SRC2496 - 2-Channel AD DA Converter and Format Converter, Behringer

The ULTRAMATCH PRO SRC2496 is the successor of the renowned SRC2000, and enables you to transfer digital audio signals between devices with different sample rates, formats or interfaces and remove dropouts or jitter from digital media. Simultaneously operable outputs offer splitter functionality. The 24-bit/96 kHz compatible SRC2496 now offers high-quality 24-bit/96 kHz A/D and D/A conversion. The ULTRAMATCH PRO SRC2496 is as such perfectly suitable for studio work. Format conversion between AES/EBU and S/PDIF (coaxial or optical) is provided for, with high-quality signal output with 16-, 20- or 24-bit resolution.
Universal sample rate synchronization is done via wordclock or digital input. XLR, RCA and optical outputs are simultaneously operational with separately selectable inputs, turning this unit into a digital patch bay.


  • High-end 24-bit/96 kHz A/D and D/A converters for ultimate signal purity
  • Converts any sample rate between 31 and 100 kHz into 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2 or 96 kHz sample rates
  • Flexible format conversion between AES/EBU and S/PDIF (coaxial or optical)
  • Ultra high-quality signal output with 16-, 20- or 24-bit resolution
  • Universal sample rate synchronization via wordclock or digital input
  • Allows parallel A/D and D/A conversion at identical sample rate
  • Precise metering for input/output signal as well as powerful headphone monitoring
  • Dithering automatically adapted for word length conversion
  • Allows direct manipulation of emphasis bits and other significant, digitally transmitted information in order to record virtually any audio signal
  • High-precision quartz clock generator removes jitter and corrects off-tune, incorrect sample rates
  • Extremely fast tracking supports varispeed applications
  • Self-adjusting anti-aliasing filter with exceptionally steep edge
  • Consumer devices (e.g. DAT recorders) can be synchronized with the studio clock
  • All three outputs (XLR, RCA, optical) simultaneously operational (splitter)
  • Inputs separately selectable (patchbay functionality)
  • All digital inputs/outputs balanced and galvanically isolated
  • All analog inputs/outputs servo-balanced
  • Conceived and designed by BEHRINGER Germany

Upsampler is UPTOWN! November 14, 2012
Reviewer: Jukebox Jim from Mt. Pleasant, SC United States  
This nifty gizmo not only mates incompatible digital I/O signals but also brings out the best in your DAC - big time, baby. Connecting the SRC2496 between your CD (or other digital source) and your outboard DAC and then upsampling the standard 44.1kHz CD clock rate to 96kHz (re-clocking via the SRC2496 "Internal" clock mode) effectively turbocharges the performance of your heretofore under-utilized DAC! The difference in audio resolution is like the difference between regular digital TV and HDTV, at least. The music has remarkably greater definition, mass, texture, sweetness, subtlety and punch. Try it! Don't be misled by the low Behringer prices which are even more competitive at Pro Audio Solutions, where the response time is as fast as the upsampler. The team shipped the hard-to-find SRC2496 within a few hours of my ordering it. Shazam! And you can actually reach them on the telly. I spoke to the the big cheese himself, CEO Warren White. As the Terminator put it, "I'll be back."
