    Ive been looking around and cant seem to find a good solid way or opinion on how to properly hook up the SG-9500 to an SX-1050. Some some to use pre out and some say tape out... Any and all help would be appreciated.

    I always put it between the pre out and the amp in. With the switch set for separates.
    I know some gear has effects loop jacks but I don't think that does

    Actually, the SX-1050 does have an adapter loop which is the best place to insert an EQ IMO. Presenting the EQ with line level should provide superior noise performance.

    This is true. The line level will most of the time be much higher than the preamp output level and will provide a larger difference between the signal in the EQ and the noise in the EQ. Better all around to use either a tape monitor or the adapter loop on the SX-1050.

    Either in the EPL or in the tape monitor circuit. Less noise that way.
