Loved this mixer when I first bought it. Mind you, I am very OCD when taking care of my musical equipment. About a year and a half after I bought it, it started making zapping noises intermittently. I could no longer trust the unit. The sliders also get noisy over time which is fixable with electronic cleaner. On the plus side, the on board effects are rich and are studio quality. I keep it now for home use and just bought an Alesis Multimix8USB. Much easier unit to use. The on board effects are not as good however as the Behringer. FYI, my local Sam Ash rep told me that this Behringer unit was giving them fits as most of them were being returned for something or other not working. Stay away from it. If you can go up a few dollars, get the Mackie or Yamaha. I bought the Alesis because I was on a budget.
