Behringer DEQ2496 - worth using in hi-end system?
I'll be ordering it soon. But I just don't see any reason to use it as DAC, it worths its price just for its digital abilities.I've been using mine as a DAC for a couple weeks now. I admit it took over for my Harmon Kardon DVD25, which "supposedly... 
Give Ty a call. He'll fix you up. He's good at what he does and your sub would match your Tylos. 
One thing that comes to mind is dirty switches. Do you hear "crackling" when you turn the volume knob or when pushing any source buttons? If so, some contact cleaner may solve your issue. Another suggestion is if there is a mute or attenuation swi... 
Tyler Acoustics Linbrook/Super Mini Monitors

Behringer DEQ 2496 help
Got it figured, thanks anyway. 
Would spikes help me?
Zar, in short, yes. The biggest sonic improvement for components would be minimizing vibration to and from your transport,(actually turntable if you're into analog) Many here use vibration dampners under their amps as well, but I think you'd need ... 
digital cable vs. satellite standard definition
It doesn't matter how good the picture is when you lose your sat signal, it may not hapen often but when it does it's quite frustrating. Personally I'd go cable. By the way I have satellite now but will change to cable when I move in August. 
I love this hobby-
Here's what I find fascinating. I am quite new to high end audio, and since I aquired my gear I am blown away by how much different music I listen to. Most of the music I found here on Audiogon. Patricia Barber, Melissa McClelland, Lisa Monheit, C...
