    I know the ref levels for Avia and VE test disk but what DB are the test tones on the platinum DVD?
    Basically what is ref level on the platinum disk?
    Has anyone used this disk to calibrate before? Any tips?
    This is the only calibration disk I have.
    thanks

    I have Ultimate DVD Platinum, Discwasher home theater set-up system disc (which is Ultimate DVD Silver) and Avia, I use 80dB for the Ultimate disc, they all come out within +/-a dB of each other, except the sub level, DVD Platinum at least in my system seems a little hot. If your system is fairly linear and you don't have alot of room effects calibrating in the 75dB to 85dB will be fine.

    I've used both 75db and 85 db and it seems to work fine.
