Guessing this relates to your EQ question - the answer is no.
You do have a tape loop on the AVR for listening to and recording tapes. However, the "tape monitor" function of old amps has gone the way of the dodo bird - this is where you forced the signal through the tape loop (and EQ), with "tape monitor" effectively letting you hear what you were recording.
Me, I wanted better CD music, so hooked up an EQ inline between my CD player and the AVR inputs (using red/white L/R RCA analog cables).
You can technically hook up an eq between any source and your AVR, though it will only work for 2 channel analog signals (assuming it's a 2-channel EQ). Mind you, if you had a Blu-ray player with 7.1 analog out, you could run four matched EQs on the signal between the BDP and the AVR. Hmmmmm.........
Mind you, at this point you're probably getting into separates pre/pro territory.
