Amazing huh the guys who can't afford over priced amps that cost sooo much less to produce and get a 3 to 4x mark up are psyched because they might be able to get a tube amp that kicks ass without having to re-mortgage their houses and guys who are being snobbish getting upset about a cheap amp that may sound good and feel like they've been ripped off or afraid that their status amongst amp owners will have been revoked lmao too ****************in funny. Thanks for the reviews Norton now i'm looking forward to ordering a 333
Lol, 3x to 4x markup? for a Mesa MkIV? actually its more like 10x or more. The PCB costs about $5 in volume of 5000 or more. The normal electronic components on there probably costs them another $5. If the pots are really good then maybe another few dollars for them. Then you have tubes and the transformer.
I've had 3 pieces of Behringer equipment. 2 works great. the last one also worked great, one problem. the Truth monitors picked up a radio station without anything plugged into it except the power cord. Now to be fair, I live within a stone throw of, count them, 4, yes 4 giant radio towers with radio, TV, microwave, cell, and god knows what else on them.
But still with proper shielding they should have been fine but they weren't so had to send them back. It sounded great, just like the reviews and just like some of the reviews, it picked up radio. This certainly wouldn't stop me from getting another piece of behringer though. Just not their active monitors. Their price point is awesome and if it works well then i keep it, if not send it back.
