I was a very frustrated after spending the whole day tuning my new porch speakers to find out all my hard work went to zero. I rely on using the equalizer when playing music. There is nothing more satisfying being able to fine tune what your are listening too. Why would you stop something that worked? I hope the community understands my frustration and you bring back the eq for apple airplay. It’s like having a jet boat with a trolling motor. I’ve been a Spotify premium member for some time now. If not give it to the none subscribers at least let the premium members be able to utilize it.
