Top critical review
Fine for video, terrible for audio
on October 16, 2015
I can't imagine how this would get positive reviews from anybody using this for audio calibration. I've never seen such a frustrating user interface.
For example: the portion where you can measure the noise floor of your speakers. It gives you five frequencies and a series of decreasing dB levels to test those frequencies at. Nevermind the annoyance that the frequencies are out of order, which is merely annoying to a nit picker like me (they go something like 1KHz, 4KHz, 8KHz, 240Hz, 60Hz - why go the opposite way at the end there? ugh). The real annoying part is that there is absolutely no indication of how to select a different speaker! The test starts with the front left, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to switch to any other speaker. Everything in the interface is usually controlled via the directional arrows and the select button on your bluray remote. But nothing works to get it to move to another speaker. Nothing at all. Perhaps there's a way to do it, but if there is one, there is absolutely no on-screen indication of what it is. Simply terrible UI design, not to mention the test screens are pretty ugly.
One more thing: I would have asked how to switch speakers, but for some reason Amazon isn't allowing customers to ask questions about this product... that's odd...
