And don't forget, the Behringer has a serial port and software to control settings via PC.
for those of you that are interested in an alternative to the h701 this may be up your alley:
with this mod:
just thought id throw it out there. btw, the behringer has a spdif input. the chassis looks big but i'm sure you could hack it apart and condense it. hell, talk to veritas_forge and he could probably make a custom case for it
if i would have know about this about 6 months ago i would have jumped on this combo to test out in my system :-( I would have been a perfect candidate :-) pc, balanced inputs on my amps and fully active! damn it!
how small do you think you could get that behringer if you took it out of the case? do you have a top down of all the components inside the case? do you need to have the front panel connected to have the unit work? (wont need that since i'll have a pc)
it has a digital in... but it's an xlr connection... would this work with a digital line out from a soundblaster?
