Excellent Time Owned: more than 12 months.
I have been using mine for seven or more years. No problems at all. It does wonderful things for my transmit audio quality. The memory is great for quickly switching settings for different microphones or modes. Something my otherwise excellent W2IHY doesn't have. Also, if you need to setup a PA system (ie..a hamfest), the feedback killer is a useful tool.

Great unit Time Owned: 0 to 3 months.
Got mine used but in excellent condition.Easy to program and sounds great when you get some on the air help in adjusting your parameters(don`t trust your radios monitor if you have one).Only using 8 of the 12 filters(you have 12 available per channel).

Another Big Bang fer the Bux from Behringer! Time Owned: more than 12 months.
At first the Behringer DSP-1100 Pro will appear just a bit intimidating. The manual may be written in different languages but looked very Greek to me! A couple years ago, the Big Dogs of Amateur Audio stumbled upon this 'Feedback Destroyer' and experienced an epiphany when they realized it was also a great 2-channel, 12-band EQ Per Band with TEN Memories per channel! Because it is 'Menu Driven', it is not the touchy-feely kinda unit most hams are accustomed to using. It Is Digital not Analog.

Now having said that... It sports a Built-In Power Supply, Rack Mount, XLR And TRS, Level Selection, Midi Control... and this is Only the Back of the unit!

The Front of the DSP-1100 Pro has more buttons and lights than Carter has pills. The Good news is that once you gitz it all set-up, you 'forget' it... and you can 'forget' it TWENTY times because Each of the Two channels has TEN non-volatile memories that you can tune and tweek and memorize and quickly switch amongst to your hearts content.

Since it Is a 'feedback destroyer' it is designed with only 16db of Boost but 48db of Cut... but anybody who needs More cut/boost on any of it's twelve bands per channel, Can program multi-bands for the exact same ranges.

Like all Behringer stuff, the '1100P' as it's called, Looks Great, Works Great. You really set it and forget it, so all you ever really do in punch the Huge On/Off Hard-Bypass switch or spin the large knob for your memorized settings!

It Is a Line Level device, though, so you should be Sure you have Balanced Line Level going IN and Line Level OUT to your next device. This is NOT a one box solution. It is Not a stand-alone piece of studio audio equipment. This is Not for the novice without help. It Does git the job done and IS lotza fun too!

I know of no other such device that Looks this good, Works this good, and Costs so little on the market... and Now it has been Replaced with the new DSP-1124 Pro which Looks Identical but has even better DSP on the Inside!

I use one on my Main Operating Console with the Kenwood TS-870 and another one on my Auxiliary Operating Console to jazz up my Kenwood TS-2000.

Features, Looks, Results, Reliability, & Price earns it the wv4r '5'. 73 es God bless, murf/wv4r.

Bit of a learning curve ... but very good audio Time Owned: 3 to 6 months.
To start off with, I'm much more comfortable with a graphic style equaliser, rather than the parametric kind. Of course, parametric is far more flexible. That aside, I really had to read and then re-read the instructions, and do a lot of monitoring and transmitting into a dummy load before the signal sounded good.

Finally, I got some basic settings from the NU9N and other sites, as well as some other audio geekoids. Once you have the "feel" for it, programming the EQ settings gets easier, and you can have a DX setting, or a rag chew, or whatever you like. You can even leave some memories clear to digitally remove tuner-uppers and nasty heterodynes from the incoming signal.

Bottom line: It's a winner with a steep learing curve. The DSP1100 or 1124 coupled with a VX2000 is a really complete combination for most folks. Combine it with a decent microphone and you can have really nice audio for about $500CDN if you're into audio.

-QC of the Behringer equipment seems fine.
-Use shielded audio cables.

Cheers,

The ***BEST*** parametric equalizer! Time Owned: 3 to 6 months.
This parametric equalizer is the best i have ever used. I am using 3 pieces of Behringer equipment and they give me the best quality ever! This is top line audio gear for Hi-Fi audio concerning ham radio.
