    A great enhancement for your computer recording interface!

    The Behringer XENYX 802 Mixing Console has 8 inputs and an FX send control for each channel. Assignable CD/tape inputs have been incorporated for routing flexibility.
    Behringer's innovative and affordable XENYX mixers provide the home recordist and club musician with pristine sound quality and cutting-edge features for very little outlay. The XENYX Mic Preamp approaches the sound quality, transparency, headroom, and even the dynamic range of boutique-style, standalone mic preamps. Behringer's neo-classic "British EQ" brings back the warmth and musicality of those '60s and '70s mega-console desks that made music history.

    Features

    • Premium ultra low-noise, high headroom analog audio mixer
    • 2 state-of-the-art XENYX Mic Preamps comparable to standalone boutique preamps
    • Neo-classic "British" 3-band EQs for warm and musical sound
    • 1 post fader FX send per channel for external FX devices
    • 1 stereo aux return for FX applications or as separate stereo input
    • Main mix outputs plus separate control room, phones and stereo CD/tape outputs
    • CD/tape inputs assignable to main mix or control room/phones outputs

    Now you don't need a big budget for sound excellence. Order today!

      .
      This is an inexpensive mixer that does a good job. The controls all work well and the layout is easy to decipher and deal with on a continuing basis. The quality of the product is surprisingly good considering the selling price. The circuit board is a little on the thin side but is made of reasonably strong material and the parts are well soldered (by machine). The cabinet is steel and is again well laid out with the controls not too close together allowing easy access.

      There are a couple of points that should be considered before purchasing the unit. Do not subject the mixer to severe shocks or place pressure on the knobs as they are not supported by the chassis but rather the circuit board which could crack under undue pressure. Better designed mixers place a shoulder at the bottom of the knobs which contact the metal chassis and thus do not put excess pressure on the board. This however, will only come into play if excessive force is put on the knobs.

      The purchaser will notice the absense of an on-off switch which is a bother as the only way to
      shut off the machine is to unplug the unit. This should be accomplished by removing the plug from the wall (mains) not by unplugging the connecter at the back of the machine. The connector used is not made to be continuously handled in this manner. Because of the design of the circuitry, which in corporates a center tapped AC transformer, the usual DC wall rat plug is not used but rather a cheap three prong plug which is not suited to continuous use. Including an on off switch would eliminate this problem as would the use of a better plug assembly.

      Other than these two points this unit does a good job off providing good sound, equalization and flexability at a very affordable price.

      I bought the Behringer Xenyx 802 to use as the mixer for a podcast. I was looking for something inexpensive that would have decent quality - I wasn't expecting pro quality for the price, but something usuable. I was very dissapointed in the 802. I spent 4 days playing with it, trying to get the settings tweaked so that I could have a reasonable level of sound coming out with little or no hum and buzz. The only way I was able to achieve this was by turning the gain on the mic preamp down as far as possible, keeping the mic level set relatively low, and carefully tweaking the mix level - and I'd still get a constant hum in the background. I tried recording into a laptop and into a battery powered audio recorder and the hum was still there. I was eventually able to get a tolerable sound out of it, but at the expense of losing all the presence from the mic. Ultimately it ended up sounding little different from the built-in mic on my laptop! If you need a way bring in several inputs, and you have the time to tweak the settings constantly - and you have no real budget - this might be an acceptable solution. Otherwise look at something a little higher on the scale. Maybe I gt a bad example, but I really don't see how the Behringer gets the ratings it does.

      You can't get a better mixer in this price range. It is better than similar products in a higher price range. I own many Behringer products and have not regretted a single purchase, including this one. If you are looking for a quality product on a budget, you can't beat this one.

        Nice piece of gear. Works great for my small dinner gig. Had a little trouble with a misunderstanding with the phone rep and ended up with one that wouldn't fit my needs and musicians friend fixed the problem so fast , I had the wrong one back and the right on at my home within two days! Great job. Thanks folks!

            I produce a live webcast of local high school sports. This board fits the bill perfectly. I have owned behringer products in the past and have always been impressed with every purchase. Only thing I would suggest to behringer would be to include a built in compressor in all their audio boards. This could not be very expensive with digital effects being as affordable as they are now.

              Comments about Behringer XENYX 802 Mixer:

              I was looking for a very small mixer to monitor all of my key rig and a send from the monitor board. The main thing for me was size, but the price definitely played a factor in me buying this little dude. Ultimately, I really didn't enjoy it.

              There wasn't a ton of routing flexibility, and get this: the chassis design has a defect. None of these will sit flat on a table (I checked three of them).

              In the end, I returned it and bought the Mackie 802-VLZ3. Here's a tip, BUY THAT ONE! I couldn't be happier with that little Mackie. Dump the Behringer.

                  This is a good little mixer for small events. I use it to dj small weddings and dances, and it works good for plugging my computer into the system and plugging in a mic. I've had another of these mixers for a little over a year now, and I'm noticing one of the knobs is starting to short out. Overall, it is a pretty good unit though.
