Pros: Tube preamp, parametric equalizer, low price.Cons: The tube is extremely difficult to change (it requires 50% disassembly of the unit).Comments: After searching for months, I discovered and purchased this preamp to be used with a home audio system. If you know your audio, tube equipment of any kind is priced in the stratosphere but this is one of the audio bargains of our time.As for changing the tube, the inexperienced will not be able to accomplish the task. Behringer should have anticipated that some tube rolling would be done and made it easier to do so (it's amazing they're able to assemble the unit like this to begin with). In the future (I'm talking to you behringer), please put the tube where it can easily be changed. The three LED's don't serve any useful purpose and nobody's going to sit there staring at the tube (yeah, I disconnected them).Note to tube rollers: Before changing the tube, build yourself a socket extender (about 7" should do)and remount the tube under the top case for easy future access. If you're handy fabricating metal, a hole in the top case with a mesh screen to let the heat out (it's not very much) would be an excellent upgrade.

I received 2 of these DOA with clear manufacturer defects resulting in a very large difference in gain and sound quality between the two channels. Channel 1 actually sounded exactly like it should, loud, crisp, and no hum, but channel 2 did just the opposite, there was a very noticeable high pitch hum, and the gain/level volume for the mic had to be turned up all the way just to hear anything at all. I tested both channels with various combinations of xlr cables and mics and the result was always the same. Even worse, the replacement was defective in both channels.I am sure if I had actually received an Ultragrain Pro that wasn't defective that I would have been happy with it, but unfortunately, after testing out 2 of these I had to give it up and just request a refund. Ended up just getting an Edirol M-16dx, which for some reason they don't sell here.

      Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

      I use this in my rack to bring my DI level to optimum to drive a power amp on stage and send the signal to the house as well. Wide range of gain control makes this unit perfect for this application. Extremely quiet with additional professional usable features. As for the tube, their is absolutely no reason to be attempting to change the tube. If it fails (highly unlikely as it's used in this unit) the unit has a three year warranty. If it fails after 3 years, you got your investmensts worth of use out of it. Discard it and replace it with the new model.

        Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

        30 years plus as musician, recording artist. The Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200 ranks with the best. I compared it with an Avalon VT-737SP Pure Class A Mono Vacuum Tube Channel Strip (two thousand +). I couldn't really notice a difference in sound quality except the Avalon cost twenty three thousand more. I use high end microphones to record acoustic guitars, drums, and percussion and the Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200 kept my recordings pristine and full of tone. Don't get TRUMPED by the scary high prices of the botique mic preamps out there.

          The preamp is well built and inexpensive. Whitout the output controll for the line inputs, it just wasn't suitable for my application. Which is recording my acoustic guitar passive pickups in stereo with a condenser microphone.

          Musicians friend offered a prompt refund. Their customer service is great.

            A++ functionality with outstanding price = value! Regularly play, record and master with Rode, Alesis, ART, Bose, Trace Elliot, EV, Cubase, Ozone, Beyerdyn, Grado, etc with Taylor guitars for Drift@7. Was afraid this would be a waste of time for live applications. Not so! While not audiophile quality, very good to excellent quality with well thought out functionality and balanced design. Well done!

            Comments about Behringer Ultragain Pro MIC2200:

            This preamp is amazing at its pricepoint. It has all standard features like phanton power, phase correction, and a separate output control, but the variable high pass filter was the deal maker for me. Having a hpf that can go all the way up to 320 makes the preamp useful for many more different sources, like wind instruments, drum overheads, and other percussion instruments. The parametric equalizer is also particularly useful when I need to tame the high-end of cheap SDC mics. I wouldn't really use it for anything but cutting high end though. As for the tone of this thing, I can't really say it's better or worse than some higher end pres I've heard. IMO, preamps don't do enough for the sound to justify spending hundreds or thousands on them unless you've already gotten the best sounding mics and acoustic treatment you can get. This preamp does what it's supposed to do just fine. It is a little bit noisy when I have to crank up the output a bit when using dynamics but I really can't complain for what I paid for it. This is too good of a value.
            Oh and the LEDs behind the tube really bug me. I'll take them out when I decide to change out the stock Bugera tube. Btw, I don't think the 30v or so going to the tube is really doing much for the sound either but oh well.

            The Tube Change is a horribly difficult task but you will want to go with a lower gain Tube such as the Black Sable 5751 or the 12AT7 by JAN Philips. After the tube change there isn't a high end Mic Tube PreAmp that will surpass this unit. EXCELLENT!
