I believe a few others have used this before, albeit a very few. IIRC, it will work fine. If it's that cheap, I see no reason not to try it out. You'll have to manually input the filters.

is it worth a higher cost.
It appears to have more features, so that would make it worth the higher cost - if you need them. Also, it looks fairly nice, while the FBQ is downright ugly. That might be worth something, if you feel the same way. It might also be a better choice for full-range use (you didn't say what you were going to do with it).

One thing I noticed in the 220i literature is that it lists the frequency response as 20hz -20khz. The FBQ2496 lists it's frequency response as <10hz - 44khz.

While it seems both units can only set filters down to 20 hz, being able to pass a signal through that is less than 20hz is pretty important for subwoofer use. :nerd:

You can always use REW's nifty RTA feature for other equalizers, as I did here.
