ADA8000 is only a preamp + AD/DA (ADAT). You don't connect it
directly on your computer.

What I've heard about it:
 - préamps are Behringer, it means: good for the price but...
 - AD/DA are good, the same as Alesis AI-3 for the same cost, but
Ai-3 as not preamp.

A good deal is to buy it for the AD/DA and have some preamp.

Line outs are XLR, I don't understand why. 
Alesis has jacks if I remember. If you don't need 8 preamp, it is
maybe cheaper to buy Ai-3 versus ADA and 8 adapter XLR-jack  :-)
