      If only this were true. Unfortunately the truth of the matter is that the components are cheaper and the workmanship is subpar.

            Good post but as usual it's pretty myopic...yes, if you are a loud rock band and want that loud rock band PA thing happening you might be better off renting IF you can afford to (i.e. your gigs pay well enough to cover rentals).

            I was once in a rock band where if the take was less than the sound company's fee they were guaranteed 75% of the take!!!! Turned out this was almost ALL of our gigs More than once I went home with $5 in my pocket.

            It amazes me how many people seem to NEVER do gigs where the band needs to provide a PA and a small vocals only system is all that is needed. More power to you and I'll happily play all those gigs you're passing up

              Behringer = unreliable crap

              It's cheap for a reason. Avoid using Behringer stuff in any important position of your signal chain.

              I too, succumbed to the lure of cheap gear and bought Behringer stuff. It didn't last very long at all.

                I had more Behringer stuff fail on my gig tonight. The soundman lost two channels over the course of four hours. Based on that math, a 32-channel board should last a solo singer/guitarist through 16 two-hour gigs.

                  The only Behringer gear I would ever reccomend is a compressor (and that is for a compressor on a tight budget).

                    For recording I use a Behringer UB1222FX and I think it's awesome. It doesn't go on gigs and just stands in the studio, actually, but i think you can get great quality sound out of it, just know how to use it.

                      I see you're still recommending beginners power 1,200w subs with 3,400 watts and suggesting they rewire UL-listed power distribution with Powercons that you can only buy from a relatively few sources. What do you recommend they do when the powercon cord's too short and the only place open is Home Depot? And yes, that's before they've launched a pair of $600 JBL drivers into the parking lot with 3x rated power.

                      Your heart's in the right place, but this stuff is bad advice for beginners.

                        Sure, if you've never experience something else
                        What is this sorcery?

                              True. :P

                              but for it's price, you can't beat it, really. I paid 200 euro's for that thing, that isn't a lot.

                              This is a drum piece recorded with that thing

                                Does anyone know why the channels crap out on Behringer boards? Has anyone had them repaired?
