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

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.

great processing but no longer supports memory card
04.08.2016
Great tool for Speaker processing for mobile systems. But the removal of the PCMCIA slot in the latest units makes use for mobile systems a little less practical.
Presets can be stored in memory, but adding new presets or transferring between units now requires a PC/Laptop to be carried and connected.
Behringer, please bring back some sort of memory card slot or ideally a USB memory stick port.

good addition to my setup
bassplayer26, 18.02.2019
First- as always- very good service from Thomann- delivered as promised, quickly and as expected. I bought this unit to "match" my studio monitors to my room and this unit does this very well. Setup was easy although I was forced to search youtube for adequate information and how to's. User guide which came with the unit is useless, and offers only basic information -which I think Behringer could do better job here. But in the age of internet... This toy is packed with features and details and has covered all of my request's so far. Again great unit for great price from Behringer.

EQ is perhaps the least noticed of all types of audio processing, but also the most important.
