    JUST what the doctor ordered (special use case)

    Like others, I have purchased Behringer in the past and it was garbage. The company has revitalized itself in the last 5 years and I now own both a X32 Rack + Monitor2USB unit.

    I say "special use case" as I mainly use this as a master attenuator with interest in in LIVE playback only. This unit allows me to run my X32 at optimal level (near zero db) while controlling the overall sound in my bedroom music studio. I use this leveraging all 16 channels with a Motif-XF, Jupiter-80, Integra 7, sequencing, etc...

    I can attenuate my overall room sound as well as lets my optimize my live sound setup to giving me a faithful sound whether the sound pressure is of a whisper, or stadium level sound.

    Bottom Line: If you need a master attenuator with little to no color.....this is an amazing product.

    Great Product!

    The Monitor2usb arrive I fast and work great. It is a beautiful and cost effectively way to change monitors when mixing. Thanks to Sweetwater and to Ikes Taylor for the great service and attention.

    Behringer MONITOR2USB is perfect

    This is an excellent product. Perfect simplicity with straight forward features. I like the locking XLR connections on the back. The USB source works great with my MAC with no drivers to worry about. The DIM audio button is great for a quick volume reduction. The dual headphone amps are great with independent volume controls. The cross feed feature seems to be best used in its lower level settings to give you a nice subtle cross feed. The big volume knob is up front and ready to use. Works great with my active KRK Rokit monitor and sub system.

    Fantastic Piece of Gear!!

    Super Clean and Noise Free Signal! I was a bit nervous about running my UAD Apollo twin thru the inputs for fear of the Monitor2USB adding coloration to the sound, but this unit is AMAZING and does what it's supposed to do at a fraction of the cost of some other models. The monitor/headphone outputs sound Great!. Nice job Behringer!

    Bought the Monitor2USB because I needed a 3 set speaker switching controller.
    Never been a Behringer fan but I recently bought a single Beritone "Auratone" cube clone and was impressed.The reviews on the Monitor2USB were good and price was right so I took a chance.

    I haven't used the analog inputs yet but the USB input sounds surprisingly good.
    I wish there was some specs about the D to A in the manual. That and the headphone amp keep me from giving it 5 stars.The headphone amp isn't bad though.

    The unit has a passive sound to me. I am guessing it isn't with the VCA vol. But sounds really good for the money.
    I would not hesitate to recommend it to most audio people.

    Great surprise

    I have never been a fan of Behringer products. I have to say that is no longer the case . When I get described my needs for a monitor station to my Sweetwater representative he suggested the Monitor2USB. I told him my concerns with the Behringer products and he assured me this was an excellent product. He was right, it does everything it says it does with absolutely no issues I was shocked what a great product for a great price this barons your product is very, very good. It was exactly what I needed the USB in his outstanding for reference material and I used one of the headphone outs into my existing headphone amp And now have 5 headphone outs, 2 monitor outs and the USB in for refefence material. Thanks for the recommendation Mike!

    Important constructive criticism

    I love this product but I have an important criticism that I hope Behringer will fix and that could be significant for some users.
    I have my DAW interface connected to Input 1 via XLR and my laptop connected to Input 2 via USB. I love this because it allows me to listen to my reference tracks on CD through my monitors without having to fire up my whole interface setup. It just sounds fantastic through my monitors and through my headphones with a little "crossfeed" engaged.
    Here's the problem. In addition to my main monitors, I have a single powered Behritone speaker that I use for mono monitoring at times when mixing. (The other reason I needed this.) I initially connected this to the Monitor 3 output which is mono. I am disappointed to say that there is cross talk, leak, bleed, whatever you want to call it of signal through this 3rd output channel when it is not selected. This is a bummer! This does not happen at all with Monitor outputs 1 or 2. I actually sent my first Monitor2USB back to Sweetwater to try out a replacement but it does the same thing. Despite this, there's nothing out there that compares to the Monitor2USB at this price point, so I'm keeping it. I just run an XLR Y-cable from the Monitor 2 output to my Behritone, it works great with no sound bleed at all, and I'm happy enough.
    When I read about this device, I understood that all 3 monitor outputs were designed for full spectrum output. However, my guess is that the mono Monitor 3 output was initially designed for a sub only; the sound bleed I'm hearing is higher frequency and probably would be absent in a low pass situation with a sub.
    Again, I love this product; I wouldn't part with it. Hopefully, Behringer will fix this annoying little flaw.

    I coulda been a contender.

    Just right for my needs

    This thing is just right! I just wanted a big volume knob and the ability to split my main outs to two systems (control room and live room). I will definitely make use of the extra phones outputs and the extra source input as well. Mono and Dim features are handy too. The crossfeed thing is interesting, but not sure if I'll use it. I do wish the numbers on the big volume knob would light up to indicate the knob's position, but then of course the price would have go up too so....
