I am beginning to look into updating my rig, and one of the things that has bugged me about the internal audio is the lack of any global equalization options. (Thanks for dumbing down the drivers realtek smile.gif ) Since I am not doing any kind of audio production I want to have everything tuned to my tastes in one central location.

Looking around though it seems as though software equalization is not as common as I would have expected. Currently I am driving a set of KSC-75's and a Pioneer SX-626 hooked to two Technics SB-L72's for gaming music listening. I would like to stay in the <$200 range. I had kind of wanted something like a ESI Audio Juli@ but I would also Like to avoid buying extra hardware.

If anyone has any opinion I would be happy to hear it.


In addition if I am better off with an external stereo EQ, would I be able to hook a multi-channel headphone amp like the Behringer HA400 to it and feed to the stereo and headphones or would this be a bad idea. (I plan on buying one eventually anyway, just want somebody to say this is a horrible idea if it is before I kill something)

Sorry to drag up the dead... but I was just looking into this as well and didn't see it answered in the responses. Coupe of questions: 1. Have people found that SW equalization is adequate? 2. Do the Behringer products perform accurately? I've seen good comments from various sources, and the prices certainly seem reasonable.

Oops... I'm bad at math... 3. Any favorite methods to use an equalizer? Do folks like to just listen to music and tune to their preference or listen to pink noise and try to 'flatten it out'?
