What do you say ...
« on: August 02, 2014, 04:02:22 pm »

What do you say when your friend goes out and buys a bunch of Behringer equipment and then asks you if it's good?

Well, it's better than Kustom...

Truth be told, I'd be as happy with Behringer speakers as I would be with JBL JRX/Eon or Mackie Thump.  And excepting build/sound quality, I tend to like the functionality and feature set on most of their electronics over much of the competition.  I'd be a bigger fan of the DCX2496 if only they weren't such a POS in build quality.  For the small format digital, my personal preference is the X32 but I wouldn't put it in typical Behringer build quality class.

I would listen to it in its intended use before passing judgement.

Always good advice.

We're talking about their lowest end equipment, worse than EONs but better than the Yamaha BR speakers and powered mixer she was using.  But it's just for an upstart band so it doesn't really matter.  It's just an awkward question for me.  But the talent is more important than the equipment.

I did notice that Behringer's website says they have "one of the lowest product failure rates in the industry".  That was a surprise.

I bought a B analog mixer and several rack items when I was just starting.  They got the job done and I upgraded one piece at a time.  No failures with any of it.  Have never used, or even heard their speakers tho.

You pat him on the back and tell him what a smart guy he is for investing in affordable equipment that will allow him a better profit from his gigs.
Most people don't her the difference anyway. ::)

This aint your old Behringer...

Things have gotten better from Behringer as of late, we all know the X32 is now widely accepted as downright decent console, and quite frankly some of their other stuff is not as bad as it used to be, I would say that it all depends on the gear that they have chosen.

I mean its certainly not the best stuff in the world but you get a pretty good bang for your buck. As long as your expectations are in the right place, they make a decent product.

You keep your mouth shut and wish him good luck. He bought what he could afford, his money, his life, his bed to lay in. If he wants to believe marketing hype about the number of burgers sold so be it. What he won't read is about the burgers sold that had one bite taken from them and were thrown in the shit can.

And by the way. The much maligned EON is a more than capable powered box when used as intended.

Lots of him and he in these replies considering Craig already said she.  Does anyone bother to read all the posts? ;)
