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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
