Anyone use an equalizer? If so is it system wide or just for you're music?

Post a screenshot of it if you do. I'm interested in seeing how you guys have it set.

I haven't used an equalizer for over 2 decades...I was into the whole car bass scene when it began. Had a good time with it...I have a Sansui receiver and a pair of JBL L100 speakers from back in the day...

I do think I am going to be getting more in to audio pretty soon. I am not pleased with the audio of all the music and movies that I have been pirating Very Happy

Just remember that just about everything is digital nowadays. So, there isn't as much importance on just about anything.

Most equalizers are made for the car audio market. And, as such they are single or double DIN 12 volt components. Check out the different receivers and home theater receivers to see what EQ features they have. That is most likely your best route.

The other option is software. The software option could save you a good deal of money. But, it might not be as user friendly.

My laptop has an equalizer on that changes automatically depending on what audio output is active. It cuts the bass for the built-in speakers, it slightly boosts it for IEMs, it increases the gain for full sized headphones. (I use a different port for full sized headphones and IEMs)

Yeah I was talking software. For example I just use the equalizer in Realtek sound manager.
