    After a week or so using it, I'm happy as hell with this little guy:

    MIXERS / POWERED MIXERS - UB SERIES MIXERS - EURORACK UB802 : Ultra Low-Noise Design 8-Input 2-Bus Mixer with Premium Mic Preamplifiers

    Vocals through it dry sound great, plenty of options, a dedicated headphone out and phantom power in 2 mic preamps. It's like an Audiobuddy on steroids, and it's about the same price ($50ish). 3 band EQ on all 8 channels, and a dedicated effects send.

    I recently bought the next model up from that one, the one with the XLR outputs. I'm using it to run my MP3 player with my backing tracks into the soundboard at clubs I play at. Behringer makes great little units at a fraction of the cost of Mackie.

    I'm getting one someday but I'm kinda like Sephiroth, I think I'll eventually need more inputs than that so I think I'll get one of the bigger ones. That one would work great for my solo project but I may want to record one my bands someday too. Even the 12-16 input ones are still a great buy!

    I bought one of those a couple years ago. I had no complaints with it, but I haven't found a reason to use it since getting my M-Box. Cool little piece of equipment.

    I have a bunch of Behringer boards.

    1. Behringer BCA 2000- USB 2.0 24 bit/96khz mixer with tons of analog/digital ins/outs. I use this into my 2 Ghz Centrino notebook for recording and home use.

    2. Behringer UB1832FX Pro- I use this as the main mixer for my band's studio. Like Chris said, great pre's, crisp vocals. Plus, it has onboard effects, lots of routing options, and tons of EQ features.

    3. Behringer UB1202- I use this as a drum sub-mixer to run a stereo drum mix into the main mixer.

    Speaking of Behringer studio gear, I've got a B-2 Pro dual-diaphragm condensor and it's awesome. Sounds damn close to the Rode NT-1 and Audio-Technica AT-4035 and AT-4040 I've used at the studio. I haven't done a side-by-side comparison yet, but I have no complaints with it so far.

    I've got a Behringer BG412H angled 4x12 cabinet that I use with my Flextone II HD which I love, but haven't tried the Behringer amps yet. Though I've heard some great reviews.

    My band uses all Behringer guitar & bass cabs and they rule all!

    For guitars - BG412F Straight 4x12 cab
    For bass - 8x10 Bugera-loaded bass cab

    I've used a lot of Behringer gear and some is great and some not so great. I've still got my B-2 condenser (which definitely rocks) and a mulitchannel compressor I use pre IEM feed on my PA rig. Those pieces have been really cool to have. I also had a pair of their studio monitors that spend more time on my tech's work bench than in my studio.

    The only complaint I've seen widespread about Behringer is how fragile some stuff can be. If the cheap parts in them hold up you're in great shape, but if not, they make great doorstops.
