I use the digital output from my cd player to the digital input of my Behringer DEQ 2496. Then the digital output of the Behringer to the digital input of a Bel Canto DAC 1.1. This all using toslink. I think this is the best way to go but the dac in the Behringer is pretty decent, not as good as many dacs that cost 4-500 used though.
It's easy to hook up but you need to read the manual a couple of times before you use it. This thing is the best tweak there is imo.
I agree with Warnerwh the deq 2496 is an incredible product. Great value and does so many things. I've been playing with it for only a week and I've just scratched the surface of its capabilities. I'm a hard core vinyl guy but with this thing CD's are finally listenable. I bought my xlr/rca converters from Marketek if memory serves, very reasonable and no outlandish high-end markup. The word is that the A/D section is only fair but I will being trying it out soon with the vinyl rig just to take advantage of the transparent digital EQ.Who'd a ever thunk it!!!!!!
- Behringer should really include the microphone with DEQ2496, even if they have to increase the price. You need the microphone to get the most out of it.
- Unless you have fancy cable that you don't want to touch, re-terminate them with XLR connectors is cheaper and likely gives you better results.
