Behringer components are getting better every year. The Music Group also
own Midas which is top of the line gear and preferred by several people I
know. Behringer products get a bad rap round here but our tests have shown
they have near perfect quality components across the range of hardware
they produce. At the price point they are the best value audio products on
the planet. Plus they ship Audacity with their included merchandise which
makes it the most distributed audio editor on the planet.
