        Comments about Behringer MINIFBQ FBQ800 Graphic Equalizer:

        I use this in my project studio as my interface only has EQ's within the computer. This EQ lets me have balanced sound through my studio monitors. It is very easy to use and is very effective in getting just the sound you want without feedback or distortion or speaker rattling. I was hesitant at first becasue of the price and the simplicity, but this is exactly what I needed. Works just fine!

          Comments about Behringer MINIFBQ FBQ800 Graphic Equalizer:

          Because of a small listening room, I had used a larger Beheringer equalizer to even out the resonances overall, using CDs as the source. My turntable uses a MC cartridge that, despite a high gain MC phono preamp, still didn't reach the level or bass impact as its equivalent CD did.

          So I purchased this ridiculously inexpensive FBQ800 to feed the line input because it also equalized the volume to the same level as my orher sources. I was concerned about the plastic case but I have had zero hum issues so not an issue.

          Many would tell you that so much electronics between the cartridge and the amplifier (MC phono preamp with its own built in RIAA equalizer-FBQ800 cartridge equalizer-line preamplifier-main room equalizer-power amp) is an audiophile no-no but any loss of purity (I could hear none) is more than compensated by matching the TT to the speakers/room. It sounds better. Very satisfied with this product. Kudos to Berhinger. Thanks.

              The unit works very well, I can hear no extra noise or distortion or "veil" added to the sound. It is not so much for evening out every little bump on the frequency response, more a kind of advanced tone-control unit, as I see it.
              For exemple: Get rid of the too lean sound of the AKG K701 headphones while keeping their excellent soundstage etc? Put the overall range in 6dB mode, drag the 1k handle halfway down and the 2K handle slightly down, and -if you do not play very loud- increase the lowest bass a little bit. Voila! They now perform on a much higher level. You will hear a well balanced wall of sound, instead of the somewhat annoying, thin-sounding stuff of the uncorrected phones. Thanks.

                  Comments about Behringer MINIFBQ FBQ800 Graphic Equalizer:

                  I bought this unit to complement the Behringer AMP800 that I ordered (also from B&H) not long ago. All of the Mini Series components are designed to stack on top of each other, so these two look great together. Rather than trying to adjust the audio properties of each program on my computer individually, I figured it would be easier and better to find a good hardware solution that let's me fine-tune all the audio from my computer. Since I already had the AMP800 (and love it), this FBQ800 was the logical choice. It has both RCA and 1/4" inputs/outputs, so it's easy to connect to different devices. The input level knob has indents, so it's easy to set the same input volume each time. The unit has a low cut button that attenuates frequencies below 75hz. Behringer says this is good to remove floor rumble and such, but I find it useful to cut down the bass so that the neighbors don't complain at night. :) The sliders all feel smooth, and there's no static or jumpiness in the sound when they're adjusted. Each slider has an individual red LED indicator that doubles as the FBQ visualizer. The feedback detection system (FBQ) is a really neat feature. Behringer says that it's to indicate which frequencies are overly amplified (getting feedback), but that's probably only useful in certain settings (like a live performance). What it does, effectively, is turn the red LEDs in each of the sliders into a sort of spectrum analyzer that pulsates with the music. It's a great looking addition to the unit. The equalizer range can be switched from 6dB to 12dB which makes it easy to make precise small adjustments or shape the sound with a large curve. The LED level meters can show either the input or output level, and there's also a switch to bypass the unit altogether if needed. The overall sound quality is really good, and the controls are easily adjustable. The unit is small and lightweight which makes it easy to transport, too. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase.

                    We broadcast some church services over the internet. We were having problems with the sound being overmodulated, especially with people that have voices.
                    The FBQ800 cleaned up all the sounds without any extra work, and for those very deep voices, a few tweeks and they sounded great.

                      I needed something small and reliable for a monitor system requiring some shaping. This does the trick. Low noise and does not degrade the sound audibly.

                      Good stuff!

                        I put the Behringer MINIFBQ to a somewhat different use. My son gave me a pair of powered monitor speakers for Christmas and I happened to have a Nakamichi CD changer. I hooked the two up and it sounded great, but I wanted more control over the volume and frequency response. A Google search found the Beheringer MINIFBQ FBQ800 equalizer for *under* [$] and I figured what's to lose -- you spend more for a cheap date nowadays. I purchased the FBQ800[...] After a trip to the [*]to get the needed cables I put the FBQ800 between the Nakamichi and the speakers and was shocked at how good this system sounds. The FBQ800 gives a plus-or-minus 6 or 12 db boost or cut from 62.5 Hz to 16k Hz in 9 steps, doubling the prior frequency at each step. This gave me far more control over the frequency response than I needed, but what the heck. I subsequently learned from my son, who is lead singer in a good but amateur rock-and-roll band that Beheringer has a very good reputation among musicians. The unit seems very well made and documented. I can't think of anything I don't like about it.Also, I would like to put in a good word for B&H. The walk-in store is one of the better places in NYC to shop for cameras and photographic accessories. The web store was equally as good with fair prices, [...]
