Equalizer in a Hi Fi system

Just curious to hear everyone’s opinions on using an equalizer in a high end hi fi system. Was at work tonight and killing time and came across a Schitt Loki max $1500 Equalizer with some very good reviews. What are some of the pros / Benefits and cons in using one. Just curious. BTW. I’m talking about a top of the line. Hi end equalizer. Mostly to calm some high frequencies and some bad recordings.

Thanks @tattooedtrackman , alas I am not a professional. Just an avid listener and passionate tweaking audiophile. I may know a lot about how they sound in my home, but @mirolab is the professional with his own studio. He’s heard more than me. Both analog and digital. And @mijostyn is pretty well dialed in on digital post playback. I’m just a guy who’s lucky enough to have found a very special piece of hardware in the Charter Oak. It’s sound quality surpasses some peers costing twice as much. 
But yes, I want to hear and learn all. And I will make it a point to hear your MQ112, @mijostyn ’s DEQX, and last but not least the BACCH SP. 

@tattooedtrackman , I am stoked that you love your MQ112. Don’t be afraid to laud its praises repeatedly here. Because there’s a strong tide we’re swimming against of all digital EQ lovers who have never or not recently tried a high end analog piece and they simply don’t know what beautiful sound they are missing. The more of us who speak out, the more will try. 

Pretty much every track we ever listen to gets run through something like this dude before we ever hear it.  So why would a little EQ in the home listening room upset any purists?

I don't get it.

mixer and eq
schiit mega ;)


@ltmandella   I felt the same way as all the other pursuits, because I only wanted to hear the very best sound that my equipment were producing. And I thought that any other source adding to it would degrade the performance of my gear. JMO.
