Dave this is your fault. Alright guys. in reference to ehh-- uhhh ... theres no way around it. BEHRINGER. Many on this site are very displeased with this company. I just need a reason or two why theyre so terrible. Theyre very wallet-friendly and I ask because Im in the process of getting a T1953 - mic tube pre. And im currently recording with a Behringer mixer. Is it bad components...? High signal/noise? I NEED ANSWERS! o and which IS a good mic pre? Just one or two within the 200-300 dollar range maybe? Slim.
