    My 436xde is slowly ging throught it's run in period. What is the best software/disc to calibrate it with. I have heard of DVE and Aria. Do these do sound?

    Where is the best place to get the disc from?

    A guy in a Hi-Fi shop said the THX optimiser does just as good a job and does sound (leading me to think the ones above don't). Is this so?

    Cheers in advance.

    Both DVE and AVIA have audio test signals. The THX optimiser is on a per disc basis - optimised for that disc.

    I prefer DVE (once you have worked out how to navigate it) ; ) There used to be a power buy on here but that has ended - amazon were stocking it last time I looked.
