Value
The Behringer Europower EPQ304 300 Watt Power Amp was built for the working musician. They are exceptionally light, they pack massive power and they are built to last through all the rigors of the road. Plus its light price tag will leave you with enough cash left over to acquire more stuff to amplify!

Everything You Need
The simple front panel controls of these amps give you all of your sound's vital signs at a glance. After pressing the Power Button, the power LED will light when the amp is ready for action. Both channels have independent gain dials as well as clip LEDs that indicate when the signal is distorted and you need to reduce the gain. There are also signal LEDs that light up when a signal is present at the input.

The back panels of the EPQ304 accept balanced XLR. The EPQ304 has an MONO On/Off switch for INPUTS 1 AND 2, and another MONO On/Off switch for INPUTs 3 and 4.

Accelerated Transient Response (ATR)
It takes huge pulses of energy (current and voltage) to propel a woofer cone out fast enough to match a bass beat. That's called Transient Response and it's the holy grail of amp designers. By carefully selecting transistors with extremely high slew rates and optimizing other proprietary parts of our circuitry, Behringer amps are able to react instantly to even the most demanding electronic bass impulses. If the woofers in your PA system can keep up, your audience will hear a tighter, crisper, more natural sound.

General
Your general opinion of this product.
Like their other amps (I own 2 450s), this thing is built like a u-know-what house. Solid. It's actually lightweight for what it is, I was surprised at that. But hey, who wants to lug a rack that weighs more than you?
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Well-made; knobs, switches comfortable and sturdy. Light display is professional(by that I mean not gaudy)and to the point.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
I like the flexible nature of this device. I use it for monitors (with the 450s running primary and secondary mains). I run 2 Kustom KPM 110s and 2 210s wedges. This handles them perfectly without having to max out the amp: plenty of power. Manual was not very descriptive, but that was only disappointment I had (and a little one at that). Well, the manual doesn't amplify and distribute the signal, so I can live with it.
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Four channels instead of two is great, especially with the options available (mono/stereo/bridge). The only thing i would change is most folks have cords with 1/4" TS (or TRS) jacks, not the Speakons. I solved that by getting neutrik adapters, but they are like $9 apiece, so some might be hesitant to do this. For me, I like being able to handle any cable I need to use (and most of the 50's I have are 1/4"TS), so it was the option I chose. As I stated, this fits for me, so I can't say how it might work for someone else using it for a different application.
Sound
How is the tone?
Beautiful. I run it off a power conditioner (a Furman M-8Dx I also got thru AMS) and there is NO hiss, NO hum. It is quieter than the 450s, which aren't that loud to begin with.
