    I've got the S&V HT disc and it has everything I need to tweak my system, audio & video. Highly recommended.
    The Avia I've never used but I've heard it's more in-depth. But don't forget that Ovation software makes both DVD's. Plus, the Avia is more expensive and I don't think you're getting THAT much more.

    What are you calibrating? Tv and sound...or just sound? I used to it calibrate my hdtv, and speaker system, and it works great...the first one contains more on the tv side(in depth)...If its sound, I'd say grab the Tune up...tom

    S&V=all the basics + 6.1 (rear ch) cal.
    Avia=all the basics + only 5.1 cal. (also more demos)

    Do you love those Sonus Faber speakers, by the way?
    I auditioned the Concertinos and loved the imaging and crispness, and the high's were increadible, but I thought they were a bit bass shy as mains. Am I right on this?

    the concertinos are bass shy BUT they are bookshelf speakers. They also make concertos which are also bookshelfs and have a bit of bass. I use a powered sub with my system so it is not much of an issue for me. One time I bought a pair of Klipsch speakers for the bass and the highs killed my ears. I love the mids and highs of the Sonus. Plus the grand pianos do have some low end!

    Thanks! By the way, the S&V disk really has all you need for the basic tune up, plus test tones to the rear ch. which the Avia does not.
