"New" covers a lot of ground. The Tango uses beyond what I'd consider
"old" chips, but it's, what, 4 years or more older than the Behringer?
In this case, I'd think more along the lines of "I wouldn't mind
having another 8 channels of mic preamp and A/D converter since I
already have a Lightpipe input" rather than "which is better, the
Behringer AD8000 or the Tango?"
