I agree, with my sansaclips/fuze i don't touch the EQ at all, its all flat. And even when using replaygain, if i am listening to a song loud enough then bass distortion occurs if the following track is bass heavier than the preceding track (like rock>rap). I am left with two choices, lower volume for the rap track, or lower bass.
The best i can come up with is lowering the bass via rockbox's shortcut menu (and assign bass + - as two of the shortcut keys), the only real gripe with this is the actual change takes around 30secs to occur (not in realtime).

But.... I know lots of people say flat is best and flat is how it should be done, well i'm not wholly convinced. I mean isn't some music like classical really asking for some tweaking to best showcase its style?
Even if the case for flat still prevails (across all music genres), im pretty sure i liked tweaking a few things here and there on my X5 for different genres (it sounded better to my ears, and in the end isn't that what counts).

But yeh I woulda thought that feature woulda been obvious, perhaps not.
