NAMM 2011 - The mighty, mini BEHRINGER 302USB

Of all the new gear coming out of NAMM 2011 this Behringer Xenyx 302 USB mixer seems to be the one that I would like the most right now. I am definitely in the market for a new soundcard and this simple mixer seems perfect for my needs. Mixer, powered by USB with interface built in. Totally portable. Nothing fancy, you don't even get phantom power, but you have an assortment of connections and some simple but effective routing options. Behringer does not say when it will be available in the US and that makes me a bit nervous that I am in for a bit of a wait. Only $49.00 though which make me very happy. Hopefully the soundcard and D/A conversion will sound as good as the pandora or the USB Phono Pre I have been using. I have a feeling it will.


  1. Home recording used to be really expensive because back then, you had to buy a mixer and a really good sound card. Nowadays it's a lot cheaper with the availability of these great USB devices.

  2. How much phantom power does the Xenyx 302usb have?

  3. Sorry I don't know. I read some reviews that this device is actually quite noisy so I didn't end up getting it.
