Excellent product. I use it dayly, mostly as equalizer on my audio system.
I own two of these and they do their job flawlessly.
It would be nice a new version with wifi and remote control.

No clue
Peter Dutch Holland 06.12.2021
I have no clue how this device sounds. The one i received was clearly not 'new out of the box' and did not even work. It seems to take months to get it repaired. When i contacted customer service they tried to do as if dirty fingerprints and poorly replaced protection foil is normal. Yes for B-stock that may be. Not for a new product. So once again, how this Behringer sounds. No clue.

Behringer DEQ2496 Ultra-Curve Pro
James U. 24.05.2013
The Behringer DEQ2496 Ultra-Curve Pro had been around for quite a few years now and still provides an excellent and cost effective solution.

Compared to the Behringer DCX speaker management unit, the display is clear, but like the DCX, provides a comprehensive set of facilities and acceptable audio quality. Having worked with units by all the big names, the DEQ 2496 stands out with good security features ideal for installs and environmental applications.

The unit seems to last well in installs but must like all electronics be kept as cool as possible as this shortens its life. My personal experience of over 100 of these units in live, conference and venue applications is very good but not without a few dead on arrival, which Thormann deal with efficiently.

I recommend this unit.

A bit Gimmicky for the studio
Leftism 07.05.2019
Its probably excellent as a tool for live work.
For the studio the widener is a bit gimmicky. Sounds amazing at first then after the excitement dies and you listen it is actually quite fatiguing.
I wasn't to keen on the sound of the compressor and limiter, my TC tripple C sounds quite a bit better and can really squash.
However I found the EQ to be very good and usable in a studio.

I tried the AD DA converters and they are not bad at all if a little dated sounding..
AD into AES sounded good.

Not Bad.. possibly not the best sounding studio tool around -

Good value for money - some plugs might be easier to use etc
