Is there a way to find out if the units have v1.4 or v1.3
You require access to the front panel.

So I was wondering if I should care so much about the
accuracy of the FBQ vs DSP
No, that's not really an issue.

Re: Behringer FBQ2496 or DSP1124P

Some folks say that the FBQ2496 has better circuitry than the DSP1124P

Does it equate to cleaner output from the FBQ. I think I am hearing
subtle distorsion from the DSP at higher frequencies even though I am
not filtering them. Is it possible that the A/D, D/A converters on DSP1124P
are not high quality and for $50 more does the FBQ offer better A/D, D/A converters

Also I didnt not see anything in the manual of FBQ about the number of filters
on FBQ. I have the DSP so I know it has 12 filters (presets). If the FBQ has only one,
then I cant have multiple filters like one fot HT, one for movies, one only when
fronts are used for music, one when both fronts and sub is used for music etc.

So other than having 20 bandwidths are there any advantages of the FBQ.
People say it has better circuitry but for $50 more how much better is it
compared to DSP? Will I hear any difference in the sound quality between
the 2, assuming I use same 12 bands on the FBQ also instead of the 20.

Right now the main advantage I see with the FBQ is that it has 20 bands
and using REW I am able to get a better curve than DSP. But if I want a
different filter then I have to reload a new one. Even if I can use the midi and
have the REW download the filter, I still have to do it every time I want to
try a different filter. Where as with the DSP I can enter several of them
one time and just switch them. Has anyone found this to be a major
drawback>

Re: Behringer FBQ2496 or DSP1124P


Lots of questions, I don't know if any one person can answer all of them.

I will say that if you're hearing bad things from the DSP at higher frequencies, then maybe you should go with the FBQ. The FBQ has different converters than the DSP, so I guess it's possible that they're better. That said, comparing the two nothing I see in the FBQ's specs screams "better" to me, except for the Crosstalk spec (don't know enough about AD/DA converters to say which kind is inherently better).

Wayne

Re: Behringer FBQ2496 or DSP1124P

i have the dsp1124p w 1.4 firmware.

I know my dsp1124p has 10 presets each with 12 programmable peq

for the FBQ2496 I see it has 20 programmable peq... but does it only have ONE/NO preset?

Yes as I recall, the FBQ has no presets.

thank you... i was wondering if i should jump ship and get the fbq but i think i prefer having 10 presets, that way various type of curves can be stores at various presets for various listening needs.

Also seems like there maybe no difference between FBQ and BFD sonically at sub frequencies. Once thing i experienced when setting my level to the bfd was i had my sub output in the avr to +10 at my listening level 70db to get some action on the leds.

Re: Behringer FBQ2496 or DSP1124P

You can get 2 presets out of the 2496 although it's a workaround. Use either 2 Y cables or splitters from the sub and receiver. That way you can connect to both the R and L Channel of the 2496 and use each as a preset. The R and L button on the front will let you switch between them.

Re: Behringer FBQ2496 or DSP1124P

Have you actually done this? Several months ago I tried y connectors- I used split input right/left from processor and split right/left outputs to sub. As I remember, one channel would override the other and blank out its (other) settings. I would love to make this work as I have two different locations I sit in the room depending on outside light for reading!

Re: Behringer FBQ2496 or DSP1124P

Wayne-

Thank you, it is right there. What I must have done is hold left-right button too long when switching- that returns it to stereo mode "and the settings from the active channel are automatically carried over onto the other channel".
