I am wondering what the most accurate method is for calibrating speaker levels. My receiver has test tones built in, as I suppose every receiver does, but there are also speaker level tests in-disc, such as in Avia.


For optimal imaging, is it best to calibrate the levels with an in-disc test or using the receiver's built in tones? I am getting slightly different levels using either method. I have a sound level meter, so these are pretty accurate measurements and not just by ear.


Thanks...

The disk has all of your components in the mix such as DVD and DACs, hence it gives a more accurate sound level. If you have a 7.1 system, you have several choices from which to calibrate your surround back speakers. There are differences in the levels from DD Surround EX and DTS ES discrete. Your receiver's test tones cannot adjust for this.
