Along these same lines, I've read numerous reviews (mailing lists, 
retailer product reviews, third-party reviews, etc) of the Behringer 
ADA8000 A/D converter and the reviews seem to be quite positive, 
especially considering the USD $229 price point.

For the people here who have used them, what are your thoughts?  Good, 
bad, or indifferent, I'm curious.  If there's something out there that's 
better at an at least somewhat similar price point, let me know, 
considering they would see both studio and live use.  There are lots of 
good 8-pack rackmount studio A/D and/or D/A converters out there, but 
paying USD $1,000 or more apiece just doesn't make financial sense right 
now, since I'd need 3 of them for my rig.  Also, many studio boxes aren't 
well suited to or designed for life in a road case.
