Doubt it. All the digital systems from A&H (ilive, GLD, Qu) have featured geqs fixed on the outputs. If you wanted a geq on the input you’d have to route the input to a group, geq the group, then route the group to LR.

It seems the closest you get is digital systems that don’t feature fixed geqs on outputs instead include them in the FX options to be used as inserts (Behringer X series, Roland, Yamaha,) and they can be inserted on input or outputs, but you suffer coherency issues due to the extra latency added. There are a couple of desks that can automatically time-align channels for you so that everything hits the LR bus at the same time (Avid and Midas Pro, IIRC) but that requires extra DSP, and they’re not really in the same price range as the Qu.

I’d imagine that having a geq on a single input channel and not the others would mess with the coherency of the desk. To keep everything coherant you’d need geqs on every input channel, and I doubt the Qu series would have enough available DSP to run an extra 38 geqs (in the case of the qu32) while keeping latency low.
