Behringer DEQ2496 Ultracurve Pro Digital EQ/RTA
Am I correct in saying this will be better "more options and better sound quality" than the Audio Source EQ sold here at P.E.?
I will be using this with my home stereo as it needs a little adjusting in my opinion. Receiver-Yamaha RxV-995, Amp-Yamaha Mx-D1 digital 500 wpc., Speakers- Polk Audio SRS SDA 2.3's with Dick Sequerra line source tweeter array's added on top of the SDA's. I will be getting a blue-ray player later on, for now just have digital cable and DVD's and CD's and MP3's for music. Is this the better choice for me? I am very good with complicated electronics usually. Thanks for the help!
The AudioSource EQ to which you refer is designed specifically for home audio applications, concentrating on simplicity of operation and overall sound quality. Behringer products are designed for the professional audio industry, so it is quite a bit more complex, and would give the user more features, options, and ultimately, a greater level of control over the sound. Typically (but not always), home audio products have lower distortion and noise, where pro audio equipment is a bit more forgiving in those areas, as a trade-off for ruggedness and other features required to survive the rigors of professional use. Also, home audio and pro audio have differences in the voltage that is used to pass your signal along from one piece of equipment to another. If you do decide to add pro audio equipment to your home audio setup, you may want to invest in a signal converter, such as the one I've linked below, or give us a call to discuss your options at 1-800-338-0531.

Can the internal DAC be bypassed for completely digital processing?
I have a very nice DAC for my stereo but I would like to do some digital equalization if possible without using the Behringer DAC.
yes....the DEQ2496 is equipped with both AES/EBU and TOS link optical SPIDF ins and outs, and also a BNC wordclock input.

Subwoofer EQ Use
To what extent would this be a good subwoofer (only) EQ?For example, how would this compare vs the Feedback Destroyer in that type of application?
This will have all the same frequency bands as a feedback destroyer for subwoofer EQ purposes. In my opinion it will work fine but be complete overkill if that is the only intended use for it.
