Mike - How do you connect this guitar amp to your radio? It looks like one way is use a cable with a stereo 1/8" mini plug on one end and a stereo 1/4" phone plug on the other end. This cable connects from the headphone jack on the radio to the CD input on the guitar amp. Since the amp has no volume control for the CD input, I assume you're using the radio's volume control instead.

Gary

The similar Behringer GM108 includes a master volume control, so it would probably be usable from the line out jack or the headphone jack from the radio to the CD input on the amp.

These look like neat little guitar amps. I've seen Behringer stuff before, but not these particular items.

Mike

actually I think this model is better:

it has a 4 band EQ VS the AT108 having a 3 band EQ. this is more valuable than having a MIC input

Mike

here are two approaches to hooking these amps to a receiver. if you think that your receiver audio amp sucks (high distortion), then use the REC out signal to the MIC input, if you choose one with a MIC input, or else you have to use the speaker out with a patch cable to the MIC or instrument input. that would also then determine where you control the volume.

Mike

swap meets,pawn shops and garage sales are good places to find guitar amps a at big savings.
my biggest recomendation is to go for a three band EQ if possible. next is at least a 5 inch speaker. 8 is much better

Gary

Keep in mind that many radios have stereo headphone or line out jacks, and the only stereo input on these Behringer amps appears to be the CD input. Also, a mic input may be too sensitive for a line-level output.

Gary

Unfortunately, the tone controls don't work with the CD input (for the AT108 at least; not sure about the GM108).
