sorry if this is a stupid question, but i only saw the Peavey VSX 48 mentioned once in this thread..  is there a reason that you're not considering this DSP??

If that is aimed at me - I can only consider the equipment I can get my hands on. So far, I have never seen a Peavey VSX in any store.

The one Driverack 260 that is around here can't be rented. I would consider it only because I have used the DRPA, and have some idea what dBx is like.

Also - my memory may be incorrect on this - but does the Peavey VSX line have much in the way of delay? I am running a satelite speaker up to 50' away at times, and need far more delay than the DRPA or (from what I have read in the specs) the VSX 2x series offer. The DCX2496 offers a lot of delay on each output, and I believe the 260 does as well.

Finally, the Peavey PC interface is MIA. That is almost a show stopper for me. If Behringer can offer one, I have trouble understanding why companies like Peavey do not.

About the VSX48, they don't really exist yet...

I am told maybe this month but with a lesser feature set than was advertised. I had one on order for a while with no date for delivery so cancelled it.

Don't know about the others, but the Driverack 260 (that I got from Rob - thanks!) is a very nice piece of kit!  

My only real complaint right now is I wish the power switch was on the front panel.

When the Peavey 4 x 8 becomes available, I'm going to take a hard look at it for monitor duty.  Looking for something with 4 channels and cannot see affording a 480 or 4800 for monitors.

Right now I plan to get a Sabine 3x6 since the VSX48 isn't available for now. I agree with Steve that it may do good duty in the monitor rack later on though. I only run my wedges in passive now since they do fine that way.

Steve, you will be happy the switch is on the back when some twit starts playing with the front of the amp rack Smile

For your information, I didn't find the DCX2496(which I won't be using anymore) quiet at all. there's an annoying noise with the amps wide open, turning them down 7dB and raising the limiter thresholds accordingly solved the problem though.

It depends of course on your amps gain and what you're driving with the amp. If you got a 38dB gain amp and driving HF horns, you WILL hear noise, that's out of question. With 32dB gain or less and standard passive crossovered direct radiating boxes you won't hear annoying noise (usually).

Did you get your VSX 48? - Dealers keep telling me - "discontinued" - and that it will not be produced - although Peavey says something different.

I need 4 bi-amap monitor mixes and need to go DSP in place of the traditional X-overs I have.

Does anybody have any experience with the Behringer DEQ 2496?  Is it comparable to these?  I know it doesn't offer a crossover or multi-outs like a "speaker management" processor, but are they decent?
