and just build-in eq. in my SR5005 is just as good as these pricey multichannel eq.?
Nope. But it is much much better than none.

Thanks Kal

Just for 2 channel only, which ones would you reccomend
From experience, the DEQX. It is expensive but very powerful. I just received a sample of the Anti-Mode 2.0 which is much more affordable and, although it it promising, I cannot comment yet on its sound/performance. I suggest you take a look at it, though, as the company has a good reputation and record.

They are all roughly equivalent in terms of EQ ability and differ mostly in in/out facilities and in control/preamp features.

Yes, of course, in Stereophile.

and what benefits does a pricey high-end eq. offer over the internal eq. on my Marantz?

EDIT: I m running a PRE/PRO setup (Marantz SR5005 with NuForce MCH-2-C5 amplifier (unbalanced connected/RCA). Do I have a benefit with this setup when I want multi-channel eq?

Higher resolution, better control and customization. The Audyssey in your Marantz will certainly do a competent job but one cannot tweak it at all.

If you are asking if there is a benefit to be gained by adding the DEQX to this setup, my answer is that it is more than likely. My lack of positivity is based on my ignorance of your speakers, room setup and acoustics and personal bias/preference in sound. OTOH, you might be better served by applying the cost of the DEQX to (1) improving the unnamed speakers, (2) improving their setup and room acoustics and/or (3) getting a prepro with Audyssey XT32+Pro. There is no simple answer.
