The CD3100 offers a wealth of EQ customization options. In addition to the preset EQ configurations (defeat, power, sharp, vocal), there are plenty of ways in which users can tweak the audio output to their own tastes. The simplest way to do this is by adjusting the basic band settings for bass, treble, and midrange by using the control knob.
