Default Hardware Room Correction EQ

Does anyone know of a good 5.1 hardware room correction EQ? I'm not looking for something like ARC from IK Multimedia, just a great uncolored EQ.

Thanks!

You can get it cheaper if you shop around.

Wait a sec - there's only 2 inputs. So I'll need 3 of these babies?

Yes, you"ll need 3
I can get them for around $700 ea so,
$700 times 3 = $2100 total.( $350 per channel times 6)
Good price vs performance

Those of you who have powered speakers here is a choice:

RANE makes something that might also work for what you want.

http://www.rane.com/rpm88.html#gpm1_2

The RPM88 is an eight channel DSP box that will let you set EQs and Delay.
I haven't used one, I just remember seeing them a while back.

Stereo, so you will need 3 of them, but they great room E.Q.s
I've seen them used for as little as $400.

There is a hardware version of the IK Plugin made by Audyssey.

It's 8 channels. Analog. Calibration software and a mic sold seperately.

I've heard Trinnov makes some good EQs, but haven't used them personally.

Honestly the best EQ for room correction is acoustic treatment. I won't go on a long diatribe about it as i'm sure most of you are already aware but getting a room as close to flat as possible before resorting to EQ is definitely the way to go IMHO.
