Does anybody have a link that compares the features of these calibration discs? Or which one would suggest? And why. Thanks in advance for your input.

With all the helpful knowledge and opinions on this site I can't believe nobody replied.

S&V is a somewhat stripped down version of Avia, though it has tones for 6.1, which Avia and VE do not.

VE has excellent video calibration material with thorough explaination. The audio calibration is fine, but I found the info to be less useful.

Have not picked up DVE yet.

A lot of us know the features of each but I cannot think of a site that compares them. I used to have Video Essentials then I got AVIA when that came out because of its expanded video test signals (and audio too). I recently sold that off to get DVE because of the 6.1 among other things. It was also quite cheap compared to AVIA.

Thanks John and Neil. Looks like I'll pick up the DVE.

Well for those interested I found a way to compare calibration discs. Hope this is of some use to those considering which one to purchase.
