    The model number on the Radio Shack SPL meter is 33-2050.

    I would purchase a copy of The Avia Guide to Home Theater. It's easier to use than Video Essentials and has more test patterns. You can probably find a copy of this at Circuit City, Best Buy, or any other electronics/DVD store.

    I think the Avia's Disk is too comprehensive and you don't need all the patterns. Video Essentials is good enough or the Sound and Vison I saw at Fry's Electronics for $15. I have all the calabration disk except for the S&V

    Well I picked up the Analog SPL meter at Radio shack.
    When I went to look for the disc's now im having trouble. Went into my local CC, BB, and GG they didnt seem to have it. When I asked if they carried either of these disc they gave me a WTF are you talking about look.
    My receiver arrives tommorrow, now I have no disc to calibrate it with. Where am I supposed to get these at?? Everyone local seems to be an idiot when it comes to HT or something.

    Wow great website, Phil. I was just about to ask how the hell do I use this meter anyways, cuss I had no clue [​IMG]
    Where can I get the VE disc?? So I can calibrate how it says on your site.
