Dunno, believe what you want to, but I don't think digital EQ will make music less transparent...
I believe that it's possible, but I have no idea if it does or not. I usually use a flat EQ with headphones, but I definitely do a custom EQ for all my speakers.
My point isn't one of transparency, it's just that the original PCM bit stream is changed. The 0's and 1's that are on the CD and manipulated by a digital equalizer. For better or for worse is up to the individual listener. It's just been my impression from lurking here that Head-Fi doesn't like losing bits, so I tried to follow suit. Ultimately, I enjoy using an EQ, so I've started using one again. It sounds better to me, so I'm going to do it.
