    Is Avia that much better than the THX OPTIMODE found on dvd's? I dont want to spend $40 if it isnt much better.
    Thanks.

    Besides the fact Avia leads you through all the steps of calibrating your system with easy to follow tutorials, THX optimode calibration is *only* for the movie it is issued with and does not necessarily get your system to a "standard" calibration. Compare your settings from one THX Optimode calibration to the next and you will be surprised at the differences. Avai is standardized and is much easier to use.

    What all does AVIA come with?
    What all does it do?
    Do I also need to get one of those sound meter things?

    grimball,

    You need to google AVIA. You will find out what you want to know.

    Yes, to properly calibrate the audio side of a system, you will need an SPL meter.

    Happy Googling.
