Anaheim, CA – It’s only Day 1 of NAMM 2013 and BEHRINGER’s X32 Digital Mixer is already making news.
Pro Sound Web announced that the X32 has been selected by the public for a highly-coveted Reader’s Choice Award! And, while many would have expected the X32 to win handily in the Small Format Console category, the honor came in the Large Form category — where the X32 was competing with consoles selling for up to 20 times the price, such as the Digico SD5 and Avid SC48 etc.! In fact, every other console in the Large Format category costs at least 3 times the price of the X32.
So, how did the X32 garner such praise in a category previously dominated by the big, expensive competition? Perhaps it was the fact that the X32 delivers an earth-shattering feature set that includes motorized faders, recallable digitally programmable MIDAS-designed mic pres, AES50 96-Channel digital audio networking and 16 FX slots crammed with over 40 studio-grade effects, dynamics and EQ. Sure, there are a few digital consoles that offer similar features, but as Pro Sound Web’s readers know, they all sell for much more than the X32.
Speaking on behalf of the BEHRINGER brand, MUSIC Group parent CEO Uli Behringer had this to say, “We are deeply honored to receive this recognition from Pro Sound Web and their readers. The X32 was developed as the ultimate expression of our commitment to design, engineer and build not only the best products possible, but also to make them affordable. ”The X32 has broken all records, selling more than 20,000 units in the first 6 months.
