I use one in my studio's Live Room that runs 8 balanced lines into one of the Control Room's patch panels for quick patching into the recording console.
I have another one at home in my home theater setup that gets 8 channels of input directly from the **speaker terminals** of a 7.1 HTS (Yes..., you can REALLY do that!!) & use it to then output 8 unbalanced line signals to various amps for "bi-amping" & multiple zones.

Worth the price!

By Stephen

from New Jersey

Comments about Behringer DI800 ULTRA-DI PRO - Direct Inject Box:

Behringer usually gets a bad name, but this is one of their best products. The DI works effiecently and can handle 8 inputs at the same time. For the price you're getting above and more. The DI comes with -30db, PAD, unbalanced out, as well as a link to monitor each output. Overall, impressed with this product.

I've been using this DI to route my backing tracks to the stage box. For the price, this is a lot of inputs, though the connectivity (XLR vs TRS) is limited.

    Comments about Behringer DI800 ULTRA-DI PRO - Direct Inject Box:

    I use this to send acoustic guitar signals of our praise band to the mixer in my church. This unit provides an excellent sounding, robust signal that is much better than just relying on the mixer line input alone. I continue to be impressed with Behringer products that always do what they're supposed to do. Are there better Direct Boxes out there? Yes, but this eight channel unit is very convenient for multiple guitars or keyboards. Do yourself a favor and make a companion purchase of an eight channel snake to connect this units's outputs to your mixer inputs. You'll be glad you did to minimize the clutter.

      Used this to replace 8 standalone direct boxes to reduce clutter and what a difference! not only in cable management, but also the signal to noise ratio of these boxes are much higher than my old Art passive direct boxes. And the price is fantastic! Thank B&H

        Comments about Behringer DI800 ULTRA-DI PRO - Direct Inject Box:

        I use it for live sound - I need DI for instruments to get them to balanced xlr for snake to control from off-stage.
        The sound quality of guitars is significantly better when running through the DI. I especially like the linked out and unbalanced out; that is great for a personal loop back for your own little amp on stage.
        Don't really know any cons at this point.

              I use this product to save on having to use multiple d.i. boxes on stage with the use of an electronic drum set. I have eight 7 outputs from the drum brain, so it really saves on clutter. I'm also ordering a 12 channel snake to run from this box to the stage mic inputs. That will also be helpful. I also love the option to turn on or off the phantom power, and the ability to boost the signal from the box. Haven't had any problems with it yet!

                Comments about Behringer DI800 ULTRA-DI PRO - Direct Inject Box:

                This has solved the integration of old, consumer stereo equipment. It has resulted in a much better 'noise floor', which is very important at lower levels. I may have been able to get a better price on auction sites. But, after watching, and bidding, for 2 months, BHP had the best price![...] Packing was VERY good.I would not hesitate to buy from BHP again!
