Midas and Klark Teknik = Behringer? Say It Isn't So

It seems that both the Midas (maker of some fine broadcast, recording and live sound mixing consoles) and Klark Teknik (maker of some fine signal processing equipment) business components of Bosch Communications Systems have been sold to the Music Group, who owns Behringer.

This truly is a sad day for quality audio products.

Behringer makes *some* good gear, but the rest is simply not up to the standards that professional sound engineers require.  Their original Composer Pro (now superceded) and their current ADA8000 are nice (for the price), however that's about all of the Behringer kit I'd consider buying.

Let's see if the Music Group rolls Midas and Klark Teknik down to Behringer's standard or pushes Behringer's standards up towards Midas and KT.
