I like the idea of manual equalizer. Are there any receivers out there with manual equalizers? We have all Sony link system. Like the av1070 but as many people have mentioned it does have problems that need soldering. Is there anything comparable. Going crazy without music. Also would need something to plug in the turn table. Thanks

Most receivers have some sort of an electronic equalizer as part of their automatic calibration system (new concept versus your model), but it's not the sort of thing you fiddle with, it's more of a "get your system perfect and leave it" idea.

A phono inputs going to be hard to find in a new receiver. You can buy external preamps, and new turntables often have preamps built-in these days.

Lots of phono preamps are available, both on ebay and by googling the term.

The new equalization systems do go for best fidelity, and if you're like most of us, you might want to tweak the "tone controls" a bit beyond that. There's no good solution for that -- even if you get an outboard equalizer, it would only work for you on analog inputs, where your surround can't be better than ProLogic.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
