Just simple and amazing

We use it at school for live recordings in studio. Simple to use and of course cheap for the price. Especially if you start comparing prices with other brands.

Great System For The $$$

We installed this system at our church and it works great. It was easy to install and the features are everything we need. Yes, it would be nice to go wireless, but that is some big bucks compared to what this system costs.


This type of monitoring is not new, what is new is the price, Behringer has brought the capability of MUCH more expensive systems down to the working man, thank you ULI! We replaced a rather sophisticated analogue mixing system that gave us the similar capability, each person in the band had their own mix, it took a lot of wire and connections to get all those mixers connected. The first day we got the system I had to do a lot of running around and explaining and helping others learn to mix their own monitor, by the end of the first session everyone was smiling ear to ear because they could finally really hear and tweak the mix the way they want it. Now the monolith of monitor mixing stuff we've been using is leaving our studio because this little digital Behringer system does everything the former system did and more. We're using it with Carvin stereo in-ear monitors and there is plenty of volume. This rack mount interface is pretty simple and easy to set up. I put a Behringer patchbay in right above it so it's easy to jack sources into the headphone system. There seems to be plenty of headroom, every channel has signal present and clip indication, it's easy to keep an eye on the system. So far I've never heard it distort or do anything weird. Thanks Sweetwater, we love it!

Behringer is great!

This system is great. I've been using Aviom for the last 15 years, and the Behringer is giving it some great competition

The only thing

Still giving it a 5 star because you CAN NOT beat the price for the system! But I wish the p16-I had 2 outs per channel (it only has 1), I had to do come refiguring because my sound board does not have direct outs and I had to use the inserts from the board with Direct Out Cables to go into the p16-I, which is okay if you aren't using any processing gear or aren't using your inserts for anything. I had to get a 3/4 splitter from radio shack and go from the processing gear's output and one went to the p16-I and the other to the board. But like I said you can't beat the price!!
