GUEST,Graham Bradshaw Tech: Behringer DI20 Hiss problem (23) RE: Tech: Behringer DI20 Hiss problem 22 Feb 13

I have a few of these, but we avoid using them unless there is no alternative. They are very hissy if the gain is turned up on the mixing desk. If they are fed with a strong signal, and you don't need much gain on the desk, they are acceptable. And the stereo feature can be quite useful.
I also have some of the bigger single ones - DI100 I think. These seem to be fine and have very little hiss, although they will clip and distort if you overload them.
We now use mostly the LA Audio ones - excellent, very clean, and less prone to clip. Also use some BSS, but very expensive.
Interestingly, there are the odd occasions when the Behringers seem to work better! Horses for courses I suppose.
Other cheaper ones that are worth checking out are the Studiospares ones - similar to the DI100 Behringer. Same sort of price but seem better made. Most now made in China these days.
