|I use the 1202 for audio touch up's. The unit is pretty decent but certainly not top of the line by any means. There are plenty of other mixers out there that are a thousand times better but they are also a thousand times the cost. I will say for ham radio applications this unit is more than sufficient. If you want to spend more than go for the Yamaha unit no questions asked. I had the unit smoke a little and the had to switch to one of the other inputs. The unit still worked even after it smoked?|
I have had this unit for about two years now and it does it's job and is good to use in line with other gear as you can use this unit for basic touch ups and add effects into your audio line. You can add the slightest room effect which is basically reverb to your audio. This does not mean crank up the reverb and sound as if your on 11 meters it is simply to add the slightest reverb for that big room sound. Anyhow, for approx $100 - $150. you can beat it. If you want to spend closer to three hundred go for the Yamaha.
|Excellent mixer; high quality and very low price!

You will not believe it: such an excellent mixer for such a low price. I paid only 109 euro for the Behringer 1202FX and see what you get... I really cannot understand how it is possible to manufacture such a mixer for this price and with this quality!
I use two microphones: Heil HC-5, Heil PR-40 and one headset: Heil Proset-5 with the Behringer. It is hard to believe how many features this mixer offers. The XLR-input is very useful, so are all the level controls.
Audio reports are excellent with all three the microphones I use with the 1202FX in combination with my rigs (Icom IC-775DSP, Icom IC-7400, Yaesu FT-950 and Elecraft K3 ordered).
I am very very satisfied with this mixer!
Forget the rest, unless you want to pay much more than is necessary.
|Great first mixer

|Let me start by stating that im not a technician or sound engineer, so this is not a technical review.Instead this is one operators opinion of this product.|
I feel this mixer makes a great base for the audio enthusiast or first time mixer for audio experimenters.I feel the mixer is a great investment for the operator with a collection of mikes (makes changing connected mics a breeze),or the casual operator with an average mike and wishes to make improvements.It also makes a great starting point for interfacing mics to rear of radio or other pieces of rack equiptment.
The mixer featues xenyx mic preamps (awesome) on each mic input, 3 band eq's (High-Mid-Low) with low cut filter on each input and of course 100 real world effects to round the package off.Bad points (my views only) include flat viewing angle for a desk mixer and no on-off power switch.But these points are soon negated when you see the price.
So bang for buck ($199 Aust) this mixer is as good as it gets for radio purposes and will more than fulfill the average operators requirements.Being a desk mixer makes it ideal for quick mic changes and adjustments on the fly.Check Behringers prices and range and judge for yourself.
