Do any of you guys own any Behringer Amps, or heard/used one? I'm curious to know more about them, alot of people seem to be using them in HT or HiFi. They are certainly priced right and I've read on other websites that their amps compare very favourably to some of the bigger names out there, such as Crown and Alesis to name a couple. The only issue on their fan cooled amps might be to swap the fan out for a quieter one, but these amps are supposed to be well built and stable down to 2 ohms, aside from being extremely powerfull.

You would think one "pro amp" manufacturer would make a quiet model to fill a need in the market. Not because a few HT enthusiasts are making use of their products, but because some "pro" users have a need for quiet equipment in recording / mixing studios.

The audio work I do is pretty minimal, but I've been annoyed with the fans from my PC and pro decks that have built-in fans. Added to the fact that I already live on a busy street, I'd pay a few bucks extra for equipment designed to run quieter...

The Behringer A500 is a fanless amp, and a number of people are using them on their home systems, but there have been a few issues with audible harshness at certain freq's(3000khz?) on some units. Otherwise, as long as you get a good one, it would seem to be a decent amp for less than $200 US. Just not sure if I would want to go to the hassle of returning it for another unit as I would probably order from the States, might be a problem as well as $$ to exchange it(shipping).

The other Behringer units (EP1500/2500)seem to be trouble free from what I've read on other forums, and really at around $250 for the 1500 and about $300 for the 2500, they look to be somewhat of a bargain.

Thanks Jay, I saw that one. It's kind of a catch 22...I could order an amp through my aunt(in the US) for about 1/3 less (after you consider the exchange, taxes and the typical Canadian markup). But then if I have a problem with it.....

Looks like it is about $300cdn to get it out to you. So you say you can get one out of the States for about $200? I think I would spend the extra for the ease of doing business in Canada.

I don't know, hopefully not, but most likely you will.

How exactly would the government know you ordered something from Alberta?
