external equalizers

I have that receiver. It does have a Tape Monitor you can use, but that will only EQ the two front channels. That's it. I have never seen a mainstream consumer AV receiver that supports EQ well because of the multiple channels. Also take into account the sound field modes and that they can really affect tonal balance too. So EQ on a home theater receiver is problematic at best. Now if you are turning all that off and just running in stereo and using the front channels, then it would work. But otherwise it's not happening.

external equalizers

With all the surround sound modes and internal equalizers/tone controls, I've had a Yamaha and Denon Surround receiver, most people have no need for external tone processing...You also have to consider an equalizer controls the tone of all channels...I know surround receivers send different signals to different speakers...No need to boost highs in the signal going to the sub etc...
