    I joined primarily so I could download Room EQ Wizard. Before I do, I need to know if I NEED new equipment to run it, or if what I have is likely to work at least to get me started. I should note, I have no signal processing in my home setup. I'm largely a stereo guy, though I do run my HDTV...
