Default Anyway to enable 20-60Hz in EQ?

I noticed the lowest is 80 HZ, but I like it to go to 20HZ, 40HZ and 60HZ.

Is there any mods to do this?

Just wondering. What are you listening to? Contrabassoon & Tuba recitals?
Most instruments do not reach that low of a frequency.

It's a shame too because the older Cowon players (like the G3) was able to do 60Hz.

Cowon are you listening? 50-60Hz is the sweet spot for bass (not 70Hz nor 80Hz).

Limitation in the hardware, so it's just the way it is.

Because that's the way they are designed. What you're asking for is getting into serious sub-bass territory, and generally subs need a lot more power than a 2-way or 3-way speaker to pump out those frequencies. As a result it's a limiting factor when making a PMP.

The lowest band of the Wolfson chip's hardware EQ is a shelf, not a notch like the three middle bands. It affects all frequencies below 80Hz equally. Since it is a 'hard-coded' EQ of the S9's DAC chip, one can't choose other center frequencies than the ones available.

In short: it *does* affect 20, 40, 60Hz the same way it affects 80Hz.

Datasheet (look at page 115 ff. to see how Wolfson implements an EQ): http://www.wolfsonmicro.com/products/WM8985/
