Meow Tomcat a Audio Enthusiast, Audio Review

Summary: I had the Behringer A-500 on loan to try out on my 2 channel stereo system. I've been an enthusiast for over 30 years and have listened to everything from the Dynaco tube equipment to current Linn and Bryston equipment. 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: Bought 2 of these amps. Good for the money, but made too cheap for critical listening use. Compared to the Crowns & Brystons that we already had in the studio, the Behringers weren't as refined or polished sounding. The treble was harsh with certain recordings. We used the Behringer at the studio to powered a pair of JBL LSR speakers and also a pair of B&W speakers, don't know which model. We also hooked the behringers to a pair of JBL MRX for an outdoor setup.
