As far as ppalmers told me it is simply: plugging them all to the same 
fw-bus... ffado (and freebob) automatically join them for a big device. And 
it should be sample synced via the bus-clock. But you can also add a 
spdif-chain and have the second and third sync to the spdif of the first...

Behringer mostly means a noise-generator with some added electronics. For 
professional recordings I would not use them.

And when compared the presonus firepod is _way_ better!
