While I am intrigued by the Ultimate Preamplifier, at least for me, some of the use-cases for it are unclear.
For example - what is the easiest way to create a crossover using the UP? I know DEQX has a simple process that is using a mic and does its magic automatically.
How easy is it to create a correct, good sounding crossover? I am looking to replace my NHT XDA amp with the Ultimate Preamp + multi-channel amp.

Well - nothing like reading the manual  ;D
The manual directs you to download sample 2,3 or 4 way crossover templates from the download section. In other words, it is next to trivial to implement a xover with Audio Weaver + Ultimate Preamp.

Most people will use the available templates from our downloads page https://analog-precision.com/downloads/  and modify them for their own use case.

DEQX is truly a lightweight DSP platform compared to the UP whiuch uses a 4th generation SHARC DSP chip. By comparison DEQX uses a first generation SHARC DSP from Analog Devices and needs two of them just to process at 96kHz ! Their hardware design hasn't changed in decades and is hamstrung by legacy code. See here for a direct comparison with the UP https://analog-precision.com/home/pcg/
