MiniDisk & EQ - was Re: Loop Recording and Loading

I've looked at MDs, but have wondered how the lossy
compression & EQ would get along.  My understanding is
that Sony's algorithm removes 'unheard' frequencies,
these frequencies being unheard due to a
psychoacoustic phenomenon called masking

So if these frequencies are not present on the MD
after recording, wouldn't the effectiveness of
subsequent EQ (say, on a mixer) be hampered by the
lack of these frequencies?
