Premium 8-Input 2-Bus Mixer with XENYX Mic Preamps and British EQs

Got a solo gig at the local coffee shop? Need to make a quick public announcement? Simple sound calls for the simply superb XENYX 802, the BEHRINGER mixer with everything you need to give an intimate setting incredible sound. The ultra-compact XENYX 802 mixer’s 8 Inputs (2 mic, 2 stereo + Aux Returns) allow you to effortlessly achieve premium-quality sound, thanks to the 2 studio-grade, phantom-powered XENYX Mic Preamps and ultra-musical “British” channel EQ.

Sonically Superior Mic Preamps

All XENYX mixers have one thing in common – great-sounding, high headroom XENYX mic preamps. These state-of-the-art mic pres represent a major step in the evolution of audio technology – and they can easily hold their own, even when compared to the most expensive stand-alone mic preamps. XENYX preamps offer a staggering 130 dB of dynamic range, with a bandwidth that extends from below 10 Hz to well above 200 kHz. Armed with these outstanding mic preamps, XENYX mixers provide such transparent, crystal-clear performance you just might think someone upgraded your mics while you weren’t looking.

Sublimely Musical British EQ

The British consoles of the 1960s and ‘70s changed the sound of rock and roll – without them the British Invasion might not have happened. Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world. The channel EQ on our XENYX mixers is based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to imbue signals with incredible warmth and detailed musical character. Even when applied generously, these equalizers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.

There are products that are designed to wow us with their seemingly infinite scope of features and permutations; at the opposite extreme there are products that sacrifice functionality in order to be aesthetically pleasing. The Behringer Xenyx 802 falls into neither of these categories. It's not fancy, but it has a specific use and it just does it well.

There are several different routing options, including separate outputs for headphone monitoring, control room output, and line out. In addition, this little mixer provides phantom power to up to two microphones. The sound quality is very transparent, and you have to really jack up the gain to hear any background noise. Overall, this device creates the clean, even frequency response of solid state electronics but without the cold, brittle digitalian cast that plagues direct digital recording. I use this for recording on my computer via my Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Sound Card ( 70SB073A00000 ); I have a somewhat rare cable which converts stereo 1/4" to stereo RCA, from which point I use a Y-cable to convert to a miniplug (yes, I can hear you audiophiles groaning). Using this setup, with some simple level adjustment on the 802, I can record both my keyboard and my voice (via the AKG Perception 200 Condenser Microphone) with high fidelity. I use this setup for producing demo recordings, but other possible uses include podcasting and pulling mixer duty for a live performance in a small venue.

The on board controls are nothing special, really.

The Behringer Xenyx 802 is a very nice control board for the price. It came promptly, and included a very nice manual in several languages. I had enough background knowledge to use this product out of the box, but for somebody who didn't, the manual could very easily explain it to them quickly and have them mixing in no time. The only real thing I noticed quickly is that the light signifying that it is on is obnoxiously bright, to the point where it is distracting. This was an easy fix, I taped a little piece of lighting gel over it and got it to a point where I liked it. I played with the mixing functions a little bit using several techniques and my results are recorded below:

The first test of this unit was simply trying it out with a few different medium quality speakers and seeing how it sounded. I attached an Mp3 player for input and hooked up several bases for output. Most of the controls worked flawlessly, the board didn't seem to be broken in any way. Distortion was pretty high, I messed with the gain a bit, and played with the various volumes and EQs until I got it how I liked. This would have been a bigger problem if I had been somebody whom had never operated a mixer before, it would've taken a lot longer to fix this using only the manual. The EQs worked nicely, the middle functioned particularly well, bass caused some distortion but nothing annoying; however, treble wasn't excellent, it made the high frequency audio sound a tad metallic and cut off some at the top.

My second test was also with an Mp3 player as input, but this time I used several different types of headphones as output. Distortion was higher this time, and with some songs I could not completely eliminate it.

Pros: The mixer is solidly built with knobs and buttons that work the way you'd expect them too. The pre-amps are a bit noisy at high gain levels, and the 3 band EQ is exactly what you'd expect, but no more. The console itself is a good buy. The AC Adapter, however...

Cons: Recapping what others have said, the AC Adapter is not a standard adapter. This might not seem like a big deal, except that if it breaks, like mine did, you can't swap the adapter from another product, or buy a universal one. I have had this mixer less than two months, used it for one show and for a few practice sessions , after which it has been carefully packed away in a plastic box with a bunch of other equipment. My adapter came COMPLETELY apart (see the photo). I contacted Behringer about the issue, and have never heard back from them.

So...this is a decent mixer for the price. The Xynyx preamp is okay if you don't turn it up too loud, and the construction of the console is great, however the shoddy and difficult to replace AC Adapter, and slow if non-existent customer service will cause me to look elsewhere to find a replacement. You should skip the step of buying this unit in the first place.

I bought this board for my husband who had recently finished building a recording studio in our house. He has used it for voice-overs and to record his band and has been overwhelmingly satisfied with both its quality and efficiency. I recommend it for anyone looking for an affordable mixer to use at home.
