    I picked up my RS SPL Analog meter yesterday for $32 dollars with tax. I live in Birmingham, AL and don't know if this is a local sale but the RS I went to had them 25% off. I just wanted to let everyone know who was thinking about picking one up.

    I haven't bought the AVIA calabration disk but wanted to know if anyone has ever seen Blockbuster carry them for rent. I can't wait to calibrate my system.

    Hi Daniel. While the setup disks are better, check your receiver. A lot of them have a "test" feature that will give you test tones to all 5 speakers. (but not to the sub if its a Yamaha).

    Good Luck.

    Bob,

    I have read many threads about calibrating HT system but I am still confused. On my SPL meter I know I need to switch to 70db w/ C weighting and slow response. I have a H/K avr 55 and the volume will go from 0 to 70. Do I turn the volume to a desired setting then adjust the left, center, right, surrounds, and sub. What is the best way to do the calibration.

    It's on sale in California too. Many places are out and they say that they haven't received any shipments in a while
