It could probably done, though... I'm not sure of the cost/benefit of it, and you just have to convince Bill before. 😉 

Sorry...  

 
Thanks so much.  I'm 100% with you and Bill keeping the already super-clean audio chain unmolested as possible.  I guess until Apple free's up whatever API's wall off global EQ it may come down to a outbaord hardware solution.  I'd even live with some manner of intercepting the bluetooth stack with a EQ tweak if it were even possible.  Looks like the theory of going with flat reference monitors and EQing to my own ears audio deficiencies didn't work out well this time :(

One thing I may try is as much as I love your app, I seem to recall a mention that there's an app that allows Tunein Radio feeds to be Eq'd. (RadioEQ?).  Not sure if it's worth the hassle, let alone losing the feature-set you've built into the native RP app.

Obviously I should have run those edit room audio monitors way the heck down way earlier in my career...

Thanks again !

The answer I'm afraid of is that Apple doesn't allow 'global' sound equalization. In other words, you can tweak the sound in their music app, but no others.  Third-part EQ apps apparently will only work with the Apple music app or stream sources blessed by Apple.  True?  If so, the next question would be is there any thoughts of adding at least rudimentary EQ in the RP app (yeah, I know, that should go in the feature request forum) or do whatever it is that Apple requires in order for third-party EQ apps to work with the RP app.

Thanks in advance for confirming on way or the other.  Oh, and by the way... take it from a guy who worked in studios most of his life, take care of your hearing kids!

I know Bill and everyone takes great pride in providing an outstanding audio chain as evidenced by the addition of a FLAC stream.  I'm not questioning what is sent, but rather what I can do on my end, since I'm of a certain age and having had my ears beat up pretty good over a career working in media production (and a few times being too close to speaker stacks at concerts) that a little bump in the higher frequency ranges would be tremendously helpful.  This really became noticeable today when I received a set of custom in-ear monitors (Alclair Reference, if you're interested) that have a very 'flat' frequency profile and right away listened to the RP stream.  I really do need a boost in the high end.
