 32 channels is more than enough.

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.
