I think this smells a bit like snake-oil.
The EQ/Filtering/Compression/Anything in a rendered signal *is* the
signal now and there is no way telling, what aspect of the signal is
introduced by the filtering and what part is the pristine, "hifi
original". You can make estimations based on common "standards" and try
to reverse, what *you* dislike in the signal but you cannot effectively
restore the signal before mastering.
