Behringer DEQ2496 Ultracurve Pro EQ

The Behringer Ultracurve Pro DEQ2496 is a high-precision digital 24-bit/96 kHz EQ/RTA mastering processor. Its extremely high 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 Behringer Ultracurve DEQ2496 features high-quality AKM (r) 24-bit/96 kHz A/D and D/A converters and two high-performance 32/40-bit floating-point SHARC (r) digital signal processors for ultimate sonic resolution and 113 dB 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 Behringer Ultracurve DEQ2496 also boasts balanced inputs and servo balanced outputs with gold-plated XLR connectors, stereo aux output, AES/EBU and S/PDIF inputs and outputs (XLR and optical). The internal switch-mode power supply assures maximum flexibility (100 - 240 V~), noise-free audio, superior transient response and lowest possible power consumption. Like all Behringer products, the DEQ2496 was manufactured under ISO9000 certified management.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (91 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good enough for entry level home hi-fi."
Sound: 10+ for the digital domain, no noise! Since I'm using it in a dedicated listening room, I'm a little more critical of the final sound and the onboard DAC isn't the best money can buy, but is more than adquate for the $300 pricetag. You can bypass it using the digital outs if a more refined DAC is available. Feature: Unfreakin' believable that they can cram so much processing into 1RU. PEQ, DEQ, DYN, LIM, fully controllable Image Enhancer, MIDI control, AES/EBU in/out, Optical in/out.... seriously, this is one of the last honest-to-God-bargains out there. I would like to see it support the Width processing whilst in dual-mono mode, but at $300, I can afford a 2nd one just for that function. Ease of Use: You don't learn how to fly a fighter jet after reading a manual. You have to get in a USE it, experiment, A/B compare, etc. This is no different. The layout is rather intuitive (I have no problems with it), but it's a complex device. The multi-function jogs are very helpful, but the lack of backlighted button text makes finding the right hotkeys a little tough in darker situations. Quality: No problems. Worked out of the box. Fit'n'finish is good. I'd expect to get at least 10+ years out of my home use (after that, I'll shoot myself if digital controllers are where they are today). I don't have any concerns about the quality of this product. Value: I couldn't find anything close to this price that allows me to autoeq my room. Manufacturer Support: The best support is the support you don't need. The Wow Factor: Yeah, it's pretty sweet. Overall: Since I can bypass the onboard DAC and select my own, I plan on using this for quite sometime. I'm extremely satified with the product so far.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "AMAZING guitar rig addition"
Sound: From the compressor to the expander and all the eq possibilities available, my tone went from"eh not bad, I can deal" to "it's tight and punchy and no fizzy hissy blah, I love it!" Feature: Best features have to be the parametric eq and the compressor, those shaped my tone to get the perfect punch to cut through the mix for home recording ideas and practice and gigs. Least useful (for me anyway) are the feedback destroyer and stereo widener because the feedback destroyer eats some of my tone and I don't need the stereo widener for a mono setup Ease of Use: It takes a lot of trial and error to get the sweet spot but that's with any setup and it's really your own personal preference. You'll be bouncing back and forth a lot to get what you want but the time spent is well worth it. Quality: Quality is fantastic! Behringer gets a lot of flack for shoddy products, but this device works wonders and it is an excellent addition to my rig, they did excellent! Value: This eq is $300, I was wanting an axefx which is $3000. Just do that simple math right there. Manufacturer Support: I haven't had any issues and figured the device out on my own, so I can't really say anything about support. The Wow Factor: Every guitarist that's a finicky with their tone as I am, needs one of these in their rig. I could never find the exact tone I wanted with the equalizations available on the pod alone. This fixed everything. Overall: Wow! That's all I can say! I added this to my rig to go with my line 6 pod HD pro x, and holy bologna it is a game changer. Using it as a dual mono setup with the left channel as a pre-eq and the right channel as a post-eq out into a carvin ts100 tube power amp and i have achieved tone nirvana! If you're going to use it in a stereo setup, I'd recommend positioning it after your fx processor or in the effects loop of your amp head.
