Okay so the only negative about this mixer is that it does not have USB...but that's probably why it was on sale at such a great low price (besides you can always connect it to a PC/laptop with an audio interface (such as the Behringer UCA222 - currently on its way to me from Thomann) which makes this mixer very usable in a computer recording environment. It has a very compact footprint, and boasts enough inputs (XLR and line) to keep most solo/duet acts happy.
Very happy with the quality of the build, the pots seem quite good, and feel nicely responsive to the touch and of a higher quality than I was expecting on a budget mixer such as this. Preamps and the EQ give a nice tone, and strong signal to work with in a DAW (I have not used the mixer live yet), and the phantom power works great on my condenser. While we often say that you get what you paid for, I don't think that;s the case here, as 1. it was on sale at a really good price, and 2. Behringer always seems to give a little more value/spec in products such as these when compared to other brands. The LEDs work fine, and a couple of sliders as opposed to rotary pots would have been nice but I guess that is a budget/footprint consideration again, and Behringer kept both small by sticking with pots.
Depends on your studio/live set-up, but you should probably invest in a couple of RCA to RCA and RCA to TRS cables to get the most out of this mixer - a couple of years ago I reviewed my extensive (!) cable collection and seriously considered chucking out all my RCA cables as I NEVER used them, and thought I never would...how wrong I was!! Luckily us tech/musicians are pack rats and we NEVER throw cables away..!! Or is that just me..?!!?
