Hey guys, just thought I'd ask the question.
I use plenty of hardware EQ (Mostly Klark-Teknik) for live application.
However, I'm not too sure what the actual scientific or physical difference is, between a "good" or "expensive" EQ, compared to a cheap one.
For instance, this Sherwood unit is currently very cheap on ebay:
What exactly should I look for, in a "good" standalone hardware EQ (for headphones)? And yes, I do already use a software EQ (made by Xnor, funnily enough) for my music. But I would prefer a hardware EQ, that goes over my ENTIRE collection of source units (Turntable, PC, MD, etc) instead of just one software EQ for one application.
