    the report6s are that the dve disc is a bit of a dud...... given also that you are using a tv and not a projector/plasma I suggest that you should look for AVIA. It may cost a bit more but it is really invaluable.

    I'm not an expert on DVE's quality but I'd recommend searching this forum more for further opinions.

    I've got DVE (PAL) and Avia. Personally I'd recommend Avia, particularly as your collection is mostly NTSC. It's easier to use and has more involved audio set up.

    I agree with the lack of involvement in the audio section The section of setting levels with a SPL meter seems rushed and doesn't link very clearly to the reference materials section where the audio test tones are. However, the audio test tone section is well made with the on screen graphics.
