EQ Thats affordable


Hello All - Every now & then I want a little high/low bump on various recordings . My room is treated and gear listed below. Just for a test I connected my Alesis MEQ-230 and its super noisy (although not sure if I have the best chain connection)
I’m looking for something under $1000 , Here’s what Ive been looking at :

Behringer DEQ2496
DSPeaker Anti-mode 2.0
Mini DSP

obviously a remote or app is a plus....

Also whats the best connection / routing??

Lyngdorf 2170 Amp (high end analog inputs / digital / XLR)
Allnic H1201 Phono Stage (RCA)

mainly for LPs ...I do stream ..have EQ options there..

any recommendations on other options appreciated , thanks !

I only have experience with Mini DSP which are very good if used conservatively. If you use a digital source then the best bet would be SPDIF/I2S from the source into the MINIDSP then SPDIF/I2S into a DAC of your choice; for analoge go for the balanced version. The measurement mic is worth getting as well if you're trying to track down specific frequencies.
Are you saying you have a Lyngdorf 2170? Why don't you use the built in EQ?
The Lyngdorf has a grouping of "presets" that don't really suit me..I'd like more control....thanks 
Between Behringer and miniDSP I recommend the latter.
Also, miniDSP has a number of digital-only models that you can put before your DAC.
Which MINIDSP model do you guys recommend? , I don’t have a DAC , I use Mac PowerBook pro to run files ...VPI prime scout Turntable for LPs...I was thinking the MINIDSP HD and pragmasi suggested the “balanced” model ...not sure why? Thanks
