Isn’t equalization a bad thing?

Old audiophile folklore states that "equalization filters are bad." Back in the days when everything was analog, room correction and equalization systems were rudimentary and much less effective. Those clumsy, early means of manipulating filters and curves resulted in less than perfect results. Things have changed. Using a cutting-edge fusion of digital signal processing software and a specially-engineered calibration microphone, Anthem Room Correction Genesis measures a room's unique audio characteristics and, with incredible accuracy, optimizes performance in response to that information. With today's powerful and blazingly fast microprocessors, advanced digital filters, and crossover technology, equalization isn't a bad thing anymore.
