Product Description

This ultra-linear Behringer A500 power amplifier is the top choice for recording studios and post-production work, yet its amazing price is just the beginning. You get true audiophile-grade performance that delivers 2 x 230 Watts into 4 Ohms or 500 Watts into 8 Ohms bridged, with enough overhead to always keep you on the safe side.

The Behringer A500's advanced convection-type cooling system guarantees stable, noise-free operation, while its servo-controlled design can drive virtually all passive speakers. A precise level meter and clip indicators are provided for accurate performance monitoring. Input connections are laid out on balanced XLR, 1/4 in. TRS and RCA connectors, making sure you never run out of connectivity options. Plus, the speaker outputs give you a choice between professional 'touch-proof' binding posts and 1/4 in. TS connectors.

To assure years of trouble-free operation, Behringer uses the ultra-reliable Toshiba or Fairchild high-power transistors that are known for their rock-solid reputation. In addition to all these features, an independent thermal overload protection system with LED indicators for each channel automatically protects both your amplifier and your speakers. Last but not least, Behringer relies on a tough high-current toroidal transformer for absolute reliability and lowest noise interference possible.

You deserve the very best in studio power amplification. Get the Behringer A500 and it will be love at first sight: it's reference-class audio, ultra-reliable quality and super-affordable!

- Ultra-linear power amplifier for recording studios, post-production, live sound and HiFi application

4 out of 5 (94 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Behringer A500 Studio Power Amp"
Overall: Easy to hook up and set. Clean audio with plenty of power. I put it into my studio which was built in 1962. It replaced a Sony 100 watt receiver which replaced a pair of Macintosh power amps running push pull quad 6L6GC tubes. It's been too long to compare it to the Macintosh amps but it's much cleaner than the Sony was.

"A miracle in value for high spec performance!"
Sound: The sound is fairly transparent, I was surprised at its performance. Feature: It's a power amp! input and output with volume nobs..... The only down side was the lack of banana plug sockets. But i simply added my own to it. messured the actual power output between 120 - 138 watts each channel at 8 ohms, nice! Ease of Use: Again, its a power amp! 2 volume nobs and a power button! Quality: Of course being a very low cost item the quality is going to lack in places, but where it does lack in the A500 is mainly in the plastic face plates. Internally the electronics are of fairly good build with, alot of the wiring being of a larger than average gauge and fairly solid looking circuits. Value: I work in a high end Hi-Fi audio store, and I can get anything from DENON, Cambridge Audio, NAD, Samson, Alesis at COST PRICE! And I went a boaght this Behringer A500 from another audio store! If that doesn't give you the message of the units value for extremely great performance, then I dont know what will! Manufacturer Support: I haven't had to contact behringer on this item so far. But I have dealt with them before in the past for my DDX3216 digital mixer, it had a busted processor and was OUT of warranty and they still fixed it with no charge! So I for one CANNOT trash talk this company for their support, at least their Australian support! Take that HATERS! The Wow Factor: Id definitely buy another one for my other 2 speakers! Overall: As I said before, I work in Hi-Fi, I could have gotten any stereo integrated amp from DENON, Cambridge or NAD below cost price. And I found the behringer outperforming all in almost all fronts, sure the Cambridge's are very nice sounding but they simply cannot compete with this for transparency of signal or come anywhere close in power output unless you want to spend 6 times the amount of money you would in buying the behringer. Product of the YEAR for me!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
