it was easy enough for me to work it at the first contact with it recording a live gig while at the same time doing the monitors... at this time i have a x32 here in my studio and i f*ing love it! i agree the problem was not the desk itself but the people standing in front of it...

I haven't read all 38 pages of responses, but the rackmount 'V-amp' guitar modeller is one of the best I've tried for delivering that big rock JCM800 Marshall sound. It takes a little bit of tweaking, a good guitar with balanced pickups, and only a couple of the cabinet sims are clear enough to be usable (and unfortunately, those usually aren't the default on most presets ). All in all though, I can track with that or mic my Laney A5012 II (a JCM 800 clone) and no one can tell the difference. It does a fairly convincing Fender reverb sound, too. I definitely preferred it to the Line6 offerings at the time I purchased it, and I even liked it better than the Vox tube-based modeller a friend let me borrow for a weekend.

Apart from that, I have a Europower PA head that I paid about 200 bucks used for that, like the modeller, has been around 15 years and always done the job just fine. As has the rackmount Composer Pro compressor unit i've had for just as long. The latter is bit beat up and not quiet enough for recording but can be useful for smoothing over those annoyingly loud moments in action movies.

To be honest, I don't get why everyone poo-poohs on Behringer. It's obviously not high-end boutique stuff, but the quality of the products I own and have tried has always been on par or better than other items at the same price point (with the exception of their mixers trailing behind Mackie's, I think).

That said....I haven't kept up with developments in the last 15 years or so. I've heard that they're utter 'crappola' nowadays. Personally, I try not to get sold on brand names. My ELI, Warm, or Avedis gear might get more used than the few Mackie or Behringer items I own, but so long as those latter still have some conceivable use, I'll keep them around. Options are a good thing.

i guess the only drawback i've noticed is that the input/playback adjuster for monitoring is only in the 204hd version and above.. which i was used to having on my audiobox usb .. but after a couple sessions that's been pretty much forgotten about because i don't have hissy pres like the audiobox had and if you want that feature, you can still have it with the next model up. and to make up for it it has pads on the inputs to reduce volume which is pretty unique at this price point. finally a neutral point - it has 192khz .. umm..cool i guess?

overall can't really expect or want anything more from a usb interface in the 100-150$ category.. let alone 50$ category . the thing is quality (so far)

Well, my PX2000 seems to work fine.

On the other hand, both UB2442FX-Pro's I've had appear to have been built poorly, especially compared to the '80s Yamaha boards I've owned or operated. The FX on both have troubles, though I suspect in one case it's a manifestation of a PSU problem, since that died not too much later. Too bad, too, since I liked them when they were working. And to be clear, they developed faults while doing nothing more strenuous than sitting in my office. And not the same faults in both. And anyway, they're older units, though those old Yamaha's still function as good as new.

Here for the gear
 

I have a behringer eurodesk, a bass v-amp a v-ampire lx1200h, a few mins and I must say I don't see how their gear sucks. All of my gear has held up and works beautiful at a fraction of the cost of some of the big names in the audio world. I am not saying they beat out ssl and Neumann equipment but they do have some quality gear out there. Now they did have issues in the past with quality control that has gotten better. I'm getting ready to buy the new behringer x32 mixer and although it's substantially cheaper than some of the other 32 channel digital boards on the market, the price was not what made me want to get one. My eurodesk has taken a beating and kept going, I have lost a couple channels over its 12 years of being my main board It still works and it works well. I have had the good fortune to be able to mix on a ssl duality as well as a Yamaha dm2000 and both were excellent boards, but what I can say is I had someone knock a beer on my eurodesk at a live sound gig, and it kept on kicking, when I was using the ssl board a student at the school spilled water on the board and it had to be torn apart and parts replaced. The behringer so far just seems more durable. Now my eurodesk is down 2 channels and while it still works and I honestly don't need those 2 channels (never really used them much anyway) I want to move to a digital board. Their guitar amps work very well, and have a lot better modeling than line 6 or the other big amp modeling companies in my opinion. And Bugera which is part of behringer makes some amazing tube amps they sound excellent and they are affordable. A lot of people bash behringer because they aren't Mackie or some other big name company, some them because they got one or 2 bad pieces of gear, hell that happens with some of the big name companies too. Behringer is not as bad as people make them out to be, they make decent gear at affordable prices, I can't complain. Any faulty gear I have received they have always been very good at replacing for me.

Here for the gear
I have one piece of Behringer equipment in my studio and its the Xenyx Control 1 which I use as a monitor switch & controller. I had a Mackie Big Knob and it started going south on me, so I bought this as a stop gap and as it doesn't colour the sound, I've ended up keeping it - a fraction of the cost of a Mackie too.

As long as you don't push the gain on the speaker inputs at the rear, the noise floor is relatively low which is great as I have 23 sets of speakers running through it.

I also have a pair of C2's which I used once and they've been put back in the mic locker for good since. They're not bad as such, just a little tinny sounding.

Behringer v-AMP2 bass & Behringer XR18.

Unbelievable what you get with the XR18, digital mixer, multitracker and monitor mixer in one + midi I/O for the electric drummer.
Sound quality is very good, though for studio purposes I rather use my Audient ID14 + focusrite ADAT expander (Focusrite pro 26 IO).

I've been very happy with my XENYX 1202FX Mixer for the past few years. I use it on small live gigs with a few powered EV's, and it does what it's suppose to do, mostly. The FX suck, with one or two of the reverb settings being the only useful FX. Outside of this, my B experience is very limited, but this piece has done me right, especially considering that it was 100 bucks.

My MX 8000 console is still working after about 18 years. My B3031 monitors are still working. I have have a small console I use for submixing keyboards on stage. None of these have sucked.

I did have one piece of gear fail. My The Behringer Ultra Curve Pro DSP 8024 did develop some distortion at low signal levels a few years after I got it. As I seldom used the EQ and mostly use it as a spectrum analyzer, I didn't bother to inquire about getting it repaired.

Those sound like a pile of azz = typical AKM DAC blur/sizzle nonsense with the fuzzy bottom & scratchy top! The sound is flat, boring, & makes U think U need lots of EQ, so no matter how good the mic pres may B, the DAC kills the sound quality =P There is lots of cheap 'krap' on Fleabay sounds better. As in the headphone market, price has almost NOTHING 2 do with sound quality =))

N E thing Behringer makes with AKM converters in it probably has the same problem. I can cite several examples, so avoid AKM really. Although there is @ least 1 particular (non-DAC) Behringer product that sounds truly awesome, but their prices R getting 2 high, which is the EP2500 power amp =) It really was funny how when I would post this 'revelation' as a FAVOR to people on audio sites they would all ATTACK me for HELPING them find something so good yet so inexpensive! It's some pathetic poser 'kok measuring contest' thing where they think their gear is their weenie. No, U can SELL what U have & pocket the difference, FOOLS! =D

I guess my word has finally spread, as now the EP2500 R more expensive used & U can get other used items as good for less on Fleabay. It's a good amp either way, as good or better than most 'high end' stuff, & certainly better than N E 'class D' or other 'digital' amp technology, which all lack detail & slam by comparison, with a jaggy top end. & I know how it compares 4 a fact because I have worked at high end 'home theater' / 'audiophile' stores like really expensive fancy $hit 'for the $tars' LOL

McIntosh & Krell & Martin Logan R some of the worst krap around 4 instance, yet very pricey! McIntosh & Krell R like opposite ends of the problem spectrum = 1 2 sludgy, & the other 2 brittle & harsh ~ LOL!! Behringer is somewhere in the middle = a nice balance =D Spending $6,000 on some McIntosh amp won't get U that '3D' thing as good as even a Behringer EP2500, & a fancy Krell will give U 'listening fatigue' from the fakeness, rather like that 'nails on a blackboard' junk from Martin Logan & so many others.

N E thing with metal tweeters or metal ribbons is included in that list certainly! It really doesn't matter how much something costs if it has metal tweeters. It's gonna' sound horrid & jaggy on top, killing the possibilities. The best sounding tweeters ever R the Linaeum designs. Somebody should do a run of them. I'm sure the patents have all run out =) They're detailed AND smooth =D & even loud they stay clean, rather like a huge soft dome tweeter array can but even better as it doesn't have that nasal spitty sort of 'straw noise coloration' 2 it that all round tweeters have. A bazillion dollar Dynaudio 'Esotar' soft dome tweeter in some Sonus Faber "DO ME NOW!" 'Brandy Cork Sniffery Cigar Club Illuminatti Bling' speaker sounds AMAZING, but certainly much WORSE than the 'junk' Linaeum from a mini Radio Shack frot-firing Linaeum LOL!! & those R not even silk! They're PLASTIC! The SILK 1's sound even BETTER =D

If it doesn't sound awesome with heavy metal, move on. Lots of cymbals & distorted guitars & 'sibilance' R a GR8 test 4 N E 'audiophile' setup =D Classical & 'acousticy' things, which the 'audiophile' market pimps as 'gold standard' R actually extremely FORGIVING of system flaws. U want 2 play stuff that can sound really BAD on systems with flaws so U can weed out the $cam products that R just overpriced FAIL.

BTW: Don't run the Behringer EP2500 @ N E less than 7 ohms as they will shut down a lot then if driven hard. Otherwise they never do =D Also, do not bridge them. It makes the bass less clear & top end jaggy & harsh by comparison. Lastly, they R most certainly not 2,500 watts. They R really about 290 watts per channel (@ 8 ohms, which U WANT 2 run as per my advice "NEVER RUN UNDER 7 OHMS!" =) Here's a link 2 a guy who actually measured their real-world performance: http://www.avsforum.com/forum/155-di...mplifiers.html

Here's a link to a photo of the results:
http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b2...ohm-061007.jpg

The 'spec game' is so ridiculous the EP4000 is literally the same amp inside & all they have done is REMOVE some useful features from the back & list only the 'peak' power instead of RMS whatever LOL!!! Lastly, note there is a noisy fan so not great if you want total silence for 'mix monitoring' stuff @ super-low levels. U can still hear everything, but it's noisier than some quiet computers. You can always swap the fans with fancy ones, but that elevates the price on U, & might end up damaging things from overheating when driven hard if not the same CFM (air moving) specs, etc.

few pieces of gear suck. it's usually the user who does.
i mean, i've got lots of them behringer rackmount FX, power amps and a big mixer. oh, and an exciter. and mics
nothing ever failed on me? plus the sound is very good all the time.
provided the user knows what (s)he does...
for example, take this behringer mdx260 compressor.
no real flavour and sheeeet.. but it does clean transparent compression, PLUs it has a deesser, PLUS a built-in high-frequency exciter, PLUS an expander/gate. the only limitation is that the user should not add gain with the unit (one should replace the corresponding opamp first). it's a drawback sooo easy to get around... and check out the price, god dammit

Good thing you didn't get the Mackie. The little Behringers sound distictly better than the Mackies. I don't know if this is why but Behringer did use better opamps.

A few years back, being poor I decided to do an all-Behringer studio experiment. Didn't end so well and I quickly traded up when the first wave of StudioLive mixers came out. The biggest issue I had was durability. Behry gear isn't built to last.

That being said, I still have the patchbays. No issues there. I liked the V-Verb when it worked. ADA8000 was a usable piece of gear and for a while I had four of those going into a Presonus interface (I forget the model name and am too lazy to Google it.) The one I'm really missing right now though is the B2031a's. I should have hung on to those. I've got Equators now which are very nice and not nearly as overkill as the Truths, but I miss the way the low end came out on the Behry's. My mixes are much better now, but I do sometimes feel like I'm flying blind on the low end.

Hi Derp, (love the name by the way )

Thanks for sharing your opinions here. Like most other brands we never claim that we are perfect, however given the sheer volume of products we make some of biggest authorized retailers of audio gear are still able to boast that we have one of the lowest failure rates of any audio electronic manufacturer in the industry. We invite you to verify this with companies like Thomann.com and Sweetwater.com

I feel it's worth mentioning mention this list of national and touring acts that would disagree with your conclusions that "Behry gear isn't built to last". Surely if this were the case then these bigger names in the industry wouldn't even considering using it in these types of situations.

For any of those times when issues an issue arises then we invite you to reach out to our CARE department for additional assistance. We can be reached by phone at 702-800-8290 (US) or +44 1562 732290 (UK) or by sending us an email to [email protected] and one of our technical CARE specialists will be glad to assist you.

Well it's such a pity those contact numbers were not on the Behringer website when the diaphragm of my B-1 microphone went faulty and, after the retailer played awkward, I fruitlessly searched for a means of obtaining a new one to fit myself. According to the Behringer website, the only point of contact was a UK agent who said "Sorry, we don't carry that part, and I don't know if it's even possible to obtain one."

Consequently, two years or so later, that microphone is sitting in a drawer dead and useless thanks to appalling and unreachable Behringer customer support. Furthermore, I wouldn't be surprised if this situation has not changed. I have no intention of checking the website now because I don't want to risk wasting my time being sent round in circles and dead-ends yet again.

Well look at that endorsement list and then look at the list of people that have professionally used high-end gear or even Mackie. By contrast, it's short and doesn't have the impressive names behind it. If anybody on that list is routinely using any of your gear, I doubt they're doing it without a backup.

I can appreciate that you're trying to clean up your reputation now that there's a few products coming out that aren't strictly knockoffs and even some high-dollar gear in the mix, but denying that there were some severe QC issues in the past seems like a bad move concerning patching things up. As a notorious example, there's this thread: Behringer V-Verb. The V-Verb was an INCREDIBLE sounding unit, but multiple times throughout that thread, it was recommended that anyone buying one should get two because one will fail, and over and over again, people reported the unit dying out on them. I myself bought one of the last few to come out and it crapped out within a month.

The V-Verb is far from the only piece from Behry that has met this high standard of failure. In my aforementioned Behringer experiment, I had an Autocom, Tube Composer, MIC2200, one out of my four ADA8000's, a V-Amp Pro, Einstein, SL3242FX, MiniMon, and one of my B2031A's all die on me, most of these beyond recovery. Granted, at the time I had a LOT of silver in my racks, but nobody else has failure rates like this. By contrast, I've got many gazillions of dollars tied into a modular system with a ton of tiny little manufacturers, many of them just building this stuff in their basements with little to no QC. You know how many of those modules have failed? None.

Granted, I haven't read of much failure in the last couple years, so hopefully the QC has been fixed, but I still think the best move you can make to regain the trust of your potential customers is to admit there was a problem and show that you're working to fix it. I'd love to buy an X32 if I thought that it might last more than a year.

How is failure rate calculated? Assume it has to be reported be end users somehow. Pretty sure when most people's behringer gear dies they just throw it in the trash (like i did with mine). Unless it was allready DOA when i popped the box i wouldnt report the failure to anyone.

Hi Ianpb,

I am sorry to hear about the trouble you have experienced in the past regarding your B-1 Microphone and trying to reach support. Personally, I can sympathize with your frustration (having experienced this myself with other companies) in regards to not being able to find an actual contact number on a manufacturer's website, and it's apparently becoming more and more popular these days. Any of our reps have the ability to provide customers with guidance for contacting our support service centers or CARE facilities directly, so we apologize that this was not handled correctly in the past.

For the past several years we've been working hard on implementing better measures to offer direct support to customers who need it. In addition to Community Specialists like myself who reach out to customers on forums and social media, we have been making significant improvements to our infrastructure to provide help and support to our customers that need it. Our website has recently been completely redone with a section dedicated for support. Here you can provide your personal contact information to us in written form, and this way a dedicated CARE technician can reach out you directly via phone or email if you prefer.

I invite anyone to send me a direct message here and on social media if there is anything I can do to offer support of guidance in regards your BEHRINGER products in the future. I'll be glad to assist in any way I can.

While it's obvious from reading your comments that that artists like Foreigner, Elton John, Earth Wind and Fire and Daryl Hall don't interest you, but that doesn't make them any less relevant in the music biz. These are huge, well known artists in the industry that could easily choose any equipment they want when performing. Just to be clear, to my knowledge we've never paid for a single artist endorsement, and most times these artists reach out to us after purchasing their own equipment and having great experiences with them.

It's true that we've been making great strides in improving our current product offerings and creating new an exciting products for the future. I never said that we are perfect or denied that we've have QC issues in the past, but we have been making strides towards improving this over the past several years. But don't take my word for it, here's a post Uli Behringer himself made on the subject back in 2012.

Again, I'm not saying that BEHRINGER equipment of failure, but this perception that all of our stuff fails all the time is simply not true. This is indicated by our incredibly low overall failure rates. (typically less than 1%) Maybe you just had some bad luck with our gear in the past, maybe you didn't, but no manufacturer can guarantee 0% product failure no matter how big or small they are. Here's another post by Uli where this is explained in greater detail.

This is exactly what we've been doing, improving our overall manufacturing practices and support operation to try and help ensure our customers have the best experience possible when choosing to use BEHRINGER products.

In regards to X32, we've received numerous SOS and user choice awards over the past three years (including best mixing product several times) and sold over 500k+ units worldwide. This is directly attributed to the fact that they are great products that are highly affordable and serve as a useful mixing/recording desk for a plethora of live performance and studio applications. One thing is for sure, X32 has been a game changer in the industry.

Hi ctothej123,

Thanks for sharing your comments here as well. How failure rate is calculated is explained here in this post. Of course, for us to know about a product failure the customer has to either report it directly to us or to the authorized retailer where the unit was purchased, otherwise we'd have no way of knowing that there was an issue.

I dunno about you guys, but when I personally have a product I bought experience a problem, I contact the manufacturer and at least enquire the best way to resolve the issue, not just blindly throw it in the trash. Making such a broad generalization like that about BEHRINGER customers doing this is quite extreme. We have an extensive 3-year warranty on all BEHRINGER products, so if a problem occurs then our CARE department will gladly assist customers with dealing with it. DOA products claims are not exclusive to BEHRINGER, as this can happen with any manufacturer. In this case, a quick exchange with any of our authorized retailers takes care of the situation.

The new CT200 cable tester does not suck.

And I just watched them release new firmware for the X32, as well as redesigned apps for the PC and tablet platforms, and then communicate with the users to identify and fix the small number of issues over a two-week period. So I've got respect for people who are being cautious, but if you've written off Behringer completely, you're missing out.

I'm a live sound guy, and for me its all about the iNukes and a DCX2496 to manage them all.

The iNukes aren't the cleanest amps in the world, but the combination of power, price and weight is hard to beat.

I have had two of those mixers and a number of the pot meters have become flaky on both of them.

Yeah, their mixer line s...s a...s. Cheap crappy nonsense that goes bad pretty quickly.

I may have already mentioned it, but picked up a super cheap mackie little job (like 49 new) and not only has it be ace in quality, it most certainly sounds better

That little mix 5? So handy. Wonderful buy.

I'm really digging the peq 305. Great utility eq. I've got three of them now. Clean eq, doesn't degrade the audio by just running through the unit. I use higher end eq's for more important elements, but i have no problem using these in a mix

Just a personal experience.
I bought the ADA8200.
And it sucked. Turned out the (internal) power supply is ****. I had mains hum on every input channel even with nothing connected and ADAT out. But i managed to fix it with a different power supply.

At the same time i also bought the XR12 mixer box.
And that one doesn't suck!
I'm actually very very surprised how well it sounds for such a cheap ass mixer!
