RE: Line levels ( 0.5VMax on Behringer and other pro gear, will they be noisy?y?

I built crossovers based on the X1 and the X9, 2-ways and 3-ways. They hiss and there was not much you could do about it. They also tended to sound like op-amps even when plugging in some rather expensive Analogue Devices chips.

The pro stuff are basically tools to solve a problem, not necessarily intended to be the last word in resolution. However, for $300 (here in the U.S.) it would be worth a try to see how it goes, it might be kind of fun.

I have a tube based 3rd order crossover board that I have still sitting in a file folder based on a S. Bench design. I will have to dig it out to see what it sounds like. Additionally, Pete's board looks really interesting (See Link).
