Behringer Reference Amplifier A500
Bought there 7 or 8 is used in ans.Je Hifi salon.
The advantage as his power, price, and lack of fan that makes it a RVer for use in living room.
I Mount in power amplifier (of course) a pr derrire Hifi amp for use Hifi and Home Cinma music with speakers Focal Cobalt.

Beringher at about 300.00 and as much as 1000.00 in ROTEL. These amplifier, like the small speakers THRUTH B2030 or 2031 a system that can couraging Home cinma TRS has good quality "lesser" cot that surprise many. I took it all in a high-end Hi-Fi dealer to compare in situ and the dealer does "blown your exact. ...

gaumet's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Mine was unreliable"

Behringer Reference Amplifier A500


* For how long have you been using it?

Used for three and a half years of sporadic as amply stereo (with a Behringer 800 as MINIMON line preamp / headphone selector and sources).

* What thing do you like most/least about it?

His qualities as amply hifi / studio is quiet (no fan), relatively strong for this purpose (2x160W into 8 ohms), seemed rather bland musically. The housing and assembly are a reassuring solidity. HP plugs are models that accept screw bare wire or banana plugs (after removal of small plugs central catch). Jacks also Outputs. The inputs are on phono or RCA jacks (balanced or not) or XLR.

Defects are: mine was not reliable: random spitting on the right track after three years, not related to the potentiometer input, more and more frequent until it is unusable. It has not yet been subjected to torture issue Use: Indoors on a pair of Behringer Truth 2030P (the module of impedance of the test is not insurmountable) listened to 2 or 3 meters often moderate volume. The plastic front (like buttons potentiometers) can be fun for some but a little fragile and low-end.

* Did you try many other models before getting this one?

quite a hifi amp or current audiophile Class A or AB, mainly transistors

* What is your opinion about the value for the price?

As he was walking: good or very good.

* Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...

Behringer Reference Amplifier A500
Hsitation with amps Alesis monitors. The construction of the Behringer seemed healthier so I bought 188 euros Thomann, Q / P unbeatable!

I use it for 2 years. No problem!

The big plus of this amp I think is its simple design, which allows it to easily and tweeks trs trs significantly increase its quality:

- Condos of chemical 10uF replaced with 10uF MKP.
- Replacement of 2 PDO on each channel by more efficient (eg OPA2604)

Dj this level without the effort means a big diffrence in the mediums - acute.

- What we can do more:

The problem is that the recovery of 50Hz is on the map of the amp. So you get much above the hum of the speakers with high efficiency. The filter is 2 * 3300/100V by which one can lg for power ad.
I'm the transformer dport + recovery + Added filtering by 20000uF/100V in a external enclosure. Low and the S / N ratio should be improved.

Behringer Reference Amplifier A500

I have this amp for less than one and I am very happy jen

- What is so special that you like most and least?
I use it with a guitar and an amp ST360 Storm MIC200 the same brand and I power level never exceeds half the knob.
In an evening with Kool anceinte Sounnd in bridged mode very good sound quality
And how silent 0dB

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
Only two, a boost PA-2400 (not the same range) and a Yamaha RX-V396RDS (hi-fi amplifier) ​​but without the preamp

- How would you rate the quality / price?
Very good € 220 on the internet (plus € 68 for the preamp) and RAS all is good

For power and use in the evening but yes I will invest in a line6 amp for my gutar

Behringer Reference Amplifier A500
I own this amp for a ten months.
I like the LED meter seen that are near, we can see the power delivered, if you installed the sound or not (compared to an amp with just a LED signal). It has no fan, but he does not need it and has already shot the entire night of techno-bottom and did not budge.
What I like least, that's power, it is quickly fully. I used Jamis amp sound before, just a stereo amp Yamaha equivalent power.
For the price, I find it a lot.
If the choice had to be rebuilt, I think I am a model that has more power, but good for partying with pal it turns a lot, it's an amp monitoring, you must not ask for a 2cv roll like a F1 ...

PS: I have sent for service because it did not work suddenly.

Behringer Reference Amplifier A500
I bought it 3 weeks ago.
it feeds two Rams 200.
it is clear that never turns a background (the room is rather small)
I liked the look, the power of 160w/8homs me more than enough.
it heats without excess ... the cast is rather nice: 189Euros.
on the evening entertainment .... I prefer to run with
qsc my .... I do not know if it would take a whole night !!!!.
was used mainly in home studios all .. I fawn
think it was created for that.

Régis's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer Reference Amplifier A500
Voil 3 or 4 months I use it. RAS.
What I like is its cooling Systm (without ventillo).
connections. His line, discreet logo. saw the meters. the quality of the pots.
I I like least is that it lacks a bit of sauce.
AUDIOLINE before I had the same power as little power, which cram (as I had once the ventillo too noisy) oops! but he kept the cost four years!
report quality price is excellent. it is still necessary to find the best price.
if it is again, I am back on me ^
I think even take a second (by one vote) in bridge mode
