* Calibrating your speakers

The audiophiles at Ecoustics have done it again - today they've got a tutorial on calibrating your speakers with a sound meter.

The various calibration discs usually play a tone for a few seconds, and then move to the next speaker. This can be a bit frustrating, as that brief tone often doesn't provide you with enough time to get a good reading, make level adjustments, and prepare for the next speaker. However, the discs tend to put each speaker's test tone on a different DVD chapter; this allows you to play the tone you want, and quickly press the Repeat button on your DVD player or remote. The tone will continue to play, stop, and then, instead of moving to the next speaker, repeat. Once you've got the level locked in, you can move to the next speaker.
Ah, for want of a calibration DVD and a sound meter...
