Thank you for your reply.
Just: If what you say is true, how is it possible when I remove the 
whole directory ~/.config/pulse that after a reboot launching qpaeq 
shows still the same settings?
Also I found this github repo with some .preset files in readable form - 
where would they be placed correcty then?
https://github.com/rsommerard/pulse-presets Something like this would be 
ideal for my case.
Also: When I save different presets from qpaeq, where can I find them?

regards Bernhard
