Default Accuphase G-18

I currently have a Fono Accuphase E-800 (DAC50-AD50) stage and an Accuphase C-47, because my room has some acoustic problems, I am thinking of using an Accupahse G-18 equalizer!
I searched here on the forum and on Google, and I didn't find much information, I imagine that due to old age, it must be difficult to find components for maintenance!
It would be really good. get to know other opinions about the use of the G-18.

It would be really good. get to know other opinions about the use of the G-18.
The G-18, launched in March 1985, was an analog 1/3rd octave stereo graphic equalizer.
From May 1997 all EQ functions were transferred into digital (DG-28 Voicing Equalizer).
Voicing Equalizers are currently at their 5th generation (DG-68), and this is the machine I'd recommend.

I listen to a lot of vinyl records, I even just bought an Accuphase C-47 phono stage, I don't see much sense in passing the vinyl through the DG-58 digital, I'm going to keep looking for the G-18!

The sense is getting access to digital room correction.
Earlier I already recommended DG-68 (not DG-58).
Reasons:
1) Digital units (e.g. DG-68) are more precise and consistent than a 36year old analog unit (G-18) with its ageing analog components.
2) The ADC/DACs and the correction of DG-68 work with a high resolution of 24bit/352.8kHz (also called DXD), so there will not be any audible signal deterioration.
3) DG-68 uses one 8ch ES9028Pro per stereo channel as DAC and also features Accuphase ANCC.
As such its DAC quality is superior to DAC-50 with its 2ch AK4490EQ per stereo channel and without ANCC.
You can also use a DG-68 as DAC for digital sources (except USB).

Your system would then look as follows:
analog: analog source > C-47 > DG-68 > E-800
digital: DP-570 as transport > HS-Link 2 > DG-68 > E-800 (DP-570 uses half of an ES9028Pro, i.e. 4ch, per stereo channel, DG-68 uses a full ES9028Pro, i.e. 8ch, per stereo channel.)
