Re: Re: Best high quality,super compact mixer?



I have to say it... I love my Behringer. Small, light-weight and durable. 
I do up to 250 shows a year with it.  Serious hours, serious abuse.  It
has held up great.  Does it sound as good as my 16 channel Mackie CFX? 
No, but a little tweaking with the EQ and it's all peachy.

Love it.
