  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

A Whole Host Of Audio Tools

The DEQ2496 is regarded as the ''swiss-army knife'' of the mastering world, with a whole array of different features to optimise your rigs sound quality. Featuring a range of flexible equalization options plus dynamic and time-correction solutions, the DEQ2496 gives you optimal control over your sound, helping you achieve the perfect balance. Here are a slelection of some of the tools featured:

  • Dual 31-band Graphic Equalizers (stereo linkable)
  • Dual 31-band Virtual Paragraphic Equalizers (stereo linkable)
  • Dual 10-band Parametric EQ’s per stereo side
  • Dynamically-activated EQ
  • Feedback Destroyer with Learning Mode
  • Stereo Imager
  • Compressor/Expander
  • Limiter
  • Digital Delay
  • RTA/SPL/FFT Analyzer with Auto EQ function

Dynamic Equalization

One of the most unique features of the DEQ2496 is the Dynamic EQ (DEQ). This function automatically increases or decreases a defined frequency range based on volume level. Its comprised of a combination between an equalizer and a dynamic processor. This function is great for live performances as it controls any wild frequencies that are likely to affect the sound of the performance, this helps to rein in the unwanted frequencies by changing the volume of certain ranges. The multiple filter types are also fully controllable including a convenient bandpass mode for added versatility. You can also recall any DEQ settings at any time from the processor or via MIDI.

Feedback Destroyer

With all these digital modulation functions included in the DEQ2496, Behringer have also included a greatly-effective Feedback Destroyer (FBQ) function. Its basic design is that of a dynamically-activated parametric EQ that monitors the entire frequency spectrum, then intuitively identifies and removes feedback. The function can be run in Auto or Single mode. A handy feature included in the FBQ is the 'Learn Mode'. This generates short audio pulses and raises their gain until feedback occurs, letting the FBQ find and eliminate the feedback-prone frequencies.

Easy Setup And Use

The DEQ2496 features balanced inputs and servo balanced outputs with gold-plated XLR connectors, AES/EBU and S/PDIF inputs, stereo aux outputs plus XLR and optical output. All these connection possibilities help to deliver an all-in-one processing system ideal for live and studio applications alike. Many of the features are highly intuitive, delivering seamless functionality that can be affected and controlled at your desire. The high quality components and exceptional rugged construction ensures a long life.
