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)

Older Creative soundcards with the KX driver can do global EQ and a lot more.

The good thing is that those soundcards (SB Live, Audigy...) are very cheap. With some luck you can get one for free.
The bad thing is they're not that great in specs regarding sound quality. (Looking at RMAA tests for SB Live, at least. Might not be audible.)
