I think I'd rather equalize the signal before digitizing, but it's worth
a try if it can be done immediately and without expenditure :-)

It has always puzzled me that the convention was to put the phone preamp
in the amplifier, not in the deck. Tape decks have neraly always adopted
the sensible convention - you have to go back to the 1950's to find
amplifiers with inputs for direct connction to a tape replay head, and
switches for NAB and other curves for different tape speeds.

Oops, I'm showing my age.
