Glad this post was so easy to find. I'm setting up a Blue Sky 5.1 kit and this info proved invaluable.

But—

There is such discrepancy between the 3 sources! Some say Film cal should be all 85dBc and others say the surrounds should be 82dBc. Which is it really?

The Surround Associates strives to make head or tail of the +10dB LFE channel question, but only confuses me further.

Which brings up another question: The Dolby setup, is it talking about Dolby-decoded outputs only? I simply want to monitor uncompressed, pre-encoded 5.1 stems I receive from my music mixer, so do I still follow the +10dB LFE gain or not?

I feel that the advice given doesn't spend enough time explaining the differences between the various sources and encoding methods and how those relate to calibration.

In the end, I did it the Blue Sky way. Let's hope that's somewhat accurate.
