I know a couple of people with them and they do not hum. More likely the user didn't integrate it into system properly.
A big possibility.
I don't have *any* of Behringer's crossovers, but I do have a number of their distribution amps and analog parametric crossovers.
I have a friend who has a bunch of DCX 2496s in a 7;1 system. He also has marketed a piece of test equipment that incorporated a X in it. H sold a good number of these syste. Another friend uses his DCXs as part of a 3 channel 4-way system.
The general take on Behringer around ehre is that their equipment is just fine except for an occasional sample defect. That is reality for every vendor.
They may have had a period of speed bumps when they did their ROHS transition which was several years ago.
Equipment like this is generally designed as a family, and use the same power suplies and interface circuits.
One of the Berhinger analog parametric eqs I obtained used and has a bit of a noise problem in one channel until it is used for a few minutes, and then it is fine until it sits idle on the shelf for a few months.
All the other Behringer equipment I have has always been just fine. I did have a Behringer digital eq about 15 years ago that I bought used and died after I used it for about a decade. Se la vie!
I'd say that the noise problem I found in one of my Behrigner parametric eqa is a single-sample defect and I should really repair it. The other 5 channels (3 devices) I have work fine.
The favorable operational characteristics of the rest of the gear is what I would expect from their products when bought new today.
