    Flexible Sound Processing Unit

    I have two applications for this sound processor and it works well for both. The first is for equalizing a stereo listening room after acoustic treatments were installed. I can attenuate some modal remnants in the room as well as flatten out the low end response curve from 20Hz to 100Hz between the main speakers and powered sub-woofer. I used REM software to measure the room response and provide the detailed filter settings for the unit. The second application is for a large screen television application where I wanted to compress the audio (when loud material such as from commercials) is present, to improve the room response, to widen the stereo imaging from the sound bar speakers, and to optionally apply filters to improve voice intelligibility which is appropriate to most material. The unit is very easy to use and it has more processing power than either of the applications require.

    From time to time I required something to reduce and eliminate feedback for wedding ceremony events. The worst thing to have is feedback during the "I do" part of the ceremony. In tight confined indoor locations this product gave me the needed headroom for microphone gain before feedback. It also provided EQ analysis for room PA sound and music playback. The real time analyzer functions comes in handy as well as the choices for metering and bar graph displays of audio signals.

    Technically it takes a bit of time to learn how to use this product. I'm still learning so plan on playing and experimenting with the product before going live. Of course the live experiences are valuable learning sessions too but not the feedback.

    I did notice that the LCD display seems to flicker at various contrast setting. I thought perhaps this was a problem with my unit but the replacement did the same. It would be great if Behringer resolves that issue someday.

    All in all its amazing what this product does for the price point.

    Best processor for ESSB, on HamRadio user

    I have used the DEQ-2496 as the core processor for voice audio on ham-radio, I CAN "T find anything that can beat this little processor , the daisy chain equalizers produce any audio you wish. The down side is the poor electronic components quality, for the most part made in china. They are very likely fail rather soon.

    Great product

    Amazing equalizer so many options to get your projects taken care of. The owner manual lacks descriptions of all the functions you can do.Takes time to learn the functions. Great price and very good service sweetwater, Thank you

    For whats its worth I'd Say its all right

    Well, I am one of the last to buy Behringer but I have seen over the past year a major improvement in the company (especially their mixers and control surfaces).

    This device DEQ2496 is particularly interesting and quite enjoyable to work with. You have basic processing capabilities. Equalizers, compressor/limiter, expander, Stereo Imager, AES, Optical connectivity - which btw is pretty decent expander as compared to other noise gates and such, the stereo imager is one of my favorites just because lets say i have two tracks one panned to the left, other to the right. both are from two mic's recorded stereo or dual mono on an acoustic guitar. Well you tweak the stereo imager for the left then right channels then play them together the image is perfect. The graphic EQ is intuitive meaning you get it right away no learning curve. Basically its a mastering tool. The Feedback destroyer was one of the big reasons why I went for this however I have yet to examine it in its full capacity. So far I've only been using this processor for about 45 minutes via AES > Symphony I/O. Oh and last but not least IMHO, are the meters! Remember - meters never lie and they can be your guidemap as to what is really going on. In other words if you don't see the meter bridge lighting up you're doing something wrong. :) all in all a pretty neat processor that can be used in place of a lot of more expensive and complicated gear.
