    I found this of very limited technical value, Otex, common sense and Google might yield a better outcome.

    I bought this disc as I have an Audiolab system which, although it sounds wonderful, is rather difficult to set up - it has none of the easy and automatic set up of many of the better Japanese systems. It is unusual as it relies heavily on the listener's own personal perception of what is going on with the sound. It requires very careful and repetitive listening to do this correctly. Set aside a decent chunk of time - it's not a quick process! If you work through the many steps on the disc, you end up with a system that is probably set up better than it ever was before. Indeed, I am sure that even if you have a Japanese style system, with automatic set up, if you try this disc, you will end up with a better set up. It will end up sounding as good as it can get -and more importantly, it sounds the best it can to you, individually. Most set up discs rely on sounds and microphones, or even sound pressure meters, but with this, you are just listening to it and responding to that by both changing settings on your AV and also moving the speaker positions. It is not particularly easy to do, but then if you weren't a critical listener, who is prepared to do it, you wouldn't need the disc in the first place. Excellent, but not easy, in summary.
