Building a loudness compensation curve in Equalizer APO v1.3

I just purchased a new Fiio K7 BT.  Nice unit for headphones - replacing a Creative G6.  The Fiio sounds terrific.  Clearly a nice DAC.

I miss the low-volume EQ that was switchable in the G6 for desktop speaker use.

Many have suggested using EQ APO v1.3.  It's installed, and it works.  But what would a properly designed loudness compensation curve look like?  I have a feeling it's more subtle than simply the shape of a U or V.

My purpose is for low-level desktop speaker use, not headphones, etc.  I am outputting through standard RCA phono cables to the input of a small, older SONY receiver that has no switchable "loudness" setting.

Thanks for any input!

I am an idiot - more probing in the submenus shows that a filter is part of EQ APO to accomplish exactly what I want.
