*Edit: So I bought one of these and wrote up some notes below in post #19. I saw this in the RAAL SR1A thread and started thinking about adding a standalone digital EQ box into my chain. I searched and couldn't find anything dedicated, so figured I'd start this thread. Here's what I've found regarding the DEQ2496: I downloaded the user's manual which says: I have a PI2AES source and I want to feed the EQ'd digital signal to my Bifrost 2 (coax only). According to @bengo, can I just stick one a "BNC female - XLR female" adapter into the DEQ2496's AES XLR output and use a BNC-to-RCA cable to feed the BF2? How transparent is the DEQ2496? How does the DCX2496 compare for just digital EQ purposes (I think it's like $100 cheaper)? Are there any other options worth considering (particularly smaller form factor - WAF on a 19" rackmount device is gonna be tough)?
