    Avia is in the mail somewhere and I got the good 'ol radio shack SPL meter today. Calibrated everything but the sub (waiting for Avia on that one) and here are the numbers:
    FL: +6dB
    CNTR: +4dB
    FR: +6dB
    SR:+5dB
    SL:+5db
    When I hit the test tone button on my receiver I should leave the master volume at 0, right? Anyways, I'll post results using Avia in a few days. Wish me luck![​IMG]

    Chih,

    with internal test tones you are expected to calibrate to 75dB. This way with volume knob at 0 during DVD playback, you are at reference levels...

    Avia is calibrated at 85dB level.

    Truth is, as long as you calibrate to have allspeakers at this same level, and listenas loud as you like without exceeding capabilites of your amp and speakes, you are OK.

    Enjoy !!
