Ultra High Performance Modification Rebuilds
& New Modified Units for Emerald Physics CS-3
Plus EP3 full external crossover rebuild!
We Ship
World Wide!
Overview:

The Behringer DCX2496 is the audio signal processor required when it comes to line level
crossover applications and some light system room equalization. The major benefit of this
processor is that is does all the processing in the digital domain. The downfalls of this
commercial style piece is the lack of high quality parts used within, plenty of bottlenecked
audio circuits in and around the A/D and D/A chipsets.
THERE IS NO SOUND IN THE
STOCK BEHRINGER, ITS VERY CHALKY SOUNDING.
We have designed some really
great modification rebuild improvement packages to skyrocket the performance of the
DCX2496. We feel after our rebuilds that this is the
best sounding processor available
at any price
, easily outperforming other processors that cost over $5000 stock, we also
modify those other processors as well....We have modified over 100 of these units now into
2016 and if your looking for the most cleanest and transparent sounding DCX2496 in the
world.... keep on reading.

2 different mod rebuild packages based on your budget
These are designed for
biamp or triamp applications.
Note: if you desire a different configuration let us know.

"Basic" Modification Rebuild package-
This is carefully engineered full unit modification rebuild package was designed for the
person on a
modest budget. The entire OEM DCX Input/Output circuit board is completely
removed and analog inputs A+B and Outputs 1-4 are "signal transformer coupled" via high
performance signal coupling transformers to the input and then the outputs of the 2496
circuit board. This is the most optimal pathway for the input and output circuits for the best
sound. Transformer coupling also isolates noise, since both the inputs and outputs are
passive coupled, this will effectively increase the S/N ratio as the transformer block high
frequency noise being generated by your other equipment connecting to the DCX.
This
modification rebuild removes the signal parts such as opamps, signal coupling
capacitors, signal relays and such for the best sound.
The Power Supply is modified
with superior parts over stock such as high speed diodes, Rubycon Low impedance
capacitors, and other tweaks. The 2496 DSP board is modified with capacitor replacements,
DEXA UWB ultra high performance voltage regulators to power all circuits, and the stock
2496 clocking is replaced with the DEXA Neutrino clock to reduce jitter dramatically.  The
difference between a stock DCX and this mod package is
night and day. Complete
"transformation" across the board.  The inputs and outputs can be either XLR (true
balanced) or RCA all through, just let us know which you prefer on ordering.  For stereo
subs, We can also add audio signal coupling transformers for ch3 and ch4 outputs for $250
extra, If your interested in this please let us know.
FYI- This mod also fixes the
Overheating problem seen with some stock units
as there is going to be open
ventilation holes on the rear so there is no more chance for overheating as the heat will
have place to escape.

"Statement" Modification Rebuild Package-
This is our "cost no limits" highest performance modification rebuild package for the most
demanding audio customers in the world. This is our most popular mod package (we have
built over 100 units), This is package is based off of the basic mod rebuild package above,
but instead uses the
highest performance diodes, clocks and statement transformers
and other mods/tweaks. This package will give your system
world reference sound, we
have built many of these over the past 9 years and the owners are in audio heaven.  Like in
the less expensive "Basic" mod package, the A+B inputs and 1-2 outputs (outputs ch3-4 are
$400 extra for stereo subwoofers) are completely transformer coupled with thebest sounding
premium grade signal coupling transformers we offer for the absolute bestsound. Top
Grade, No limits, completely transparent.  There is more in-depth power supply mods done
in this package. All of the mod parts and circuit board is treated with
C37vibration resonance
lacquer. The DSP board is modified the same also as basic mod package, however we
install the
DEXA Neutron Star Flagship Reference Clock for the 2496 processing circuit
for the lowest amount of noise and jitter on the reference clock signal possible. This clock
TOTALLY WAKES UP the DCX2496.   If you want the best sounding DCX2496 in the world
to revolutionize the sound of  your system you need to takeadvantage of this State of the Art
performance package that is found no where else! The inputs and outputs can be either
XLR (true balanced) or RCA all through, just let us know which you prefer.


Optional Ultra High Performance Mod Upgrades -
(to add into either mod package above to elevate audio performance even further)

~AKM chipset upgrades (ADAC and DAC)
Replaces the stock AK5393 ADAC chipset to the upgraded AK5394 chipset. Replaces all 3
of the AK4393 stock OEM dac chips to the AKM AK4396 flagship dac chips. We noticed
more presence, more resolution more speed and thus more sound with these swaps, about
a 30% performance improvement. The new ADAC and DAC are then covered in RFI
shielding tape.


~Bybee Music Rails DC power conditioning modules upgrade
Bybee Music Rails are patented DC power conditioning circuits that are installed at the tail
end of the modified DC power supply to the DSP/A-D/D-A and critical clocking. These are
designed to reduce noise on these voltage rails up to 45db. This is about a 4x noise drop!
These are installed for the ADAC/DAC voltages, DSP processing voltages and for the Dexa
Neutrino or Neutron star clock upgrades.

~ASi OTM Low Impedance external battery supply upgrade-
This is the mod upgrade that you need if your looking for the best possible sound
from the DCX2496.  This is a total gamechanger and the largest improving mod
option upgrade we can provide (far surpasses AC power conditioning/correction).
The critical audio processing circuitry (and clocking) is run off of this external low
impedance battery supply for maximum audio performance.  The Power supply
sections of the DCX2496 to these audio/clock circuits is bypassed (however the
other parts of the DCX power supplies are used for other purposes that are not
related to audio, so don't be confused, this supply runs the critical audio
processingand clocks (the most important parts), not the entire processor as its
notnecessary). A Multi-pin connector is installed on the rear of the DCX2496 to
accommodate the battery supply voltages via a 30 inch shielded custom made
umbilical cord.  To turn on the DCX2496, you simply connect and turn on the OTM
supply first, then turn on DCX and your good to go! No worries or issues! The OTM
has built-in autocharging, included is a external digital timer and power cord. The
digital timer is preset to recharge the supply every night (or your time preference)
sothe supply is always topped off and will never run down or out.  No maintenance!
Set and forget! The digital timer acts like a high voltage switch, so there is never
anyAC inside of the battery supply while you are listening for the quietest and best
audio performance. The OTM enclosure is made from EMI/RFi reduction
aluminum,the color choices are Black or Gold. The enclosure size is 12"W x 12"L x
5"H so this supply can mount below in a rack shelf or side by side to the unit if on
atable.  The supply is used correctly should last easily 8-10+ years. We have built
hundreds of custom OTM supplies starting since 2006 and are still running today
into2016 on the original batteries.  
Customer Feedback:
Your DCX mods are
incredible! I am now
really hearing
the music out of my
CS2's unlike before!
Everyone who owns
the DCX2496 needs
to have these mods
done to hear all the
music as you are
only hearing a
fraction of your
treasured collection.

DCX2496 CS3 "Basic" Modification Rebuild Descriptions
Power Supply Modifications-

We replace critical capacitors and diodes in the SMPS power supply and DSP Board with
Ultra Low Impedance
Rubycon and Panasonic capacitors and ultra fast diode
rectifiers
. The Rubycon/Panasonic caps are very  fast reacting capacitors with ultra low
impedance and high ripple current qualities.  We replace
2 critical +5vdc voltage regulators
that power the critical DSP circuits and the AKM DAC chips with the
DEXA UWB ultra low
noise voltage regulators for a major performance improvement to those respective circuits
as the noise is now far less which means greater sonics.

DEXA Neutrino Clock Upgrade-

We add a reference quality jitter reduction circuit called DEXA Neutrino clock to replace the
stock 24/96khz circuit reference crystal oscillator for a drastic reduction in jitter in the digital
circuits. Expanded soundstaging, additional low level detail, focus and resolution are
examples of this major mod component. The DEXA clock has a very unique feature,
unlike other clocks on the market, as the clock signal is isolated from the power supply
ground, so you get no ground loop, and also you get no Mains Noise injection.  

EMI/RFI Shielding: This is critical! Other pieces of gear in our house (cablebox,
computer, router, etc) internal clock resonators spurn off spurious emissions
pickedup inside, but after shielding the unit the signals are not present anymore.
Local RF transmitting towers (AM or FM) depending on where you live can also
interfere. Careful shielding of the chassis/lid, power supplies, clocks, wiring is a must
for best performance.  (essentially creating a pseudo faraday cage to block RFI
coming into the processor)

Complete Input/Output Board removal, Transformer coupled Input and output stage
The entire stock DCX input/ouput board is completely removed and the analog inputs A+B
and Outputs 1-4 are "transformer coupled" via high performance signal coupling
transformers to the input and then the outputs of the 2496 circuit board. ASi custom silver
wire is used for all connections. This is the most optimal way that we know to do the input
and output circuits for the best sound. Transformer coupling also isolates noise, since both
the inputs and outputs are passive coupled, this will effectively increase the S/N ratio as the
transformer block high frequency noise being generated by your other equipment
connecting to the DCX. This modification rebuild removes the signal parts such as opamps,
signal coupling capacitors, signal relays and such for the best sound possible.

The Input and output is
TRUE BALANCED via XLR! We can also install RCA's instead of the
XLR's for all channels, please let us know which you would like when ordering.

Stop the compromises!
If your DCX isn't transformer coupled, your DCX hasn't been "transformed"!

Power Supply Modifications-

We replace critical capacitors and diodes in the SMPS power supply and DSP Board with
Ultra Low Impedance
Rubycon and Panasonic capacitors. The diode bridge is replaced
with the
ASi No Limits Diode bridge which is made up of cryo treated ultra super fast
smddiodes. The Rubycon/Panasonic caps are very  fast reacting capacitors with ultra low
impedance and high ripple current qualities.  We replace
2 critical +5vdc voltage regulators
that power the critical DSP circuits and the AKM DAC chips with the
DEXA UWB ultra low
noise regulators for a major performance improvement to those respective circuits.

DEXA Neutron Star Flagship Clock Upgrade-

We add a world class flagship quality jitter reduction circuit called the Neutron Star to
replace the stock 24/96khz circuit reference crystal oscillator for a seriously drastic
reduction in jitter in the digital circuits. Expanded soundstaging, additional low level detail,
focus and resolution are examples of this major mod component. The DEXA Neutron Star
clock has a very unique feature, unlike other clocks on the market, as the clock signal is
isolated from the power supply ground, so you get no ground loop, and also you get no
Mains Noise injection.   If you want the best, you have to get the Neutron Star!!!

EMI/RFI Shielding: This is critical! Other pieces of gear in our house (cablebox,
computer, router, etc) internal clock resonators spurn off spurious emissions that
getpicked up inside, but after shielding the unit the signals are not present anymore.
Local RF transmitting towers (AM or FM) depending on where you live can also
interfere. Careful shielding of the chassis/lid, power supplies, clocks and wiring is
amust for best performance.  (essentially creating a pseudo faraday cage to
blockRFI from coming into the processor)

Complete Input/Output Board removal, Transformer coupled Input and output stage
The entire stock DCX input/ouput board is completely removed and the analog inputs A+B

the best performance possible. This modification rebuild removes the signal parts such as
opamps, signal coupling capacitors, signal relays and such for the best sound possible.

The Input and output is

EMERALD PHYSICS CS3 SPEAKER
DRIVER UPGRADE-
MUST DO!!!!

We can assist you with ordering the replacement speaker driver upgrade for the EP CS3
system. The stock speakers are made by eminence and they sound
TERRIBLE. THERE IS NO
HIGHS, IF YOU TAKE SPEAKER APART AND LOOK AT THE HIGH FREQ TRANSDUCER
MATERIAL IT IS VERY CHEAP AND CANNOT MAKE ANY GOOD SOUND
. The best
replacement drivers are the Beyma 12" coaxial drivers which cost about $1100 FOR 2 and
these are the smoothest sounding speakers you will ever hear with max resolution (2"
Titanium/polyester tweeter). These need to be modified (remove stock binding posts) and you
need to hard solder the silver wiring directly to the speaker for max performnace. We have
rebuilt a hand full of in systems in person and once they are done
THEY SOUND ABSOLUTE
WORLD CLASS AND BLOW AWAY ANYTHING ELSE THAT EMERALD PHYSICS MAKES OR
ANYTHING ELSE YOU OUT THERE YOU WISH YOU COULD AFFORD
. We have physically
installed these at customers houses, one at a time, and its a night and day improvement. If you
are reading this and listening to Eminence drivers,
YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR SPEAKER
DRIVERS OUT TO THE BEYMAS OR YOUR LISTENING TO PLASTIC AND SHRILLY
SOUNDING MUSIC!! IT MAKES THAT MUCH OF A IMPROVEMENT. LOOK AT THE PICS
BELOW!
