The Features- There are so many. 125 presets, totally customizable, and there's a way to erase all you've customized, or just some, and make them factory presets again. Amazing digital effects on board. Distortion isn't very def metal type out of the box, but you can tweak it ANY way you want and get ANYTHING you want. Everything you need in this little amp, all the effects, 32 amp models, and something like 14 speaker cabinet simulations. Quality- Everything is great, it's very sturdy and steady. The ONLY (and I mean ONLY) thing cheap are the screws holding on the protective chrome corners, the corners themselves are great and shiny, but the screws look like they've been used before. Can't go wrong with this, the only thing comparable to this in marshall's line up would be the AVT series, and this is better for the money. Plus, you can get the Behringer cab for less, and it handles a solid 400 watts RMS. Footswitch included, makes it very nice but there is a tiny pause (about a half second) when switching between channels. Comes with an a**-load of features, built in tuner and the noise gate really really works. For once, I can say that the auto-wah actually isn't horrible! Sounds good with some the amp setting "Savage Beast". Look, if you want marshall tone, spend the big bucks for a half stack, but if you want high quality digital effects for a mere pittance, buy this sweet head. Can do 2X60 watts stereo, or a solid 120 watts mono.

I purchased this amp April 1st, 2006. I was impressed by the features (amp simulations, effects) advertised for this head. Those features are great. The amp simulations sounded great and the efeects are tremendous. The footswitch is a srolling footswitch and it only allows you to select from presets within a bank; to select a new bank, you must press the button on the head itself. You can tweak all of the presets and even recall the factory presets at the press of a few buttons. In my experience, what has been stated before about this head not being loud is true; its not a loud head. I played it on a Behringer BG412S stereo 4x12 cab. I activated the volume boost and had the amp turned up to full. I had it on the metal bank and was using what should have been a loud, heavily distorted metal setting. The head was run both mono and stereo and I could yell over it and be heard. Most of the other settings are not as loud as that one. Additionally, I tried it with each stereo and live setting (S1, S2, S3, L1 & L2). None of that helped with the volume. Secondly, the head, after about 20 minutes of use, started making a VERY loud electronic buzz, louder than the amp itself, like something was frying inside. But I could not play through it when it made the noise. Also, the head emmitted a burning smell while making the noise. This happened twice. I've returned the amp to MF and they've been great about it. With a better footswitch, more watts and not burning up, it would be a great amp. A MIDI controller would solve the footswitch problem but would run an extra $150.00. If this head was say 100 watts per side stereo, would probably work as far as volume is concerned. Behringer is a good comany; I own other equipment by them and am satisfied. I would purchase this head again if they can work out the kinks. MF has a great return policy so you could buy this amp (hoping to get one that won't burn up) if you're just looking for a studio head. Live, this head won't do, though, for my purposes.

I bought this head from a friend of mine over a year ago and ive loved it ever since. The only fault i find with it is its just not loud as other heads i have been seeing like a Peavey XXX or a Mesa. I play in a grindcore band and this has the settings i need and love to play with. If you play in a Metal band then get this, if not well then you may not like it at all. Fair Warning.
I first tried this amp because i had a 60 Watt version of this and it was very good, so i wanted to see how the head was. It is definitly as good as the 60 watt. The effects might not be the best but people, thats why pedals were made. I usually run a Boss DS-1 and a Crybaby Original wah through it and it is amazing. And my usual guitars i use with it are a Fender Mexican Telecaster and a B.C. Rich Mockingbird The sound is clear and the volume can go from late-night practicing to some decent size gigs depending on your cab. This is definetly worth your money.
I just got this thing for my brithday with a Bugera cab... this thing is pretty dang cool. I was a little skeptical about the LX1200H but it suited some of my demands. It has some pretty good effects in it, especially the tremolo and echo. Reverb is nice too but not too well, and there were a few good amp modeling. But overall, this thing is really worth it!
These are great. You have to spend some time with the patches - on your computer is best. If you do this, and perhaps download some from the Behriger site, it is great. Light, powerful, clear, simple once you understand it, and sounds great. Best part is you can use it as a effects unit into another amp or direct to a sound system if you like. For the price, its great.
Endless effects;great wah. The gain is no marshall but it is good. The reverb is horrible on it but considering everything else it is great quality and is at a great price. I have had it for 5 years and I have only had to replace the input jack. Good buy if you are looking for professional sound and quality.
I bought this amp because it came with a package deal, I wanted the speaker cabinet it was setting on. It was almost new. I tried to play out with it and it was bad. After the first set I plugged in my old amp. If gave it to my 15 year old son and he loves it. A lot of effects and even a tuner is built in. If you are a kid it is great. But thats about it. Well worth it I guess, but not to me.
I wish people would stop believing you can get tube sounds out of a "modeling" amp. You just cant. Especially not with this one. One of my friends has one of these and I have played it extensively. you cannot get even close to the sound of a Rectifier with this even though it has a setting for that programmed in. The distortion on this thing is weak, solid-state mud! It does have some nice effects on it and you can get some cool clean sounds if you fiddle with the settings. But it doesnt sound anything like a Rectifier or a Marshall no matter what you do to it.
I got this head after having used the V-Amp 2 extensively for my recordings, knowing that this head has the same brain. Those who think that this head isn't loud enough is obviously not using it right, because it is LOUD (for starters, set it to L2)! I have this plugged into an old Peavey 212ST cabinet and when cranked to the max, I could feel the floor shaking beneath me.What I love the most about this head is the fact that I can transfer my old V-Amp 2 patches into it using a MIDI/USB cable and the free software at Behringer's website so that by all rights, I have the same sound live as I do in the studio. Some of the knobs do come out very easily, so be gentle and it will reward you.
This is an amazing value for what you get. I have the v-ampire in several configurations and this head works wonderfully. You have to set up the outputs and overall EQ to fit whatever speaker cabinet you are using - then it's all tone.I highly recommend going to the Behringer website and downloading some of their user created patches. They really bring these to another level. I have a cusom created set of patches for another V-amp device and it was super simple to just program them all into this head via computer. The only downside to these is that they are not made to be repaired. At this price, use it a few years and get something else. You won't be sorry if you read the directions.
This amp is pretty much bad, I didnt like it. First the distortion is too weak!!! The effects are useless the sound is just not loud enough. This thing is weak it shouldnt even be called an amp it should be called a cramp.
