Current design methods for digital equalization filter face the problem of a frequency response increasingly deviating from their analog equivalent close to the Nyquist frequency. This paper deals with a new way to design equalization filters, which improve this behavior over the entire frequency range between 0 Hz (DC) and Nyquist. The theoretical approach is shown and examples of lowpass, peak- and shelving-filters are compared to state-of-the-art techniques. Listening tests were made to verify the audible differences and rate the quality of the different design methods.
