I currently use foobar2000 to play music on my PC. 95% of the time I listen to 24/96 and 24/192 recordings.
I have a doubt about whether to use equalizer or not. Somehow the music sounds shallow when I don't use it. It sounds like listening to cheap portable radio, if you know what I mean. But, when I apply the EQ to adjust the sound, I can't stop thinking I've ruined the sound, that is, created a virtual sound that has nothing to do with the original sound.
What should I do? When do you recommend using EQ in the first place?
Maybe I'm just more used to the EQ-affected sound?
Thank you for your advice.
