Behringer Europower PMP4000 Powered Mixer
Behringer endeared themselves to many by making quality workhorse music equipment more accessible and affordable.
Case in point is the Europower PMP4000, a popular powered mixer with 16 channels and 2 x 300W rated power amplifier section which features their Class D (low temperature operation) amp design.
Much like most of their products, this one comes packed with a hefty amount of bells and whistles, including a 7-band Graphic EQ and multiple effects.
- Inputs: 4 x 1/4" (Stereo Pairs), 1 x RCA (Stereo Pair), 6 x Phono
- Channels: 16

- Phantom power: 8 Channels

- Outputs: 6 x TRS, 2 x RCA Tape, 1/4" Headphones

- Faders: 15 x 60mm

Many who upgraded from older mixers were impressed with the Europower PMP4000, stating that it really improved and simplified much of the soundman's work. Clarity and overall sound quality received a lot of commendations, even those that rated it poorly for other reasons cannot help but praise the sound. From karaoke to band gigs, many have put this mixer to good use without many problems.
The most notable complaint is that the marketing material, and some online stores, specify the peak power rating of 800W per channel. This led to some users finding the actual program power to be underwhelming, specifically, those that wanted to use the PMP4000 on medium and bigger sized venues.
The Behringer Eurpower PMP4000 is highly recommended if you need an all-in-one mixer + amplifier solution for a small venues.
Although this was previously on our recommended list, there are now more highly rated options available which you can see in our guide to The Best Powered Mixers.
