But analog EQ means adding noise and distortion......
Is this the same noise and distortion that tubes add?
Honest question here, not being sarcastic,,,,,,,,,for a change.
Only if tubes are used in the gain stage but that does not sound very practical to me. It is possible but I don't know of a tube based equalizer. Being that someone made a tube based active crossover I would be surprised if someone out there has not done it. Because they can.
