My Behringer amp has performed flawlessly for me for years.
That seems to happen to a lot of people, myself included.
I know a number of people who are professional audio engineers of a high echelon, namely AES Fellows and other designers of systems that are sold by the 10,000s who have an amazing amount of Behringer equipment in their home and professional systems.
The most common sort of Behringer critic seems to be some guy who pulls a few small venue live sound qigs and deifies the prejudices of people that he admires who he reads on the internet..
I'm not saying that Behringer equipment is always perfect, but if you pick and choose equipment from among their rather extensive catalog, it can all work out. They have clearly put out some classic equipment such as the A500 and EP2500/4000 amps and the B2031 studio monitor. Their small analog consoles are good for people who are starting out but do take a licking and keep on ticking.
