Keep my Behringer ADA8000 or go the SSL Alpha Link route?

Converters again and almost afraid to ask. The question might be stupid aswell, but hey.. what are forums for ;-)

I have two Behringer ADA8000 converters but i'm looking at the SSL Alfa-Link converters. What do you guy's think, is it worth the upgrade?

I have read thru the ada8000 theats and feel that the behringers are quite competitive and also they sound (as far as i know) good. but i do feel there is some hard high mid's with them.

Any thought's?

PS: I sum analog thu a Neve 8816 ;-)

Here for the gear
 

I have an ADA8000 and found it to sound great only once modded by Black Lion audio. Much more open and rich sounding. That mid harshness you talk about dissapeared. Give them a try. They charge around 200$ for the mod.

Just an FYI, it's call AlphaLink, and yes, they are much better converters than the Behringer boxes.

And they should, regarding the price point

Damnit! and I was thinking about trading in my Alphalink for 14 Behringer Ada8000s. There goes that idea. Thanks again Gearsluts!
