    Seeing as I have been recommended to balance out my system with one, does anyone have a link or instructions on how to do it? I am sure that I have seen one somewhere but cannot seem to locate it.

    Thanks.

    P.s. Any one want to place a guess, when it turns up, what Db level my wife will reach moaning about another home cinema gadget..... :rolleyes:

    You place the SLM where you sit, and run the test tones via each speaker (one at a time) and adjust until you get the volume that the big dial points to. ;)
