An ultra-linear power amplifier popular in recording studios and post-production work.

The Behringer A500 600W Reference-Class Studio Power Amplifier embodies true audiophile-grade performance, delivering 2 x 300 watts into 4 ohms or 600 watts into 8 ohms bridged. The overhead keeps you on the safe side, and the Behringer A500's advanced convection-type cooling system guarantees stable, noise-free operation.

The servo-controlled design drives virtually all passive speakers. Precision level meter and clip indicators are provided for accurate performance monitoring. The studio amp's inputs include balanced XLR, 1/4" TRS, and RCA connectors for versatile connectivity. Plus, the speaker outputs give you a choice between professional 'touch-proof' binding posts and 1/4" TS connectors.

To assure years of trouble-free operation, the A500 uses ultra-reliable Toshiba or Fairchild high-power transistors, both known for their rock-solid reputation. In addition to all these features, an independent thermal overload protection system with LED indicators for each channel automatically protects both your amplifier and your speakers. Last but not least, the Behringer A500 employs a high-current toroidal transformer for solid reliability and the lowest noise interference possible.

You deserve the very best in studio power amplification. Get the Behringer A500 Power Amplifier and enjoy reference-class audio and ultra-reliable quality that's super-affordable.

  • Excellent quality

    As reviewed by Forcelord50 on 12/11/2009

    I did alot of research on this power amp before I bought it, but my old receiver was failing and I needed something new/simple to power my setup. With the all the input options this model offered, as well as the 230W per channel in stereo I was convinced. So far this amp has provided plenty of clean power to my speakers and has sounded wonderful. I'm currently running it in one of the poorer configurations for quality, (e.g. binding posts, stereo, rca output) but I'm definitely going to get some TRS cables, banana plugs and new speaker wire to bring the quality up. I'll update this later, but for now, this is a much better amp than rated.

  • Excellent amplifier with a really wide bandwidth

    As reviewed by John Marzich on 6/29/2013

    The first thing I noticed was the weight of the thing. The next was clearly a super wide bandwidth of sound. Run my studio through it and a korg kronos x88 and other boards. Amazed at the difference from a class d amp I was using. Pristine sound and do not hear any varying distortion based on the volume control at all. My buddy that works at various studios and has his own always says you have the quietest studio I have ever heard. Now even quieter! Have looked inside various behringer amps and they are well built! no cheap parts or construction. I did warranty work for kurzweil and ampeg and others so have a good idea on amplifier classes and designs.

  • Don’t buy this amp…

    As reviewed by Dave O on 8/24/2009

    Don?t buy this amp? Behringer A-500 500 Watt REF-C I purchased this amp because my GEM amp died and was told my extended warrantee would tale 3 months to process so I purchased to hold me over? The amp worked great then channel 2 crapped out/over heated after running @ 70% program output for 30 minutes ?Well that was a let down? Chanel 1 however was still working fine? Thought I would let it cool down a bit and it worked after it cooled off? What junk this amp is? I bet I got someone else?s lemon from an RMA before repackaged up after some looser in QA gave it a once over and off it went to me, I have several other items by Behringer and they work great so I thought this would be good one unfortunately I an still without a amp so probably will just get a QSC and make my problems go away?..
