    Even has RCA inputs. No noisy fan. Not sure about the looks - would be better matching other 'outboards' from the Behringer range?

    Used to drive a pair of close monitor speakers in home setup. Good sturdy construction and simple operation. Has a variety of I/O connection options to suit most requirements. Excellent power capabilities for this price point.

    Used as a principal amp in a music studio setup. Not connected to top quality gear but instantly noticed a increase in sound quality. Highly recommended for those on a budget.
