« Nice little mixer »

Published on 06/14/12 at 17:53
Non-rackable....Quite small but nothing is miniature...All full sized faders, etc...
The connection types are all analog...1/4 instrument cable inputs/outputs...
EQ is limited to basics but quite workable and impressive...Each input has a trim pot to adjust input...It's a nice sounding adjustment...

There are also built-in FX that are pretty ok...If used sparingly, they are more than adequate...But if you want a wet reverb you might wanna look elsewhere,,,It can do it, just not as convincingly as I hoped...

The build is sufficient but I wouldn't expect it to handle much rough treatment,,,It's not a delicate flower by any standard, just not "built like a tank." Whatever that means now anyway...

UTILIZATION

Everything is accessible and easy to use...

No problems hooking up and was using it 15 minutes after it arrived...

Manual is good and there's a lot of info online via forums and reviews like these...

There is one sticky point I have...It uses a special power connection...That sucks as mine broke and I had to order a special power supply...

SOUNDS

No audible hiss unless you are using it improperly...The EQ is minimal but effective enough...It's not tweak able in any way but that's fine...It's meant to be a bare bones do it all mixer...

The preamps are just fine for live use and home recording...I wouldn't expect to see them anywhere else aside from places of worship (God apparently LOVES Behringer as you see more of their stuff there than Guitar Center :) ) Anyway, I digress...

To get right to the main point - Does this deliver the goods in a small package? Yes, not my first choice for digital recording but more than fine for a small PA setup... This thing is everything you would hope and more - it's worth more than the asking price in my opinion...

OVERALL OPINION

I like the small size and ease of use most...

I dislike the special power supply and cheap build...

I like that it sounds as good as higher priced competitors just doesn't look or feel like them...If you close your eyes, most wouldn't hear a difference...

Precision? I don't know...It doesn't color the tone of anything beyond adding FX (if desired) and EQ...

I would buy it again and might just have to as I hear something rattling around the inside of mine... :) True...Still sounds and works fine so I am not sweating it...

I own much better and higher end mixers but there's something really nice about gigging with a cheaper alternative...You can leave your good setup safely at home and use this Behringer gear for shows...Just treat it nicely and you'll have a long,loving relationship...
