behringer dcx HOOKUP

I am contemplating buying a DCX2496 for my crossover duties to replace my cheesy sounding(compared to a Bryston10B) Rane crossover.
I have 2 issuse regarding inputs and outputs..

It seems most of the mods circumvent the analog inputs and use only digital.

I will be running a CODA preamp (STEREO) into the DCX so I can select between tuners, TV, and other inputs.

I would like to also run my Marantz63se into the digital input and be able to select sources between the digital input or the dual analog inputs.. It seems the A input must be used for digital and A+B for dual analog. That leaves out switching between 2 channel analog and single digital input. or can the B+C be configured for analog inputs

Obviously I will keep that CODA at fill boogie and do some sort of variable output mod.

Basically I need a cheap DEQX..LOL

Can anyone enlighten me on making the analog input section transparent??

Thanks

Hi,

I have developed a mod for the DCX that improves the analog outputs and adds remote control for volume, balance and relative level between low, mid and hi freq bands. It also improves the analog input. It's documented here .

My mod provides separate analog and digital inputs that can connected at the same time, to be selected at the DCX input menu, without the relays that are in the original unit.

There is an additional, very nice worthwhile improvement of the digital input and clocking for low jitter done by Frank Oettle as well, documented in another thread.

I reviewed the manual online and did not catch that about the input sampling freq!..

so it's going to run a 44.1 through the whole chain including filters construction?

I checked the manual about the C input but it does not "show" it to be used in conjunction with B input for stereo connections.

I am getting Jan's mods which should take care of the majority of the issues and construction somebody's linear power supply for it.

that still leaves the digital input problem.. how does everyone else get around it using cd players??

I assume if I do not use digital input everything clocks at 96?

oh yea any suggestions for some good replacement ribbon cables?

Yes.

Correct.

I use a SRC2496 sample rate converter between the CD player and the DEQ2496. It definitely makes a difference.
