Behringer XENYX QX1202USB is a mixer that offers clear and natural sound in a compact and portable format. With twelve inputs, four high-quality XENYX mic preamps, a multi-FX processor with legendary Klark Teknik reverb and a USB interface, this versatile mixer is ideal for a wide variety of mix and recording applications, from small-stage gigs to home-studios, mid-size corporate events and more. The XENYX QX1202USB is quick to set up and operate with all connections and controls easily reachable on the top of the unit. The first four input channels feature XENYX mic preamps, which deliver 130 dB of dynamic range, low-distortion signals and a wide frequency response extending from 10 Hz to 200 kHz. Switchable 48V phantom power allows you to plug in both dynamic and studio-grade condenser microphones. The four sets of stereo inputs each feature +4/-10 switches used to match the mixer's input sensitivity to the incoming signal. This helps avoid signal degradation when connecting stereo keyboards or playback devices to the mixer. Pan (or balance) and level controls are included for all channels. The 2-Track section provides an easy way to connect an external 2-track recorder and/or playback device. The 2-Track inputs are assignable to either the main mix or to the control room/phone outputs. The main mix fader controls the signal at both the main outs and 2-Track output, while a dedicated knob adjusts the volume for the phone/control room outputs.

As far as the noise floor goes, that's fine, it's well made and sturdy but ... it wobbles on a flat surface which is where it will be mostly used. It rocks and scratches a decent desk.
Yes, it works well BUT:
This mixer overheats in a way I consider dangerous !! It has already stripped the varnish off my desk where it was placed ... it is possibly outside of HSE standards ?
This particular unit is being handed to a HSE officer this week.
There are no rubber feet to elevate it for the free flowing air to cool it., obviously there is no cooling fan.
There is no on/off switch
The great shame is that basically it's a good mixer and has many useful features ... but it's dangerous !
Noise levels are very acceptable for the price, and this is a cost effective way to get usb connectivity to your DAW, whilst adding a few filters/ effects on the way in. It really does everything that I need in a simple home studio set up. Apart from the hot running (and I can see why you don't want a fan in the mix), this looks built to last. In fact it has made me look again at the whole range, picking up a couple of very cheap C1 mics to add some room ambience to my set up. I can't quite believe how cheap but effective this audio equipment is these days.
However Behringer now produce their own products at a pice point. And here lies the problem some of the build is not great.
1) The case is not square and the mixer rocks - enough for my mic to pick it up. I thought this could be my desk so Intried it an extremely flat worktop. I returned it. The replacement exhibited by the same problem but not quite so bad. This can easily be fixed by a couple of felt feet.
2) The power connector is not particularly tight. It is pretty easy dislodge and should fit tighter.
3) No power switch. The mixer runs quite hot and the only way to turn it of is pulling the power lead or the mains.. As the power connector is not solid, I would wonder if I'll make it worse.
1) It seems pretty quiet
2) The built in effects are ok
3) it feels pretty robust
4) it's low profile means it comfortably sits under my desk shelf, especially with right angle connectors.
5) it has a lot of functionality on the mic channels
If you can live with the problems, or they are not relevant for you, then I'd recommend it. You might want some felt feet for the front.
Thought i would come back to review this as i've had nothing but great use from this.
Ive had this for six or seven years and never had a single issue it. it's an excellent piece of kit, so glad i purchased it.
Good: Cheap, flexible, great sound, low noise, lightweight and pretty.
Bad: Two pin plug (so need a shaver adapter), no on/off switch, runs very, very hot.
Summary: Recommended. So very nearly a perfect product. If Behringer would just fit a power switch, and more importantly a cooler running transformer, it would be unbeatable.
More info. I haven't used it with a pc yet.
I don't know how reliable it will be with all that heat inside. The bottom gets too hot to touch after about an hour (The psu runs hot too). A good diy'er could probably fit a fan underneath, and replace the euro plug with a three pin plug and an inline switch.
I bought a DI box for my electro-acoustic and then found that it plugs directly in! Similarly, my electric guitar works fine without a DI box. I'll probably find a use for the DI box one day...
The built in effects are okay but there is no parameter adjustment on them other than the amount of the effect that is applied per channel.
2017 update; Recently connected it to my windows 7 pc running Mulab DAW and it runs perfectly!
