Behringer is one of those audio equipment companies that have a long history in the business. Their line of products, which includes anything from mixers, to speakers, to karaoke machines is almost omnipresent at any local or online retailer. As far as a consumers’ opinion of them; that has also had a long history in itself. Behringer has always been the low cost alternative to many of the big name manufacturers such as Pioneer, and this has lent itself to be given a bad name at times.
In later times, we’ve seen the quality and production of Behringer gear get better. The consumers have spoken and Behringer has shifted its attitude as well. The DJX900USB has its place for those who aren’t willing to shell out for Pioneer’s DJM-850, and it performs as expected.

Winter NAMM 2012 held the introduction of the new CMD DJ controller line from Behringer and has been the topic of conversation for many on our channels as well as the blogs and social media feeds of others across the DJ Internet universe.

Behringer is well known for making rather, well let’s just call them affordable, mixers. Their build quality is usually pretty solid but people have generally had issues with their sustainability and general prolonged operation. I am no stranger to Behringer myself owning some of their mixing consoles, using their amplifiers on tour with my band, and even using their 4 channel mixer in our video production studio. Their stuff is usually pretty low on the cost front (cheap is not a good word because they actually make pretty solid gear) but like some other companies out there with similar legacies, Behringer is stepping up their game and putting out more professional gear while maintaining that level of affordability that makes them the go to company for the band, sound engineer, club, etc. on a budget.
Enter the Behringer X32 Digital Mixer. As its name implies it’s a 32 channel mixer …

The Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California is always a lot of fun for the UniqueSquared Team. We have captured content for the last 2 years, specifically to cover and report on the hottest and latest gear in the realm of remix, recording, live PA, and DJing. Not surprising, there were some huge announcements from a lot of the major manufacturers and some from those that are less well known. In addition to running around the show floor with cameras, our team got a chance to talk at length to some of the product specialists at their booths. After the same memorized overview and sales pitch that they recite thousands of times for the whole week, they got down to the dirt of what they were trying to hock. After careful consideration, the UniqueSquared team has put together their Top 10 Product Announcements from NAMM 2012.
