Affordable Preamp or EQ needed.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Can anyone recommend  Preamp or Equalizer for around $300.00 that can boost bass to my powered monitors when needed?

You can't use software EQ? Besides, you might be able to get away with using volume control on your computer. The best pre is no pre after all.

 

Have heard good things about the bottlehead quickie. You could also get a passive attenuator from schiit. Both very cheap options.

Thanks David but it's for my TV/Stereo setup.

I don't have any specific recommendations, but if you are willing to go vintage you could probably find a hardware EQ for way less than 300 dollars.

I think I'll do just that.

Well, HW EQ is theoretically inferior to software EQ due to phase distortion and stuff.

He can't use a software EQ because he's not using a computer for a source.

Can't he do so with a 'box with EQ' thingy?
