As for the anti-EQ sentiments from all999 . . I don't really get that. I EQ, Time align, DSP, use gain, and generally screw with everything I own. These are all tools of the trade, whether you are a consumer, audio engineer, or performer. used properly, they only improve my enjoyment.
I mean seriously, would you yank the volume knob off your stereo? Because that's a tool also.
well i once had a custommade high end amp (forgot the name..am looking for pics at this moment..lozl) which didnt have anything else on it then 1 volume knob, only one rca pair input, no on-off switch and one pair of speaker connections, it had real piano lack on the front and wighted a TON!
...and it sounded the best i ever had as far i can remember!..
pityful when i started studying i lost interest in audio and got more into cars (tuning and extreme car audio) and women and got myself a mp3 player from philips with separate equaliser (thats was unique in those days..a separate equaliser box...so i sold it... stupid ass i was!
but i do know is that every equaliser (or any other extra sound changing product) is an extra component into the string of audio and inserts noise into ur rig...and ur standard components already inserts interference into the sound (caps/volume, connectors etc)...
for me, i want the most basic stuff..and so i try to get the most balanced amp/headphone etc. i can get ...and so dont need to change anything then the sound they give..
for me...pure sound is the way to go.... if i dont get the sound i want..i sell the amp or headphone and get the right one,. but thats my take on this...
