  • Summary: I bought two of these after the dissapointing results(lack of bass, flimsy power button) I obtained with my Alesis RA500 I did not expected much but after connecting and let the system cooked for a while the results were as described in the Audiocritic review this little amp is pretty good and delivers a beautiful crystal clean sound there is a buzz in the rca connections but swapping to balance using a rca-trs connector the amp is noiseless.

  • Summary: I bought my Behringer A500 used at a local music store. My existing home subwoofer amp was acting up, so I needed something quick. Since the receiver handles the basic crossover functions, this amp is very simple to set up and use. I don't have to "work around" a complicated subwoofer amp crossover. This amplifier is doing what i need it to do and it sounds fine performing subwoofer duty. What more can I ask for?

  • Summary: I had the Behringer A-500 on loan to try out on my 2 channel stereo system.

I'm not an audiophile because I don't change equipment every year. What I have is an antique Quad 306 power amplifier and matching Quad 44 preamp (unmodified with Quad cd card).

  • Summary: Like the previous reviewer I also bought two of these amps but unlike him I am using them in a domestic situation, not in a studio. Unlike the guy from the studio I have never used my amps bridged as there is plenty of power for the average domestic listening room. I run the amps either passively bi-amped or with a two way electronic crossover and am currently running my system in balanced mode via XLR's with balanced interconnects but they will run single ended with...

"Typical Behringer"

12 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Some say this amp sounds clean, but what is described as "clean" are distortions in the higher frequencies. A studio reference amp should sound clean and neutral. The A500 does not.

"Great home amplifier"

By a customer from student.adelaide.edu.au, zzounds.com
19 August 2007
  • Excerpt: I own two which are bridged running my stereo speakers from a pre amp, a close friend has 5 all bridged running his home theater set through a yamaha reciever and it sounds great. So my better than the yamaha amp, much more dynamic. Honestly for $200 it's a good piece of gear. Although it can only really manage 120 watts RMS at 8 ohm for its price it is great value.

"You Get What You Pay For."

By a customer from yahoo.com, zzounds.com
10 July 2007
  • Excerpt: I think the sound is fine in terms of not coloring it, but it's not as loud as the power rating would have you believe.
