I am in the video production business and I occasionally need to adjust audio EQ on the fly. In the past I have been able to use a "Tape Monitor" loop to hook up my EQ. Well my under appreciated HK is about to bite the dust and I am looking strongly at the Pioneer VSX-84TXSi. Pioneer says that there is no way to hook up an external EQ. What I hate about the new receivers is even simple bass and treble tweaking is now done with menus. But to provide serious tweaking of a signal it seems like mfgs. don't want us to do that anymore. Am I missing the boat somewhere? Does this units 9 band internal EQ work easily enough and is it accurate. I know I could spend a lot more and buy separate components to tweak the audio but my budget is $1,500 and it seems like the VSX-84TXSi has everything I need except the ability to further tweak my audio.
Thanks for your help!
