This is clearly an entry level question.
So I have found a fairly major hole in my Rotel RX-1052 multi-zone receiver. It has treble and bass tuning for the main output, but not for the zones (is this a major oversight by Rotel?). I have an auxillary zone running through an RMB 1066 amp, pushing 4 speakers in my living room. Everything sounds great when my TV is the source, but when I switch to Phono, it gets dull and bass heavy. I know the speakers can sound better b/c I've run them through the primary output with tuning capabilities. So I need an EQ, right?
A cursory search is not yeilding much info on this matter. In fact Rotel does not even make one (so much for component matching). What am I missing here? I remember in the 80's my dad and his ilk always had independent EQ?
