As can be seen in my recent Model 19 post, I have discovered that EQ is indispensable with this system. However, I don’t think I am making the most effective use of EQ with my 25 year old parametric equalizer and only my ears to guide me. I would like to try something more effective, like an RTA and more comprehensive equalization.
After doing a bit of research, I’m leaning towards a PC solution. I was thinking of adding a pro USB sound card to my laptop, getting a calibration mic and mic preamp, and then purchasing RTA and EQ software. I like the idea of being able to sit at my normal listening position, with the PC on my lap making fine adjustments to system EQ. Does anyone have any recommendations on USB soundcards, mics, and software that could help me reach my objectives?
