zeetoon's review"Good quality."

Behringer Eurorack MX1602A
Very simple console, I make use of it in a very rudimentary way because it only serves me to listen to music. I used its mic preamps for some time, in the beginning, and I wasn't too dissatisfied with them, although that was 20 years ago, so I can't be really objective. In any case, I use it every day and I have never had any problems with it. The faders don't crackle...I must say that it always stays in my home studio. I've only moved it twice, inside its original box.

UTILIZATION

I don't think it could be any easier to use...

SOUNDS

No noise, it's transparent to my ears. Edirol M 16DX or Echo Mia Midi at the input, Tapco S5 at the output. I haven't used it to record in a very long time.

OVERALL OPINION

The only console I had before was a Tascam MM20, coupled with a 4-track tape recorder...
The pros: It will go unnoticed.
The cons: It wasn't conceived for sound engineers, so nothing.

Petit zicos's review"Good value for money...in 1996"

Behringer Eurorack MX1602A
Rack-mountable console, if you find the brackets for it...or you make them yourself.
XLR and 1/4" jack
For more detailed features see more comprehensive reviews.

I'd add that, for the price, you shouldn't expect too much. In 1996 I didn't question the lack of 1 or 2 subgroups that I miss right now.
Modern mixers have them.
On the other hand, mixing consoles with four stereo lines and the same value for money are pretty rare.
They are very useful for keyboards and other sound generators.
Within this category, if it had 4 more mono lines and 2 subgroups, it would be the best.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to set up.
It child's play in terms of use.

The manual includes a diagram of the electronics. It's very well-made and allows you to easily understand what happens inside and where the controls take effect.

SOUNDS

Very little induced noise of the line inputs.
However, you do get some with the line inputs to the max and the master set to 60% - 70% of the travel, and it increases gradually.
So you should use it below this point.
But we are talking of an entry-level product, so you shouldn't expect a professional performance or complain if the sound isn't the best, just remember the price you paid for it.

I avoid the EQs, I try to find a setup in which everything remains set to "0". I only used them once inside a cellar to reduce the low frequencies that were all over the place.

Twice I've used it with a musician friend of mine who has the same console to better manage the inputs and, especially, the PA system, so we cascaded them. Everything worked fine and nobody in the audience ever noticed what we did. You need to adjust the levels correctly to stay below the noise threshold.
I think the noise is always there and if you use a big amp you could hear it, but in our case it works fine.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it new 15 years ago and it has not a single wrinkle yet.
Before I used to have two small consoles that aren't even worth mentioning. Too much noise. I wouldn't have had the means to get this small mixer if it had existed back then. Just to give you an idea, the first one had only DINs and the second one only RCA + 1/4" jacks. But that was last century, back in the '80s. I used to make my own amps with kits, etc...

I must also admit that I'm a bit more careful than most. It travels in a small hard case surrounded by cushions, while the screwdriver and hammer travel in another case.

I've never had noise problems with the pots or faders.

I use it for keyboards and some mics.
The times I've played with a band I've used it to only send two jacks (L/R) to the main PA system. I'm always below the threshold where it starts making noise and the audio engineer have never complained.

Withing this context, I would buy it again.
Today I probably wouldn't buy it secondhand without being able to test everything thoroughly, not even for $50. You never know who has put his hands on it.

TJGeeter's review"Loved it"

Behringer Eurorack MX1602A
This mixer is pretty good as most of the Behringer mixers are. The Eurorack series have been involved in my set up for a long time and I have never had any issues with them.

UTILIZATION

There are mono XLR and stereo inputs and a simple 2 band EQ. It would have been great to have a full 5 band EQ though.

SOUNDS

No hissing, sounds great!

OVERALL OPINION

But overall I enjoyed working with this mixer for some live shows.

Régis's review"Great little mixer"

Behringer Eurorack MX1602A
Decently priced when it came out, which is when I bought it. It died on me in 2010 after a glass of water was spilled over it while being on. Small kids running in the home studio...not good.

It has everything you need to start out, phantom power, XLR stereo and mono input, effects send and return with control...
There are better and more expensive ones.

UTILIZATION

It's simple, so it allows you to learn everything about connections and mixing.
Clear user's manual.

SOUNDS

No noise, solid, rugged, well-made.

It certainly is an electronic and technical product, so if you are too brute don't be surprised if it falls apart in pieces.

OVERALL OPINION

A bit outdated today, but it was very, very good when it came out and it allowed me to mix more instruments!
I never regretted buying it.


I then bought a rack-mountable model of the brand that fits in several rack Us, I still miss this small mixer a bit.
