Really what I want is to make sure I'm buying something that's going to meet my wants and needs. For some reason I thought buying the high end of a model meant that what was advertised for wattages is what you got, and the lower models meant you didn't get that.
I initially just wanted my system to be as good as it can be by itself, but now I've realized that I would like to have it a little more powerful, AND I want it to be calibrated correctly.
I've made the decision to buy a SPL tonight from Radio Shack, but I'm not sure what the best calibration disk is, or if I should even use a BD to do the calibration. I've read that others use software on their computer to assist with calibration. I'm not sure which provides the greatest amount of flexibility.
Someone did a full stereo calibration on my old stereo and it made a HUGE difference and I was very satisfied. He used a DVD that ran test tones across all or most frequencies. I've looked at AVIA and DVE but I don't see anything about test tones on multiple frequencies. I don't want to buy either of these DVD's if they ONLY can only assist with the leveling. I want to do a full EQ on my speakers and Sub.
