digital EQ is (often) free and more versatile.

I have the one of best digital eq's available.  I have my reasons for wanting an external one which is beside the point.

The behringer is analog and you're working with a digital input headamp. So you'd need an ADC to re-digitize the signal after it leaves the eq. I'd replace the headamp before I did that (or pick up an additional amp and use the audio-gd as a dac to feed the eq).

What kind of amp should I get that would work.  So if I have the two amps using one as a DAC then I can hookup the eq?

Hey bro, would this AMP work with the EQ, combined with my DAC?

Or Actually what about this unit all on it's own?

Yeah, if your set on using a hardware EQ between your DAC and your headamp, then it's just a matter of making sure your amp will accept analog ins, since the behringer isn't a digi-out. On the bright side, it does both balanced XLR and some form of 1/4" (I can't tell from the pics if it's a balanced TRS or just tip/sleeve). There isn't a need to digi-in on the amp if you don't want to pay for it since you still have the first audio-gd you posted as a head-amp if you want to take the EQ out of the chain temporarily (or connect some other piece of gear analog only into your downstream amp). Having two DAC-functional units doesn't get you much for the extra cash.
