Behringer is NOT in any way high quality, but it is low cost. Mackie 
and Aphex are two companies who took successful legal action against 
Behringer, but they are FAR from the only companies whose products 
were copied (right down to the use of Mackie's OEM parts made 
specifically for Mackie and mistakes on the circuit board). It's a 
lot easier to sell a product for less money if you don't have to pay 
engineers to do the design, use cheap parts and cheap construction, 
and don't provide support for the product. Again, you can find 
documentation of this stuff with a google search. Aphex won in a 
German court, and Mackie settled out of court.
