Default New DCX ADC

I just opened up a new DCX2496 and found it has a new ADC. The AKM AK5393 is now gone and replaced with a Cirrus Logic CS5381. Yay, +3dB S/N and 5dB lower distortion! This chip boasts -120dB S/N and -110THD.

This is a standard DCX2496 with date code 1305. So in fact the Behringer website is incorrect. They say the LE version uses Cirrus Logic and the standard one uses AKM, which it used to. But this one I have uses Cirrus A/D and AKM D/A. A shame they didn't drop in the AK5394 A/D but there ya go.

I hadn't seen the LE version before, is the only difference not having a digital input and no 'C' analog input? Can't see how that reduces the price so much, but can't complain!
