As I mentionned earlier, Behringer and Mackie preamps are very similar. Behringer is know for "reverse engineering" competitiors product. Their preamps are basically the same with just a few components changed so they can get away with it (and Behringer cuts more corner to build them).
But honestly, it's not like Mackie is a reference... They're good at marketing, but their products are average at best.
