    A portable battery powered 5-channel mixer with 3-band EQ, FX, and monitors sends.

    The compact Behringer XENYX 1002B 5-Channel Mixer has Behringer's highly musical 3-band British-style EQ, plus an FX and monitor send for each channel, making it a must-have for any audio toolkit.

    State-of-the-Art Goes Portable
    Whether you plug it into the wall or power it via 9V batteries, the Behringer XENYX 1002B comes equipped with many of the features you've come to expect from Behringer's larger mixers. For example, XENYX mic preamps for amazing sound quality, phantom power for use with professional-grade condenser mics, 2-Track inputs and outputs, and 60mm faders. The 4 stereo channels accept left/right or mono 1/4" TRS/TR inputs, and 3 of them also accommodate microphones (with separate Trim controls).

    The Behringer XENYX 1002B represents a significant milestone in the development of mixer technology. Equipped with Behringer's premium XENYX mic preamps, this compact mixer can easily hold its own against the most expensive stand-alone mic preamps, both in terms of sound quality and available headroom. XENYX preamps offer a staggering 130 dB of dynamic range, with a bandwidth that extends from below 10 Hz to well above 200 kHz. XENYX mic pres provide such transparent, crystal-clear performance you just might think someone upgraded your mics.

    Sublimely musical British EQ
    The British consoles of the 1960s and '70s changed the sound of rock and roll—without them the British Invasion might not have happened. Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world. The 3-band EQ on the Behringer XENYX 1002B mixer is based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to imbue signals with incredible warmth and detailed musical character. Even when applied generously, these equalizers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.

    Applications and value
    Don't let the small footprint fool you—the Behringer XENYX 1002B is built to the same exacting standards as Behringer's larger format XENYX mixers and is housed in an equally rugged steel chassis. It is the ideal choice for keyboardists who need to mix down multiple instruments or sound modules for live or recording applications. Singers who perform with backing tracks, as well as instrumentalist/singers (acoustic guitar or piano bar, for example) find the Behringer XENYX 1002B indispensable for patching into house systems.

    Field Operation
    Its compact size and flexible input scheme also make it the natural choice of sports announcers for calling play-by-play game action. Likewise, radio and TV reporters especially like the Behringer XENYX 1002B mixer for its ease-of-use, remarkable fidelity and rugged reliability. And the 9 V battery option allows newscasters and correspondents to use the 1002B in remote locations where power is hard to come by. (Two 9 V alkaline batteries are required for normal operation, three for phantom power).

    From its state-of-the-art XENYX mic preamps to its highly musical British-style EQ and user-friendly layout, the Behringer XENYX 1002B mixer is a solid leader for value and sonic integrity in its class.

        I mixed my drums with the sound I wanted to get out of them ,then exported them to 1 channel on the PA. Not using these extra channels freed up more inputs.Not to mention,now one channel controls the output of what I give it. A very nice unit-easy to operate and set up.

          Def liking this mixer, I wish they were all kinda like this in terms of layout. No built in fx!!who uses these anyway?
          I use it as my main mixer for recording a three piece grunge band. The only improvement would be slightly stiffer faders, and a mid sweep on the eq.

            I found this a very versatile and useful piece of equipment. I use it as a pre amp for my acoustic instruments, as a vocal mixer and vocal mic pre amp and as a small portable mixing board for duets and trios. I also us it to turn my small 4 channel PA into a 8 channel when necessary. Its powerful for its size, light weight and portable. Fits easily in a small gear bag or my instrument bag. Use it with guitars, keyboards and my electric Idiopans. Love it!

              I bought this unit to augment my Fishman Solo sound system which only has two input channels. Using the Behringer with it gives me five more inputs. Perfect for my band when playing small venues. Love it !

              Comments about Behringer XENYX 1002B 5-Channel Compact Mixer:

              We call it "The Baby Mixer". We normally use a Mackie Design 16 channel mixer and 4 altec stacks for our big PA plus floor monitors. We needed a smaller and highly portable PA for a series of smaller gigs we are doing. At the core of that new smaller PA is the 1002B.

              Essentially, for these small venues, everybody goes through the board/mains/monitors and does not have to bring their amps. We plug in 2 mics, line outs from my MicroCube, electronic drums, and a bass "pod" plus a stereo line from an iPod. With creative cabling you could do more. We drive the smaller amps/mains/monitors no problem.

              Very adequate. Nobody has a complaint about the instrument sounds being whacked by the mixer. Having said that, you can record practice tracks, but I'd go digital if high end audio recording is your goal.

              I'll also say that the battery compartment requires a screw driver to access. But in honesty, we never use it anyway.

              For the money, this is a great product - emphasis on price point.

              Greatest use is for small events. Wouldn't want you to use it for recording since it's not the best sounding mixer. Also would like to see XLR outs so that I can run this with my powered Mackie Actives. I do a lot of smaller events that makes me have to be compact and small set up. This mixer deffinitely does the job! Best bang for the buck!

              One of the best purchases I have made

              By Wayne Mishler

              from Arkansas

              Comments about Behringer XENYX 1002B 5-Channel Compact Mixer:

              I bought the 1002B mainly because my 1202 was generating too much noise. Once I got the 1002B, and set it up in my home recording studio, I found it to be not only quieter but more convenient to use, with more controls over the sound. The mic preamps offer more gain with less noise and better control of the low, mid and high frequencies. The dedicated monitor circuits give me more flexibility and control over hearing what I'm sending to the recorder, and over playback from the recorder as I record new tracks.
              The Behringer Xenyx 1002B offers several improvements over my 1202. It is slightly larger than the 1202 but not cumbersome, and offers better control and monitoring of outgoing and incoming signals. It is much quieter. I use it as an interface with my computer recording software. It has everything I need, and more.
              Not only does it deliver a clean signal to my recording software, everything about it indicates it is built to last. It is sturdy. Knobs and sliders are durable. It feels and handles like professional equipment.
              I researched thoroughly before buying a replacement for my 1202. I found bigger units for a lot more money, but none that would do the job better than the 1002B. This is a lot of mixer for the money.
