Excerpt: I bought this equalizer to correct an overly bright(high treble) vintage stereo system. I went through several vintage graphic equalizers that quit working so I purchased this one new. I have another Behringer product that I was impressed with so I made the plunge. For the money it can't be beat.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Versatile
Excerpt: I use this in my project studio as my interface only has EQ's within the computer. This EQ lets me have balanced sound through my studio monitors. It is very easy to use and is very effective in getting just the sound you want without feedback or distortion or speaker rattling.
Excerpt: Because of a small listening room, I had used a larger Beheringer equalizer to even out the resonances overall, using CDs as the source. My turntable uses a MC cartridge that, despite a high gain MC phono preamp, still didn't reach the level or bass impact as its equivalent CD did.
Pros: 6-12 Db Switch, Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Versatile
Excerpt: The unit works very well, I can hear no extra noise or distortion or "veil" added to the sound. It is not so much for evening out every little bump on the frequency response, more a kind of advanced tone-control unit, as I see it.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion
Excerpt: I bought this unit to complement the Behringer AMP800 that I ordered (also from B&H) not long ago. All of the Mini Series components are designed to stack on top of each other, so these two look great together.
Excerpt: We broadcast some church services over the internet. We were having problems with the sound being overmodulated, especially with people that have voices. The FBQ800 cleaned up all the sounds without any extra work, and for those very deep voices, a few tweeks and they sounded great.
Summary: I wanted to write this review to inform those of you who might have bought this unit and thought it quit on them after year. For a while, the LEDs on the unit had not been coming on as bright, especially the ones on the equalizer bands.
