I am looking to buy my first Graphic Equalizer. What are some trusted brands that made or make Graphic Equalizer? Companies that built equipment that can last a lifetime. Needs a little repair. If any repairs must be done. I will have to be able to complete them at home. Spare parts don’t cost more than the equalizer. Is there any features I should be looking for. I’m looking to add more bass and to hear the drums better (Rhythm Section). I’m not trying to spend a boatload of money. I don’t mind spending $100 if I could find a steel that will last me a long time. Any advice for first-time graphics equalizer buyers. What are some models that usually come up for a relatively cheap price but is very good first-time graphics equalizer? I don’t really care if it looks ugly or doesn’t match my system. As long as it gets the job done it doesn’t really matter me. I am assuming the more Frequency band the better the Equalizer. Is a Parametric Equalizers necessary for a Novice "Audiophile".
