Strictly your opinion of course. There isn't an eq in sight at my local high end dealer. I imagine David Wilson would not recommend an eq for his new Alexandria XL speakers. I run a passive system, the exact opposite of what you're talking about. Keep the source as pure as possible, and don't apply gain until the amp to speaker connection. A different planet from yours perhaps. But to each his own. Glad you enjoy your sound!
David Wilson seems to use equalizers BTW:
