Hi I have a few channels of this board. Basically the stock EQ has a very high Q (narrow band width). So it could be interpretted as un-musical compared to some other EQs. Having said that, of the four channels I have, I've left two stock and two with the mod kit. Why? Because narrower Q values are better for surgical EQ repair of signals.
I haven't had these for long and the pre-s are excellent, but I haven't given the EQs a run for their money yet. So.. I can't comment further.
I can send you EQ curve results though if you'd like. PM me.
