  • Summary: there is a free editor out there to edit from your PC (sorry MAC).Save profiles. Behringer is cheap , and yes you take your chances with QC, but send it back if its broke and get another. I Googled for the best price $274 from an unknown retailer, and took a while since they drop shipped from CA , they are located in Texas. Using it with the settings from NU9Ns page.in a rack with a Heil PR40 and other Behringer and Presonus and Aphex stuff.

Amazing set of audio tools for the price

  • Summary: Had this for a while now, testing and using mostly in an audiophile stereo setup. Was a bit skeptical from other reviews of this unit (heat issues and such). But Behringer hasn't upgraded it with a new version for nearly a decade now. For me, it seems to work amazingly well. I am using it in a full digital configuration from a computer to DAC to digital input on DEQ.

"Unique does-it-all audio processor will replace multiple various individual processors for so little money."

Love It

  • Summary: I've got this baby in the digital path between my PC and my DAC, to adjust for room acoustics, enhance the stereo image, etc. The functionality is huge and it seems to sound great. If you are technically inclined and/or a gadget nerd like myself, this thing is just irresistible for the price. In terms of reliability, I have literally left it on continuously for the last three years, and I've had no issues whatsoever. Great gear.

Much better than the model 10 years ago

  • Summary: I purchased an Ultracurve for a church audio system 10 years ago when Behringer first introduced the concept of a digital EQ to the market. It was an indispensable too then and also today. The product today is much more improved and refined than the one 10 years ago. The user interface is improved and their are more options for digital processing such as 1/64 RTA analysis and even narrower parametric EQs. The AUTO EQ feature works much better today than back then.

frustrating device!

  • Summary: When I bought this beastie, it said it had RCA connectors -but, it turns out, the RCA connectors are for output only. There are no RCA inputs. Furthermore, these RCA jacks are made for music professionals using electric guitars, amps, mixers, etc. and so take RCA jacks that are a giant version of the phono-style RCA jacks on most home audio equipment. The home audio RCA connector does NOT fit into the Behringer RCA jack.

Amazing & Unreliable -- Behringer Could Care Less

AudiophileHeadCase, amazon.com
23 July 2011
  • Summary: I've owned a Behringer DEQ2496 for my HiFi setup and love the features. Had it now for about 4 years. Digital equilization done with a proper measurement mic and Real Time Analysis (RTA) software like on the DEQ2496 is the only way to get proper sound from your HiFi. You'll have to buy a special measurement mic separately -- Behringer sells a decent one for about $50.

Great for studio and home stereo/High-End use!

E. Holm, amazon.com

  • Summary: I bought this many years ago, maybe around 2005.. It came pre-installed with the v1.4. I had heard that earlier versions had some reliability problems, like simply shutting down permanently even after short term use, or after some time. I have used mine many times a week (often for many hours pd.), and it still works like new.

Like lemonade? This may be the unit for you :-)

  • Summary: So the features of this unit are really really nice. The EQ options are just not comparable to anything else on the market until you get into the $4k price point. Oddly there is nothing else out there that allows for storing multiple EQ profiles. My entire use for this was to save profiles for Rig1 FM, Rig1 SSB, Rig2 FM, Rig3 SSB etc. This way with my shared mic, I could just poke the profile and away I'd go. Only one problem...I couldn't get a unit that actually worked.
