Default ABX tone level analysis

Hey All-

Can someone please run the Boston Audio Society ABX tone thru software and report what its average level is?

It is here: http://www.bostonaudiosociety.org/media/
The top link.

They claim it's -15dBFS, but my sound editor says -19.22dBFS
Goldwave is the only editor I have that will report an average dB level, maybe someone else here has something that will. Cool Edit, maybe?

Thanx!

I can't do an average level.

I can say that I have a similar tone from a Denon Test CD that when processed as MP3 changes level (down) by 2-4dB.

Thanks Ron, that's interesting.....

Just realized that my DEQ2496 has an RMS meter, will have to give it a try.
