Audiofanzine FR's review
Bad quality crossover and EQ.
it's hard to understand the settings in the beginning. The input summing architecture is not clear and the user's manual doesn't help a lot...
First the processing resources... Even without doing anything you only have 47% free processing power left
In a 3-way stereo configuration you can't make any changes to the settings because the free processing power falls under 1%!!! So you have to choose between crossover or EQ.
The crossover filters are not very effective: they don't really cut the frequency spectrum (they only attenuate a couple dBs) and the slope displayed is not correct.
The device is useless as a crossover!
Generally, EQs are made to correct frequency response... With the DCX, solving a frequency response problem will only create more problems...
+6dB really means a +4dB boost and a -2dB attenuation on another frequency. Or a +4dB filter at 150 Hz is canceled by a -3dB filter at 500 Hz and the result is a high-frequency boost. It's impossible to correct anything with it!
I connected a DEQ2496 in the signal path before the DCX. The level meters are not reliable: when the DEQ2496 shows -2 dB, the DCX shows -20 dB... As a consequence you have to set the DCX limiters at -20 dB (-24 dB is the minimum) to get 0 dB... It doesn't make sense.
The number of parametric EQs is limited: only one per output!!
Crossover and EQ frequencies have been preset. For example, you can select either 138 Hz or 141 Hz but nothing in between!
Once again, Behringer offers an interesting product with lots of details that aren't thought out. It's the same with the DEQ2496.
I would prefer a product with less possibilities but more parametric filters, reliable correction, the same level meter as the DEQ (adjustable if possible), a limiter with values under -24 dB and precise attack and release settings (like on the DEQ), a faster display (in some cases, you have to wait one second to see the changes on the display), continuous frequency selection (like on the DEQ). And also a memory card slot that doesn't require a 2 GB card for a few KB!!! Or better: a simple USB connector!
The DCX didn't come out that good In the latest test I made. Sounds are not reliable.
I don't know why so many so-called audio enthusiasts find it so good.
Before testing it, I wanted to give it a 5 (mainly because of the price) but now I give it a 0 because of the plentiful conception mistakes!
I strongly advise you against it! This product is rubbish and it is not worth a quarter of its price. They should be ashamed to sell such a product! It's a rip off! :angry:

At each make good analysis before buying equipment. For my part this material satisfies me in that I actually use.
There is no bad tools ....
My audio config:
TC Eletronic M ONE XL
MacMah IISeries SLX 200, 500, 600
Gemini RS310, 312.315
Puisance rated 2x900W multicast.
Before I had a CX2310 (analog active filter), perfect for beginners.
The DCX is day and night = digital brings a huge
for my use (optimize a powerful sound of rock group).
It also seems very popular with audiophiles (see AF forum).
Reliable, neutral, accurate and efficient, I could not do without.
on the other hand, in the beginning it is not easy to master
as setting options are extensive!
But the result is well worth widening the meninges ...
I would buy one without hesitation if mine let me go
because the price / quality ratio is excellent!
Olivier ROS's review
So in total has two cameras instead of one and the price of 2 is Superior to dbx.
If I invite myself on this forum is that I want a range of input device with all its functions and would be consistent with SIA SMAART LIVE !!!
At the moment I think a does not exist?
