Not really, since people very seldom really need to know average levels
these days. What is important in the digital world are peak levels and
perceived loudness... and dBFS takes care of the first one nicely.
If you really need to know average levels for some reason, you can buy
calibrated meters from Dorrough or RTW which follow the ITU standard.
