    I've bought some Presonus stuff that was crap too. Never had any trouble with M-Audio.

    This is a straw man argument. Why’d you have to replace all these components??? Oh yeah... heat.

    Behringer is the modern equivalent of Arbiter. They simply copy things almost exactly, but they use the cheapest parts and labor possible, and sell it at a much lower cost, because they can crank out 50 THOUSAND mixers per MONTH. That says a lot about the quality.

    Really? I don't think so. Everything breaks. No it doesn't.

    Enjoy the pond.

    But unlike the Behringer junk those components in the amps could be replaced. Is your Behringer 60 years old? Behringer is disposable gear, not designed to last.

    A sound man once joked to me that Behringer's slogan should be 'They work'. His tone was sarcastic, btw.

    Yes it does. Especially everything with electrical current running through it. Go visit your local amp repair shop... wall to wall Marshall, Fender, Peavey, etc...new, old American, Chinese, Korean, British...ALL BREAKS.

    With Behringer, you get the George Carlin warrantee:
    If it breaks in half...you get to keep both halves

    Behringer gear is like a Submarine, built by the cheapest contractor and designed to sinko_O

    One of my friends has had fewer problems and better service from Kia than another on has had from MB. Warranty’s longer too .

    7 year warranty on a Kia, how can you beat that lol? I read a story a while back about a BMW executive being given a tour of the Kia factory. Apparently he was gobsmacked how advanced their procedures are. I wasn't there so cant confirm this but I'd well believe it:D

    I drive a 2017 kia sportage for work.
    It's a company car, I didn't buy it.

    It's on it's 2nd engine.
    It has also had the wiring harness replaced.
    I completely stand by my own statement.

    our bass player used to use a Behringer amp head for his bass.... it literally caught on fire in the middle of a show.. the smell was awful, the crowd thought we were using a fog machine.. it was just the smoke coming from the amp head... we replaced it with an Ampeg head... so much better

    Update: so this pedal (DR600 reverb) is not actually broken. My dumb ass plugged the wrong power adapter into it. It works just fine.

    Milliamperes make a huge difference.

    Take a look at the MOTU M2 and M4 interfaces, too.
