Exactly. One can't say an EQ "isn't Hi-Fi" ex cathedra. If you don't like it - don't use it. It doesn't matter in the digital domain - if there's an EQ and you don't use it, you're fine, you get the same output as if there was no EQ scripted into the firmware at all. But if you want/need an EQ for your phones/music/mood, it sure comes in handy to have one. I just have to mention open source and the free, open, very usable Rockbox for the third time.
Another example - I'm "handicapped" as far as my ears are concerned, due to mid-ear infections and tinnitus when I was a kid. I NEED pan/balance for my ears since one is quieter than the other (but both are fine with ~18kHz response) - so just because maybe a pan/balance control wouldn't be "audiophile" as well, I should not be able to use the player?
