    I just needed a way to hook up my subwoofer and speakers through one output, and this did just what I needed. For this price, you get a great product. The build quality is good, I don't see it breaking easily, and it's really portable too. Perfect for if you need a live mix of your audio for video productions, or if you are a DJ that doesn't need many fancy controls.

    Check the power plug into the mixer, it has a tendancy to be loose and can fall out during recording.
    The instructions are written for someone who is an expert at setting mixers, for a novice who does not have this background, have fun trying to figure out what nobs do what.

    Comments about Behringer XENYX 502 5-Channel Compact Audio Mixer:

    I'm using this product with 2 speakers for a low end PA system. It's great to plug them in and an Ipod. Works well. Only complaint is the power connector is not well designed.

              I know nothing about mixers. I got this so I could add a microphone to a home speaker system so I could have a "karaoke" effect in a large basement room with lots of wall and ceiling speakers. I sued this in conjunction with a receiver from a home theater surround sound system (YHT-395 5.1 Channel Home Theater in a Box System) and a cheap wireless mic system (DKW-Duo Dual Handheld Wireless Microphone System). Add a universal iPod dock and you've got music with singalong. Works great.

                I'm the buyer for a sound & video installer and needed a quick alternative when we ran out of Phonic 55 on a project. A respected retailer suggested the XENYX 502 and it fit the bill perfectly!! Identical features, lower price, and a more attractive design.

                    All features work well. Knobs have nice feel. Downsides are no power switch and a loud output transient when powered down. I solved both problems by never powering it off. Mixer and power supply stay cool even if left always on.

                        The XENYX 502 5-Channel Compact Audio Mixer is great. I use it with my Bass Guitar and effects pedals to manage the volume of a stereo effects setup. The mixer does not change the sound of the signal coming in if you leave the EQ settings flat. The mixer is simple and very easy to use. I did not need to look at the manual at all.

                        For the price you cannot get a better deal on a simple mixer suitable for home use. I only wish it had a power switch.

                        I sent this product to my buddy to record his end of our podcast. Works really well and for a beginner looking to podcast it would be a good mixer if you are only doing the podcast by yourself. Has only one XLR output which would limit having in studio guests unless you used 1/4 jacks

                                I bout this for my son who is a DJ ad it works just fine. I did some audio recording to my camera using this mixer, just as a test, and I was really impressed with how quite this little baby is. Lots of headroom to work with. If you are thinking about buying this mixer place your order now!

                                  We are using this mixer as a monitor mix for our church drummer. The single XLR input is from main console and this allows the drummer to set his own level (from soft to deafening) without affecting the sound in the house because of a blaring monitor. It is compact, comes with a power supply and is very easy to setup. I wish it allowed for battery power so that it was more portable.

                                    Have used it's predecessor in a video/audio capture environment for video production (EuroRack). The device filters, phantoms, and fits most anywhere. Alot of device in a little package. Highly recommened!

                                    Recently downgraded to this from a Mackie 802-VLZ3 and with only a few options lost, this is a great mixer. Sound quality is equal. Would be nice if it had mute and a mid channel but overall, much better value for the money. Why pay more for the same sound?

                                    Decent preamp and clean sound throughout. Excellent build quality and quite a sturdy little unit. For the money, the Xenyx 502 is a terrific value. I use it to regulate audio levels into a DV capture card and for the occasional voiceover. The multipin power connector is a weak spot: it's fussy and tends to open.

                                        I am using this to mix two wireless microphones with music from my XBOX. I ripped karaoke CD-Gs to an AVI format, play them via an XBOX connected through the XENYX 502 and my home theatre and WOW- Karaoke magic.

                                        This works great, easy to setup, sound is great. Nice simple solution.

                                          I just needed a way to hook up my subwoofer and speakers through one output, and this did just what I needed. For this price, you get a great product. The build quality is good, I don't see it breaking easily, and it's really portable too. Perfect for if you need a live mix of your audio for video productions, or if you are a DJ that doesn't need many fancy controls.
