    This might be an unusual question, but do you know of any receiver that has a equalizer display (like what winamp has when you listen to music, or what some car stereo head units have)? It might be out of fashion now, but I am really into the look where you can see the bars on a equalizer going up and down, etc etc, or various other designs.

    I'm thinking there probably isn't a receiver with this feature, so my next question is is there some sort of attachment you can add to a receiver that it's only purpose is to produce a nice pretty equalizer display? Perhaps some sort of DJ equipment or something? Please, any help will be greatly appreciated.

    AudioControl (http://www.audiocontrol.com/) used to have a selection. (I have one of their C-130 models) Unfortunately, only their industrial model is still available. You might be able to find the older ones for sale in the used market.
    Quality Kits seems to sell an RTA in kit form.

    A less serious one is available from Hobbytron

    Or if you really want to do it all yourself, see

    I think the problem is that RTA software (like the one from Pinguin http://www.masterpinguin.de/products/pg-am/brochure.htm) is so much more cost effective than a dedicated electronic version that they've been pushed out of the market. *sigh*
    There are a few specialty products sold by the major consumer electronics companies, though. For example Panasonic has the SH-GE90 Digital Sound Processor that includes an RTA

    Considering the names of its "soundfields" I don't know how serious it is.
    I hope this helps a little (I got a little carried away searching the web [​IMG] )
