BEHRINGER ULTRACURVE PRO DEQ2496 The ULTRACURVE PRO DEQ2496 is a high-precision digital 24-bit/96 kHz EQ/RTA mastering processor. Its quality audio performance makes it ideal for audiophile mastering and PA purposes. There are 4 concurrently selectable EQ modules (31-band graphic EQ, 10-band parametric EQ, Feedback Destroyer and three dynamic EQs per channel). Another highlight is the additional 61-band RTA that can run simultaneously with the EQ section. The DEQ2496 features high-quality AKM 24-bit/96kHz A/D and D/A converters and two high-performance 32/40-bit floating-point SHARC digital signal processors for ultimate sonic resolution and 113dB dynamic range. There are also multi-functional level meters (peak/RMS, VU and SPL meter with dBA/dBC weighting via RTA mic input) plus 64 user memories for complete setups and/or individual module configurations. You get a separate RTA mic/line input with phantom power, a professional wordclock input and MIDI connections for full remote control, preset dumps and system updates. The DEQ2496 also boasts balanced inputs and servo balanced outputs with gold-plated XLR connectors, stereo aux output, AES/EBU and SPDIF inputs and outputs. The internal switch-mode power supply assures maximum flexibility (100 - 240V), noise-free audio, superior transient response and lowest possible power consumption. Like all BEHRINGER products, the DEQ2496 was manufactured under ISO9000 certified management.

    I bought this to experiment with room correction. I had a terrible bass resonance in the living room that made bass-heavy music unlistenable. After tuning the parametric EQs by ear with a signal generator as source, it made a huge improvement. I didn't use the Auto EQ function as I thought its 1/3 octave bands were too coarse. (The PEQs have a fine frequency step setting that was vital.) It also simplified my hi-fi setup as I can plug the CD player and laptop straight into its two digital inputs, and send the analog outs straight to the amp (but you need a volume control on the amp as the DEQ doesn't have one) I did some measurements on it and couldn't find any obvious problems with quality of the analog outputs, jitter, bad EQ algorithms etc. The only downside is that the plastic control knobs feel horribly flimsy, but I can't complain at the price- I'd rather have that than nice knobs and lousy sounding EQ algorithms.
