This review is from: Behringer MA400 Monitor Headphone Amplifier (Electronics)
I have used this for about six gigs now, and for the price I have no complaints at all. The Mic input might not work with a phantom powered mic, but the fact it has a Mic Input and a Mic Thru is a bonus! If you're looking for a basic preamp with a good amount of headroom this is very reasonable, for similar features you could easily spend double.
As already stated in another review, I found taking a monitor out from a desk/pod to be the best approach, as you can adjust each vocal/instrument monitor mix independently. Also, I've found the mono/stereo function to work. But this is entirely dependent on whether your desk/pod is stereo and you use a stereo lead. As a drummer, I personally find having the mix in mono is preferable especially if you have two guitars in a band.
Conclusion: For the money and the features it's a very small price to pay!
