Cassette decks, of course, are obsolete. I still have my Stereo Graphic Equalizer which the Cassette deck was run thru on its way to the amplifier.

Can I plug my CD player thru the Equalizer on its way to the amplifier to do its magic?

Actually the best way to hook up an EQ, is to run it through the tape monitor. This way you can switch it in and out of the system to see what the difference in sound.

IMHO, every EQ I have ever heard, degrades the sound way more that it helps.

On the chart above, just replace the "tape play" that shows the CD hooked up to it, with the CD/AUX input.

Modern in-room EQ programs are a different animal and can be very useful but graphic equalizers are zee pits. A short signal path is always the best way to go.

If you can ever get your hands on a DBX 20/20 equalizer/analyzer, grab it... it has settings that you can set and save for every taste.... had a hell of a lot of fun with mine...!!!!
And to answer your question, they can help, especially if you need a special area of frequency you find lacking... forget the naysayers and have some fun....
