The EQ901USB is an upgrade replacement for existing BOSE 901® Equalizers. The EQ901USB Series features four specifically designed equalization curve sets unique to each Series: I/II, III/IV or V/VI (select your series when ordering*).
The EQ901USB is also a high performance digital pre-amplifier (DAC) intended to drive high quality power amplifiers or integrated amplifiers/receivers. Analog, USB and TOSLINK digital audio inputs are provided.
When used in the digital input mode the music stream is maintained in the digital domain all the way through the 901 equalization process. This is the purest and highest fidelity way to drive your 901s.

Setting Tone Modes
Selection of the tone mode is generally a subjective choice based on what sounds best to you. Specifically, Normal mode is the most neutral, Enhanced mode provides a richer sound with more treble and bass, Warm mode adds midrange with slight treble reduction, and Low Frequency Reduction mode is intended to control bass in smaller rooms or on “boomy” recordings.
