- and the last thing you'll want is to crawl around under your desk running cables. The Behringer MONITOR2USB gets you off your knees and puts VCA-controlled Volume, Source selection, Phones and Monitor control right at your fingertips. With the incredible MONITOR2USB you can select from 3 sets of active studio monitors, 2 different stereo sources, plus a USB input for your DAW
- to create powerful, custom monitor mixes
- all in pristine, audiophile-grade sound quality.
Voltage Controlled AmplifiersWhile MONITOR2USB's Volume control is mechanically similar to an analog control, its use of Voltage Controlled Amplifiers (VCA) provides several major benefits. First, since a DC current flows through the volume control (instead of the audio signal) there is no degradation in sound quality, and none of the pops and crackles typically produced by an audio-taper volume control. That current is what actually controls the levels of the separate left and right amplifiers. Second, both the left and right channels remain proportionately accurate to their input levels. Third, better left/right channel separation is maintained, because there are no audio signals present at the volume control. And finally, you get amazingly precise and repeatable level settings you can count on.
Sometimes Bigger is Better!Small knobs make for low precision. Conversely, the bigger the knob is, the higher the precision. Think of a control knob as a circle. On a small circle/knob the distance from one degree to the next is very small, making it difficult to dial-in perfection. On our really big knob, the distance between degrees of the circle is much larger, allowing you to make high-precision adjustments with ease. The MONITOR2USB lets you set levels fast and accurately, which is of utmost importance when it comes to your mastering projects. \t
Built-in USB ConnectivityThe high-quality, built-in USB audio interface lets you connect directly to your computer and its digital library, creating the ultimate sound source control center
- no additional hardware required.
More Monitor OptionsIn the golden age of recording, engineers had to make the mix sound great in just two places, the studio and the car. When you consider the acoustic environments and the equipment used in each, it's not as easy as it sounds. Today's computer-based recordings have to sound great in even more situations, such as MP3 players, podcasts and other bass-challenged systems
- so experiencing your mix through as many speaker systems as possible is more essential than ever. MONITOR2USB lets you switch between up 2 pairs of studio monitors, listen through vintage-style small monitors (such as our C5A or C50A), add a subwoofer
- or any combination at the mere press of a button.
We Value Your InputWe gave the MONITOR2USB enough connectivity to handle just about anything you're likely to plug in. Input 1's balanced XLR sockets allow you to connect your mixer's output, while Input 2's XLR sockets accept a wide range of line level devices, including CD and DVD players. Plus, you can connect directly to your computer via USB to monitor your DAW, or playback other computer-based music files, such as backing tracks, mp3s, etc.
All-Access Backstage PassMONITOR2USB's rear panel provides connectivity for: 2 separate stereo source XLR Inputs (one with a +4 dBu/-10 dBV switch for line level devices); 2 separate stereo XLR Monitor Outs, plus an additional mono XLR Out; and a USB socket for your computer.
Phone HomeListening to live studio monitors is not always an option when you're mixing at home, so we gave the MONITOR2USB twin high-grade headphone amplifiers with separate volume controls. We also equipped the headphone section with an amazing Crossfeed control that emulates the stereo speaker panorama. This enables you create an open, natural sounding listening environment that is more true-to-life and not ear fatiguing
- even during long mixdown sessions.

- yours! With its wealth of I/O options and superb VCA-controlled audio, the MONITOR2USB has everything you need to make your next recording or mixing session
- the best one yet! Head on down to your local BEHRINGER dealer or get yours online today, and experience studio monitoring done right

See instructions below for how to search the site by our eligible shipping destinations.
Note: We cannot change a shipping address on an order after it has shipped. If an order is returned because it couldn't be received at the listed shipping address, we will accept the return but will not refund the shipping charges.

Canadian orders are charged in U.S. dollars. Actual charges are dependent on your bank's conversion rate. Your bank may assess additional fees for international orders.
Although items shipped to Canada receive their full factory warranty, they must be returned to a United States service center for repairs. We're not responsible for any shipping or customs fees incurred in such a case.

Immediate shipment is available Monday-Friday. A valid order placed before 5 p.m. EST will ship the same day when using Ground or Free 2-Day shipping. Ground and Free 2-Day shipping orders placed after 5 p.m. EST will ship the next business day.

Shipment and availability information updates from our warehouse to our website almost in real time. We are highly confident of the status of each item when you view a page. However, we do not reserve inventory being viewed or even placed in shopping carts, so we cannot guarantee an item's availability until you have placed your order. In particular, if you have been in the checkout area for more than about 10 minutes, we do recommend that you refresh the page to get the most current inventory prior to checking out.
What is a valid order?
A valid order is for a valid item at a valid price, placed with a credit card with complete and verifiable address and other information. Details.
Does immediate shipment mean immediate delivery?
Once an order is shipped, our carriers (Federal Express and UPS) typically guarantee a service time for when the order will be delivered to you. Our carriers have a very good record of delivering at their promised service time. We will ship immediately, and on all items, we will refund expedited shipping charges if the carrier's service levels for your chosen shipping method are not met.
If a product is in stock, is there any reason it will not ship immediately?
Exceptions are very unusual, but here are some examples of reasons that might prevent us from shipping immediately:
- Warehouse, call center, or web operations lose power or telecom connectivity.
- Warehouse, call center, or web operations lose capability due to adverse weather (blizzard), safety threat, or other factors.
