OVERVIEW

(Open Box) 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
  • High-quality components and exceptionally rugged construction ensure long life

.
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.

Gain controls and Power Supplies Fail Constantly

The GOOD: well built steel case, rugged unit, good mic preamps, 4 sets of British EQs, doesn't take up much space in your gig bag or performance area.
The BAD:...Read complete review

The GOOD: well built steel case, rugged unit, good mic preamps, 4 sets of British EQs, doesn't take up much space in your gig bag or performance area.
The BAD: Behringer is infamous for power supplies burning out in 12 to 18 months time and for me always in the middle of a gig. Because of the ridiculous pin connection to the unit, no other manufacturer sells a power supply that is compatible. Do yourself a favor and just order a replacement now as they aren't too expensive. Next, the bottom gain controls are NOT supported by the case but merely the circuit board inside. Over time they will bend, get static, cut in and out and make that channel useless. I keep switching input channels until there are no good ones left.
Conclusion: I bother with these known shortcomings as the price point is excellent and the unit does a great job with vocals and background music for my small bar trivia events. After going through 2 or 3 power supplies, the unit has a lifespan of about 3 to 4 years with weekly use.

More than happy!

By What A Song Producions

Comments about Behringer XENYX 802 Mixer:

First of all, it's a low price mixer. I get a kick out of some reviews that slam this product. For the price, it has more features than some other higher priced units. I'm a believer in Beheringer products and I have a professional recording studio. I've heard some "high end" systems with the same problems that some complain about. Thank to Beheringer for giving us affordable products. If you want to spend more....do it. I have no complaints.

    Comments about Behringer XENYX 802 Mixer:

    I was in need of a small mixer with two phantom-powered XLR inputs. I bought this strictly for using four mics to capture my drums and send the stereo sum to my Tascam 8-track recorder. It works like a champ for this application. I will use this and a small power amp for my acoustic performances. The flexible output routing makes a very versatile little mixer. The only con is that there is no on/off switch, which I get around by plugging it into a switched power strip. A good deal all the way around.

    Horrible Audio Quality

    By Anthony Riddle

    from Texas

    Comments about Behringer XENYX 802 Mixer:

    This mixer is a complete waste of cash: There is a very loud fuzz that is cleary heard in recordings, and the preamps are absolutely horrid. The EQ works fine I suppose, but you just can't get past that static. I have tried many different cables and mics without a change in quality. A friend also has purchased one recently, and it had the exact same problem. The LED meter is unhelpful, part of the unit is made with cheap plastic (the mixer has been known to melt/catch fire), and it's wobbly.
    Just stay away from this.

    musician and sound reinforcment

    By Dan O

    from Sacto Ca

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Behringer XENYX 802 Mixer:

    The product would have been easier to transport if it had everything in one unit, because of
    the transformer I have accidentally left it on the power strip during tear down and luckily
    the other band members saw it and asked that anyone is missing a transformer.
    Since I've only owned this mixer for abour three years and probably used it a dozen times it should have broken so soon. VERY UNRELIABLE...
    unreliable features, needs to be redesign in the engineering department, so the unit can be
    reliable.
    right channel overheated and completely lost the right channel during a DJ job.

    channel two has alot of hiss sound and it has gotten worst and that was without an input.

    channel one is alot quieter, but still noisy.
    I don't recommend this product to anyone, unless they plan to throw money out the window.

    Comments about Behringer XENYX 802 Mixer:

    Quality made, reasonable price, great sound. This is one great mixer. I will look to Behringer again for my sound needs.
    Very good sound quality and solid built. Could use an on/off switch but if that's everyone's only complaint it's got to be good. I can easily dial in the sound I want and thru my powered speaker it sounds great.
    Easy to use, great sound. What more do you want from an 8 channel mixer.
    For this price, the quality and value are hard to beat. If you need a small (8 channel) non-powered mixer that is easy to use, quality made and reasonably priced then you need this mixer.

      Definitely a great little mixer. The only thing I would add would be a power (on/off) button. Everything else is great! I use it with my computer based recording setup and it fits nicely. Preamps sound great - no noise or anything. If it broke, I would definitely buy it again.

      XENYX 802: Excellent for the money

      Comments about Behringer XENYX 802 Mixer:

      If you need a cheap mixer for casual recording, this is for you. For me, it was between this and a similar Mackie board that cost twice as much. I'm quite glad I went with this, as it does absolutely everything I need, I got to spend the extra money on a new sound card, and I still have enough left over to go out to dinner. Excellent product for an excellent price.
      For a cheap mixer, you can't expect much. In this case, it doesn't even have a power switch (plugged = on). This is really a no frills setup, but if you're looking in this price range, you aren't looking for sub channels or built in effects. For a simple computer recording setup though, you can't do much better than this in terms of price/performance.
      I was surprised to find that the chassis is actually made of metal as opposed to plastic. The mixer itself is dead silent for recording (another welcome supprise) and makes for an excellent unobtrusive/portable setup. My only gripe is that the phantom power on mine takes FOREVER to turn off unless I just unplug the mixer, and even then the light stays on for about 15 seconds. Not sure if this is a design flaw or a defect in mine. Aside from this minor issue though, can't find any problem.
      I got this for a cheap and small recording setup to keep in my room. I must say, I am very impressed. The 3-band EQ works wonderfully, there is the possibility for an external effects loop, and I can hook up everything I need to do quick recordings with friends (bass, guitar, mic, and keyboard). It even has phantom power so you can plug in a nice condenser. For the price, you can't go wrong with this.

      Ask me a question

      Comments about Behringer XENYX 802 Mixer:

      I got mine because I was dragging around a bigger Peavey mixer and I was often only using a few channels. Got this and it's great. Very compact and I noticed an obvious sound improvement over my Peavey. It was clearer and quieter. For the money, I think it sounds great and is a very useful little mixer.

              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.

              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.

              Comments about Behringer XENYX 802 Mixer:

              I got this mixer for christmas, so that i could start recording some original songs for my band. and for the money, you will not find a better mixer. I am using a behringer xm8500 mic plugged into this, and the results are quite nice. the eq's are really good, you can get any sound out of them. Although, turning up the bass doesn't just increase the lower end, it almost completely changes the tone, but its a very musical sound, and there isn't really a setting that will sound bad (except if you are clipping). Although there is a little bit of preamp noise when you crank the eq, or gain, its not overwhelming. and another thing i noticed, is that i can plug my mp3 player into this, with the rca inputs, and me and my drummer can listen to a song, and jam along with it, and i can have my mic plugged in, so that i can talk to him while we are playing. there are a few design flaws though, the blue power light is crazy bright, i thought that was a bit exaggerated with some reviews, but its not. i have to put a few layers of tape over it. and secondly, the phantom power takes a while to turn off, so if you are using condenser mics, this may be a problem, but its not for me because im using a dynamic. but over all, this mixer is an increadable value.

              The 802 for Ham Radio audio

              Comments about Behringer XENYX 802 Mixer:

              The Xenyx 802 combined with the MXL-990 microphone is absolutely the bomb for high fidelity audio on Ham Radio. The 802 seems to be RF proof and all the controls work just as they should. I would recommend this combination to anyone wanting a great sounding station. You cannot beat the sound for the money spent!
