        I'm no audio expert but have been learning on the fly. We played a gig shortly after receiving this unit and feedback issues I had been experiencing went away - and that's with the default settings! I'll have to see if playing around with the controls make the sound even better.

        Comments about Behringer SHARK FBQ100 Automatic Feedback Destroyer:

        First off, this little box obviously doesn't work as well as higher end dedicated equipment for each of its functions, but it has been invaluable in my toolkit because it does a bit of everything pretty well.

        The line delay works great, but the instructions that come in the box don't seem to include one detail: to speed up the scan rate, hold the up/down button in the direction you want to go and then tap the other button to change the scan speed.

        The feedback eliminator works fairly well for an automatic feedback system. Other functions work as advertised.

        Wonderful, inexpensive tool to keep around for when you inevitably need it!

          Comments about Behringer SHARK FBQ100 Automatic Feedback Destroyer:

          I bought this item for two main reasons:
          1. to use as a delay box for sync of live audio with soundboard and video editing/audio sync
          2. to use for feedback suppression on monitor sends
          This unit performs very well at both. Some have criticized the compression, but I was able to get a not overly squashed tone trying that out. The gate is a nice feature too. This unit does give off some heat and I do not intend to rackmount it for that reason. Good bang for the buck!

            I use this to delay audio so it syncs up with a video feed. Simple to use. Can't go wrong at this price. A stereo option might be nice.

              Great value for the money! Very functional! We use the compressor and the delay to control all ouputs of our mixers for your school media productions. I took away one star for not including the manual in the box. I had to go to the manufactures website to download it then print it out.

                i have played with this thing for about a week and have used it in about 8 setups so far. the best use for this little guy in my opinion is for the delay. I do not like the compressor, feedback eliminator or gate on this unit.delay is perfect and for [$] cant beat it

                Currently only using the delay feature to time audio monitoring to LCD HD video monitor in a post-production edit suite. LCD delay varies between high-def and standard-def projects and the FBQ100 makes it easy to set up the appropriate delay. Would be 6 stars if it had presets to recall, but for all its functions, it is a great purchase.
