Let's get started by taking a close look at the Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200. Behringer are a company that needs no introduction. Established back in 1989 they are one of the largest and best musical equipment manufacturers in the world and will be a household name to nearly every single musician, recording artist and audio enthusiast on the planet.
The challenger is the PreSonus DigiMax D8 8-Channel. This is the second product on our list of reviews from PreSonus and this highlights the calibre of equipment these guys are creating and how quickly they are creating a name for themselves. Especially when you consider that PreSonus were only established in 1995 and the other companies on this list were founded in the 80’s or earlier.
The MIC2200 is renowned for its professional quality and is the go-to preamp when only the warmest and cleanest sound will suffice. Regardless of whether you use the console, hard disk recorders, DAT recorders or the countless other formats, it does not matter, this will considerably improve your output.
Releases from PreSonus have a great reputation for being robust, no frills preamps that get the job done and the Digimax D8 is no exception. It is a powerful, hard working unit that could easily support the needs of an entire home studio. This is due to its 8 channels and ultra-wide dynamic range. Also considering the price tag the PreSonus is outstanding value for money, genuine ‘bang for your buck’.
