Overview

The BEHRINGER POWERPLAY P16 system is the easy, affordable way to give your musicians and vocalists what they really want-"more me!" P16-M Personal Mixers lets each performer take control of what they hear, allowing the engineer to concentrate on providing the audience with the best possible listening experience. Fast and easy to set up, a basic system can be installed and configured in a matter of minutes-and the system can be expanded to adapt to changing needs.

Tech-Free Zone
The P16-M's simple user interface makes it easy for even non-techies to dial-in the perfect monitor mix. For example, let's say the electric guitar is too loud in the lead vocalist's mix; they simply press the appropriate channel button (the one labeled E. GTR) and turn the Volume control to lower the guitar level in their mix. They can also adjust Pan (left to right mix), EQ (Bass, Mid with sweepable Freq control and Treble), and much more. All of these adjustments can be made without affecting anyone else's personal mix.

Easy Installation
A basic installation consists of one P16-I Input Module, which connects to the main mixing console, and up to six P16-M Personal Mixers, creating a system big enough to equip a typical recording studio, a small to medium-sized band, or a worship team. You'll also need a few standard audio and CAT5 cables. The optional P16- MB mounting bracket allows the P16-M Digital Personal Mixer to be attached to any standard microphone, music or drum stand. The system can easily be expanded via the P16-D Digital ULTRANET Distributor, six of which can be combined to drive up to forty-eight P16-M Personal Mixers.

Extraordinary Value
The POWERPLAY P16 puts total control of the monitor system where it belongs-in the hands of the performers, freeing up the engineer to sculpt the perfect front-of-house mix. The POWERPLAY P16 system is the easy, affordable way to tame runaway stage volume and give your musicians and vocalists what they really want-"more me!"

Before I purchased this piece of equipment I had a hard time finding reviews. So I wanted to make sure I wrote one once we set it up and used for a couple weeks. Why are people not trying this Behringer system? The price is a fraction of what you will pay for some of the others. We absolutely love the entire Behringer personal monitoring system. We purchased the entire system with 4 mixers. The sound quality is amazing and so easy to hook up. I challenge more people to give this a try and SAVE yourself a lot of money! You won't be sorry!
Lots of features on this personal mixer. EQ, saving individual mixes for your taste, adjusting volume for each individual track etc. Its amazing what this thing can do.
The knobs could be a little more sturdy. Not bad, but if you travel with a band you would need to be careful in the moving process. I'm at a church and we will not be moving our equipment so it's not an issue with us.
Love this little mixer and it serves us well! I would hate to go without it now.

Ordered 6 units in January of 2013. One failed October 2013 and was repaired under warranty - faulty soldering. Second P16-M unit failed April 2014 (no audio output) and not under warranty. Even though the devices have great features and intuitive interfaces, I would not recommend them because of my poor reliability experience.

    Comments about Behringer POWERPLAY P16-M 16-Channel Digital Personal Mixer:

    I received my Behringer P16M and P16i earlier this evening. Setup was incredibly easy. I was up and running through the personal mixer in a matter of minutes. The initial setup was from an Apogee Ensemble using the sends to the P16i. I sent a mix of bass drum, snare, hi-hat and guitar to 4 individual sends from my Apogee to the P16i then to the P16M via the included Cat-5 cable. The P16M was mounted on my Pearl Rack system so it was very easy to reach. I set the levels for each channel, tested the limiter and EQ successfully. The system was setup without reviewing the instructions at all. It was that simple. I will use it in a live setting soon. I would expect the same results.

      We purchased this system for our church and we are very happy with the result and it's performance.
      We had to run all the Cat-5 Cables, but that was a piece of cake... no problems.
      very easy to use and so far... no issues at all.
      Our Rep from the Guitar Center (Paul) was knowledgeable, patient and very helpful.

        I ordered this unit for our drummer at our church. This unit sound great! Using it is fairly simple, does take a couple minutes to get a good mix. You have to navigate and play with it for a bit before deciding to use it live but this unit is excellent. Crisp and accurate sound.

        Comments about Behringer POWERPLAY P16-M 16-Channel Digital Personal Mixer:

        Our church bought several of these to use with our Behringer digital soundboard. It is a pretty economical and reliable option for getting into personal monitors, and these let us clear most of the floor wedges off our stage and reduce stage volume considerably. The main downside is that it only gives 16 control channels from a 32 channel board, so there is some limited mixing capability for individual voices/instruments. That being said, it's still far better than having to interrupt rehearsal to request a change in each person's monitor mix. Good investment overall.

          We use these at our church. Each musician can mix their monitors to their own liking. I have used other monitor mixing solutions, but this by far is the most user friendly and best value for your dollar!

          Astounding

          from Nashville, TN

          Comments about Behringer POWERPLAY P16-M 16-Channel Digital Personal Mixer:

          Pros: Unbelievable Price 16 Channels of personal mixing in a tiny package Power carried over Cat-5e Recallable settings Per channel AND master tone controls Plenty of gain and headroom Sounds great for performing Cons: Higher noise floor than I would like Only one headphone output per unit Cramped labeling space Honestly, the cons are pretty nit-picky, because at this price and size, with this level of expandability and flexibility, I really have no complaints.

            This is the Behringer version of the popular Aviom monitoring system. IMO its better because of the cost and features like eq and limiter. The sound is true to the sound source and you don't even need power. Just plug up the ethernet cable and it fires right on. Had it for about a month and so far so great!

              I luv this product, especially considering the cost difference to the Aviom system; playing in a Rush Tribute means lot's of samples and loops to follow which means ya' gotta hear 'em, just great for IEM's!

              I use the stereo outputs of the p-16 to 2 active floor wedges.In ear has been unrealistic for my band. Behringer P16 is doing a great job for individual mixes with small stage monitors .The way we use it is ,if you cant here someone you touch him up in your own floor wedge .This way we dont have to hook up a bunch mics on the drums .this works for us ,might not for You .
