I'm looking to upgrade my DSP, currently using an ultradrive.

I need something with 2 in and 6 out, with the option of a 5-way mono setup.

Budget £200-300 ideally

Purchasing a Driverack to replace a ultradrive in my opinion would be downgrading.

Heard good things about these DB-Mark units People seem to be using.

I've upgraded from Ultradrives to the DB Mark, and while the UI isn't as good, everything else is better.

I quite liked the idea of the Auto EQ/Setup wizard functions with the RTA mic, although I have no reference for how reliable this feature actually is. Do you know of any other units which have this capability?

I have never heard an auto set up worthy of its name.

Use common sense and as a last resort your ears.

As has been mentioned many times on this forum the DCX is a hard to beat until you get to XTA and even then the additional flexibility of the DCX often comes in handy.

The DB Marks sound noticeably better that the DCX in an a/b test.  Cleaner and clearer.

Maybe, but they need to considerably upgrade the GUI and the way the unit connects to a PC.
For DCX you dont need a PC at all ever.

If you are in a market for a really good DSP with IIR, FIR, DYN EQ, Networking... that is not XTA money but still made in Germany, let me know.
Same units in a module form are used in the Lacoustics amps.

Im on it Marjan ;)  I dont have any issues connecting the DB Marks / Neptunes, i just plug in the USB and click connect, the latest ones have network built in as well.   I agree the GUI is painful to use but thats the same on pretty much all DSPs, i always use the software.  Yes the DCX is easier but try listening to it A/B vs a good one, there no maybe about it, even the Chinese units i tested sound better the DCX.

Full spec will be up on the site within a week or so.
In short, 4in 8out, IIR, FIR, DYNEQ, peak and rms limiter, networking, dante as additional option.
