Here's my first impression after unboxing, mounting and doing a simple, quick test of the mixer. On the plus side, the unit feels sturdy, has a nice, substantial weight to it, is constructed well and has a sleak, industrial look. The jacks and rotary knobs feel professional and are not flimsy. Setting up a quick test configuration of my Roland Gaia synth running into stereo channel 1 and my headphones coming out of the phones jack of the unit was easy and intuitive for the most part. There are several stages of gain / level control, from the source device itself, the channel's gain, the master gain and the independent left and right levels. This offers flexibility but is also somewhat of a con, as I'll explain below. Operation and adjustment of parameters was, again, super easy and intuitive. It's a comfortable and fun board to use.

On the flip side, I found mounting of the unit into my rack to be grueling and painful. I have several other units, including a PreSonus board and power conditioner, in the rack and had no difficulty mounting those, but I had to fight with the Behringer to force it into place, as the unit was nearly too wide for the rack space. Once I finally got it into place, it is seated well and looks good, but that experience was more difficult than it should have been. Also, the product description boasts ultra low noise operation even at high levels, but I experienced some line noise when turning up my synth and the headphone output of the unit. I experimented a bit with the different gain settings, but because there are so many of them to adjust between your source signal and your output, it's kind of a tricky prospect to find a good balance. Perhaps this just comes down to further experimentation on my part, but again, I feel this should not be so difficult.

Overall, I'm really excited to have found such a feature-rich, professionally built and good-looking mixer for my studio, and I'm eager to play around with it more and get it hooked up to the rest of my gear. I was willing to spend twice as much on a board, but nothing else I looked at had the right combination of inputs, outputs and flexibility, so I believe I really got a sweet deal with this board.

I purchased 2 of these mixers about a month ago and find that they will have to go back for repair or exchange. It's taken that long to configure my rack with enough devices to plug in but now I find that one unit had 3 bad channels straight out of the box and the rest are noisy so did not hook it up at all.The other unit has every right channel missing (non-functional) on 5 of the eight channel pairs in a configuration where I am using (Ex.) Channel 1 as L and Channel 2 as R.First purchase and am very unhappy, dissatisfied, and sorry I counted on Behringer for a quality piece of gear.

    This product is designed to mix up to 8 line-level audio sources into 1 line-level output to an amplifier. It works well, produces a clear and clean sound, and is very easy to use.

    I was hyptnotized by the single rack space unit, but I actually needed EQ's also and failed to consider that until I got it. I needed to ship it back and exchange it, customer service was outstanding and handled it all lightening fast....and get what I really needed this time.....thanks guys.

    Comments about Behringer Eurorack Pro RX1602 Line Mixer:

    Ok I was looking for a little rack mixer to use with all my older midi gear. I have been looking around for a while and though I would give this a try. So far so good. I hooked it up 1,2,3 balanced outputs to my Focusrite Sapphire pro 40. I can hear no difference in the sound quality from the midi gear to the Focusrite inputs. I did have to set the input on all the channels to +4 DB since it would over load them at -10 DB. I did hear a difference in the sound from the head phone jack it sounded brighter. That to me is not a big deal since I will use the Focusrite head phone to monitor. The head phones are Sony MDR V6. Good bang for the buck and I hope it will last. Knocking off 1 star for for the detente balance controls.

        Comments about Behringer Eurorack Pro RX1602 Line Mixer:

        Needed a stereo line mixer for my midi studio. I already had a Behringer X1832usb as my main mixer, so I desided to give the RX1602 a try. I was not disappointed. With the RX1602, I was able to output all my instruments in stereo, making a WORLD of difference. The unit has very little background noise and give you the basic functions needed: pan, level, mute, and effects send. Most of my keyboards have onboard effects so I don't use the effects send. I use the unit on average 3 to 4 hours daily and have had no problems. Great mixer at a good price.

            I am now using two RX1602 Line Mixers to consolidate outboard gear used in the studio. I am very impressed with the sound quality as these line mixers maintain the true sound characteristics of instruments such as Moog Voyagers.

              Works great for a reasonably priced mixer for our drummer to run loops and click track. Easy to use for panning tracks and click as well as mixing in the band monitor mix.

                A must for any keyboard rig

                Comments about Behringer Eurorack Pro RX1602 Line Mixer:

                I can't add anything of value to the descriptions and reviews already here, so why try?

                I can tell you this: I used to own one of these, and I sold it a couple of years ago. I've bought and sold a lot of gear over the years, and I've never regretted selling most of it. I *do* regret selling the RX1602 -- enough that I bought another one last year.

                And I just bought another one from MF, because it's one of the most integral pieces of my rig. if it were lost, stolen, or damaged, I'd need a replacement ASAP.
                Behringer gets dinged a lot, but I've had great luck with these rack mixers. Good quality jacks, and a nice heavy frame.
                There's nothing out there in the price range that matches the features.

                Excellent Practicality

                By Jaymes Sorenson

                from California

                Comments about Behringer Eurorack Pro RX1602 Line Mixer:

                Overall this mixer is a bargain and has features that other units twice as expensive don't have. I've had no problems with it and the thoughful touches like lighted mute buttons make it easy to use. Highly recommended. I run multiple guitar preamps in parallel and this is perfect to send the mixed stereo signals out to the bank of effects in my studio rack.
                8 stereo channels in, pannable, and with the ability to send to monitor mix make this a very useful item for any small studio or guitar rig that has multiple preamps.
                I have no complaints about Behringer products. I had a problem with a different piece of gear and they sent me a new one no problem. This mixer unit is great for what I need it to do.
                It's Behringer, so you can't beat the price. Thinking about buying another one to mix the rest of my preamps together, then feed that into the one I already have set up.
