Acquired through American Musical Supply. Shipment arrived earlier than the estimated date (very cool!). I ordered the mixer through AMS's website. I bought the unit for use with live performance with bands and also for home recording. Paid 79$ for the unit, shipping was about 5$.
The board has four xlr inputs on it. Each one has Behringer's great sounding mic preamp included. These four channels have high, mid, and low eq. These same four channels, in addition to your standard level knob, also have a gain knob. This board has a lot of potential gain if you're starting with a weak signal. The master fader is a slider...nice for things like fading in or out. RCA Tape input/output...nice for either running a cd player into the board, or running your mix out to a recording device. The headphone level rotary knob is nice. Each channel has an FX send.
Most of my complaints about the board could be alleviated by spending more money on a board with more features. The independant channels have rotary knobs for the level adjusters. EQ for only the first four channels. It would be nice to have EQ for the tape input, although a workaround can be had by using one of the four EQ channels and converting your RCA CD player output to a 1/4" jack.
Construction seems solid, for the most part. There are some slots on the underside of the board for the area around where the power supply hooks up. This area can get somewhat hot. I usually put an old cd case underneath the right side of the board to give it some breathing room. It seems odd to me that behringer didn't put slots on the right side of the unit, as most of the time the side of the unit would have more room for venting hot air.
I like the board very much. For my simple uses for it (live band use + personal recording studio), its more than I need at this point. If you have many instruments to run through a board, and you're looking to have EQ on every channel, this is not the board for you. If you're looking for an easy-to-use board with four EQ'd, xlr'd channels + eight 1/4" basic channels (db level and FX level), then this board will work for you. Its also very small, so if you're looking for a board that requires little effort to transport, pick one of these babies up.
Small non-rack console (unlike the 1204), 4 mono inputs XLR (with phantom power supply) / 4 stereo jack and Jack, and Control Room output hand jack, RCA input and output types, output pramplifie headphone jack stro.equaliseurs three stripes on the mono input.
The use is of extreme simplicity. Reading the manual is limited voluntary, but this one is clear and trs Retailer. The abscence of poru faders control the volume of diffrent between fact lose some precision but it is all acceptable.
The console has not yet produced a breath audible during use, however, an audible breath is pushing the gain and volume of the bottom four mono inputs. The equalizer is not of an absolute precision, but it remains useful even when recording.
I use it now in a home studio for 3 months (it silent before the local BPS, for lack of sufficient number amps). Trs is satisfactory for some recordings I did, and to mix the output of computers and the keyboard to the amp. It also has the advantage not prndre nd place (which m 'adcide from the 1204 (MODEL substantially the same but with the volume control for each channel fader), the that allows you to place it on an office cot computers. At that price the more difficult it is (can be from Alesis, and again ...).
