Have a DEQX PDC-2.6P and enjoy it very much, although still don't have it performing up to capability - that's more testament to the very high ceiling of performance, and the difficulty in getting good measurements to achieve that rather than anything else. That said, if I were to spill coffee on it, I'd probably look at the new miniDSP 4 x 10HD, which seems to accomplish much of the same utility sans the linear-phase (ie: perfect) speaker (and room) correction. Was recently released, and at a reasonable $500 price point: http://www.minidsp.com/products/mini...inidsp-4x10-hd

Just my $0.02. The products are certainly aimed at different market segments, but perhaps for the weekend DIYer, the miniDSP would prove more appropriate.
