I preordered one of these with Music123 a couple weeks ago for $29.99 and it arrived yesterday! Yes - its pretty much a version of Sansamp Bass DI - same controls and functionality. Sansamp is a more solidly built unit, but I prefer the layout of the Behringer over the two. Soundwise - to my ears, not much difference. The Behringer will give you very good tube emulation (Fat tube and SVT settings). Plugged it into a Harke 4000 - flat settings - Mesa Boogie Diesel 1X15 and played my Spector. VERY warm sound - very SVT-like - I was pleasantly surprised. Having fun adjusting the settings and getting a wide array of very usable sounds out of it! For $29.99 - this thing can't be beat! Very satisfied with the purchase!
