How to connect DEQ2496 in hi-fi system, between a digital source and an external DAC.
DEQ2496 can be used for digital signal processing to 'change' or 'shape' the frequency response of a music signal. In fact, it can do so many things that it is almost impossible to list them all (even in the DEQ2496 manual) but the purpose that we are most interested in as audiophiles, is its ability to tailor individual frequencies, rather like those graphic equalizers that you have probably seen. But by doing the processing in the digital domain (instead of with the analogue signal), much less 'harm' is done. That's a very simple way of putting it but it should be a good enough explanation that won't confuse anybody. By being able to manipulate certain frequencies, we can compensate for 'problems' caused by the system, or more likely, by the listening room. For instance, the room that you are listening in will boost certain frequencies and cut others. This is what causes that bass boominess that a lot of systems suffer from. I originally used the DEQ2496 just to deal with the bass response of my speakers, and only used it up to 300 hz but it is arguably better used at higher frequencies. Read more here

Using as a DAC for Headphone
Seriously speaking -the shortest explanation of the DEQ2496 is that it is sitting between the transport and the DAC, it is feeding on the S/PDIF digital signal, and on the fly, in the real time - it can manipulate the digits in such way, that the resulting output has different musical properties. It has over a dozen of functions, including graphic equalizer, room correction, delays, scene geometry corrector, speaker placement corrector, etc. On top of all that, the Behringer Ultracurve DEQ2496 - just for headphone monitoring - has a DAC too !!! Yesssss, that's the AKM AK4393. Japanese miracle magic dac. Read more here
