Behringer 502 Xenyx 5 Input Analogue Mixer
Behringer Product OverviewGot a solo gig at the local coffee shop? Need to make a quick public announcement? Simple sound calls for the simply superb XENYX 502, the BEHRINGER mixer with everything you need to give an intimate setting incredible sound. The ultra-compact XENYX 502 mixer’s 5 Inputs (1 mic, 2 stereo) allow you to effortlessly achieve premium-quality sound, thanks to the studio-grade, phantom-powered XENYX Mic Preamp and ultra-musical “British” channel EQ.
All XENYX mixers have one thing in common – great-sounding, high headroom XENYX mic preamps. These state-of-the-art mic pres represent a major step in the evolution of audio technology – and they can easily hold their own, even when compared to the most expensive stand-alone mic preamps. XENYX preamps off er a staggering 130 dB of dynamic range, with a bandwidth that extends from below 10 Hz to well above 200 kHz. Armed with these outstanding mic preamps, XENYX mixers provide such transparent, crystal-clear performance you just might think someone upgraded your mics while you weren’t looking.
The British consoles of the 1960s and ‘70s changed the sound of rock and roll – without them the British Invasion might not have happened. Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world. The channel EQ on our XENYX mixers is based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to imbue signals with incredible warmth and detailed musical character. Even when applied generously, these equalizers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.
The 5-input, 2-bus XENYX 502 with XENYX mic preamp can accommodate either a dynamic or condenser microphone. The 2-band British EQ is famous for its warm, musical sound. Play music between sets via the RCA CD/Tape Inputs (main mix or control room/phones assignable) and record your performance to an outboard recording device via the RCA outputs.
Weighing in at a mere 1.2 pounds (0.55 kg), the XENYX 502 is the portable, practical way to turn a speech or scaled-down performance into a sound to behold. Schools, meeting rooms, restaurants and songsmiths the world over agree this mighty mite is a high-fidelity lifesaver.

perfect but just didnt do the specific job i required
Behringer have had some flack from some musicians over the years but I've owned plenty of hardware made by them and, along with this small xenyx 502 mixer, they have worked flawlessly. Good build quality for what you pay for and a nice sounding pre amp built in. To dismiss some online myths ... it is phantom powered, but has no switch. Powered my condensor mic no problem. The only gripe I have with this little wonder is that there is no power switch. A little annoying but still not enough to deter purchasing it. If you 're after a small mixer for home use, them look no further than the Behringer Xenyx 502. It's hard to beat for its price.
