    Hi guys,

    Could anyone please point me in the right direction of balancing up the speakers. Do I balance the volume by raising & lowering the db levels per speaker?

    Also could anyone tell me where I could get a cheap sound level meter?

    Please help thanks in advance.

    Maplins do cheap kit, but you should be able to set it up by ear. Make sure you set the speaker distances to suit your seating position. I believe the sony also allows you to set the rear speaker position ie above you or to the side etc .then set each speaker and sub so the volume is the same. using the test tone, if you start with all levels at 0 then increase/decrease Db's to suit.Does the sony not have a room setup in the menu to get you started.
    Hope this is of some help
