Behringer DEQ2496 Ultracurve Pro Digital EQ/RTA
I'd like to know if I can connect the DEQ2496 in the following manner, just in the digital domain. My equipment: CD Player, DEQ2496, Emotiva XDA-2 DAC, Amplifier. CD Player Toslink Out-->DEQ Toslink In-->DEQ AES/EBU Out-->Emotiva XDA-2 AES/EBU In-->Amp

The diagram in the manual shows the DEQ sitting in between the mixing board and the amps. Can this indeed sit between my preamp and amp with volume control at the pre? The post above mentioned this might not work do to varying input levels.
Yes this can be used between a preamp and amplifier with no problems.

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.

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.
The unit has two available digital outputs. One is AES/EBU , which is rare on home gear, and the other is Toslink. It appears that you can input either analog or digital audio, manipulate the signal, and then output either analog or digital. The manipulated signal is mirrored on the two digital outs. Only thing to watch out for is the sample rate output. It is selectable, your home DAC may not support all of its available outputs. In fact, your home DAC may output loud/frightening sounds if fed incompatible sample rates. Standard is 44.1kHz. Looks like a fun and capable unit.

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.
