Hi,ASR has measured the Behringer A800.
Could this be why most people have found it to sound bad?
Why do you keep posting ASR reviews on here?
Hi,What kind of measurement did you expect from a budget Behringer class D amp. With the best respoct in the world why would anyone buy one of these and hope to achieve high fidelity?
I do not wish to sound like a hifi snob but for the same money second hand there are some great performing little hifi amplifiers to be had .
True Shadders ,, can't stand the stuff personally. Lost interest in Naim when i saw the early amps thermal trip with moderately difficult loads.Hi,
I posted the Naim Uniti Atom THD results which is 2x worse than the Behringer. Yet Naim is not seen as less than "high fidelity".
Hi,Without putting too finer point on it ……but what the f**k do all those graphs mean !!!
Can buy it new for £219 inc. shipping.Hi,
The Behringer A800 has half the distortion of the Naim Uniti Atom for a 1kHz signal.
The higher frequencies (5kHz+) may be different, where the Behringer may be worse, but a £299 amplifier (Behringer) out performs the Naim (£2k) through most of the audio band.
The Naim has power supply issues - high 120Hz (US testing location) signal, and its 2nd and 3rd harmonics are high too. The 120Hz noise from the PSU is higher than the 3rd harmonic (the highest) of the amplifier due to the 1kHz test signal.
From this, objectively, the Naim is poorly engineered on the amplifier section, but does contain a streamer which adds value. The designs of Naim amplifiers are on the internet for the NAP series - clones are sold too - and the design is not up to date.
The fact that the Behringer is £299, has the name Behringer and not Naim, and is a class D, does cause criticism where it is perhaps, unwarranted.
Hi,I was intrigued so I also had a look around but came away with a slightly different conclusion summarised by one comment, “Looks ideal for clubs, pubs and mobile discos.”
