Ample I/O provides monitor options galore

Your mix isn't complete unless it sounds great in the studio, car, and on bass-challenged speakers and earphones. The Behringer Xenyx CONTROL2USB toggles between up to three sets of studio monitors, equipping your studio with monitor options galore. Utilize high-quality nearfields to get your mix started. Add or remove a subwoofer to check your low end. Then reference your mix with cube-style speakers. There's also a monitor mix input for your DAW. A pair of individually adjustable headphone outputs provides even more monitoring flexibility. The CONTROL2USB accommodates up to four stereo input sources, so setting up reference sources is a piece of cake.

VCA technology ensures precise level adjustments

Because it employs high-end Voltage Controlled Amplifier (VCA) technology instead of inexpensive resistive faders, the Behringer Xenyx CONTROL2USB is incredibly precise. The engineers at Sweetwater have found that you can set levels quickly and accurately with the CONTROL2USB's large control knob. Make minute adjustments with ease. The CONTROL2USB actually controls the voltage that drives the amplifier rather than simply controlling how much signal passes to it. The result is faithful sound reproduction that you can trust.

Convenient built-in USB audio interface

The Behringer Xenyx CONTROL2USB's built-in USB audio interface creates an excellent centerpiece for your studio without requiring additional hardware or drivers. Just plug into one of your computer's spare USB ports and get to work.

Have the CONTROL1USB - A++

Have a CONTROL1USB in my setup and love the unit! If the CONTROL2 is anything like the quality of the CONTROL1 you won't be disappointed! This has many great features, clean clear audio, multi interfacing to different sources, monitors, mute and dim options and even two independent headphone outs for extra listening portals in the control room. I even like the talk back mic built in. Very handy tool for any studio!
5/5

Great for the Studio

We purchased this several months ago and have used everyday since, in fact it rarely gets switched off. Easy setup, durable and very low noise. We currently use "A" and "B" monitor select, We also source some audio devices through this unit back into the X32 Rack mixer and to the SENDS in ProTools. Talkback function works great, it's nice not having to use a separate mic setup for talkback. Overall very impressed with the build quality and functions.
5/5

Perfect for my needs

This works great and I don't even use all the features. The sound is very transparent (I do mastering for a living) and no high pitch noise as reported by another reviewer, who in my opinion has received a defective unit.
5/5

Great tool

best for price very good product
4/5

This may cause my

My experience with the unit is nothing but positive. It replaced a Presonus Monitor Station that went south, and it sounds at least as good if not better. I have none of the self noise issues described elsewhere. It is Behringer, so it comes under the YMMV category, but purchasing from Sweetwater means purchasing with confidence.
