In my experience with Audiocontrol devices I can say that they make great active line converters and DSP, but all their bass "enhancement" circuits (Epicenter, AccuBass) suck in late/modern systems.
An LC6i (no AccuBass) would have worked right off the bat in your particular case, but it would have been overkill for this particular purpose (6-channel outputs vs 2-channel outputs).
