While investigating the benefits of buying a soundbar for my TV, I was advised to instead purchase a good pair of speakers and an amplifier. So I did.
I am now getting, I think, just what the sound engineers intended. However, to my ears this means too much bass, too much treble, and not enough mid-range. Consequently, especially for movies and TV drama, hearing what people say is even more difficult than it was before. So I am now investigating Graphic Equalizers...
I have three questions:
1) Is there anything I need to check to ensure maximum compatibility of an equalizer with my amp (and speakers)?
2) Input to my amp from my TV is via optical (Toslink) cable. The equalizers I have looked at during web searches seem to require RCA input*. So I'm guessing I need an optical to RCA converter...? If so, again is there anything I need to check for compatibility?
3) Will an equalizer introduce noticeable lag, ie poor lip-sync with the TV picture?
Total noob, so any other ideas gratefully received.
