I own some low-end Behringer gear, and have sometimes though about
more. There was definitely a time period where they were known for
making crummy knockoffs, but it seems to be a dated picture of the
company. I'm not surprised to hear that opinion from a gear-head,
since the gear-heads seemed to have retained that opinion of them.
Realistically - it's all about how much money you want to blow.
That's all gear ever comes down to. You can spend $100 on a
audio frob, and it doesn't matter who made it. It's just not gonna
sound like a $5k box.
So if you hear a Behringer, and it's in your price range, and it seems
like a good option, don't be scared because they have a bad name with
people who would spend $10,000 on an amp.
