Panasonic P60ST50 in Syracuse, NY looking for a reputable calibrator. I see in another forum Marcus Lebeau listed as servicing this area. Anyone deal with him?

Any calibrators in Syracuse available? Chad B - are you touring just in the NY city area?

Thanks in advance.

I live in Charlotte, NC and have a 55" Samsung (LN52A550P3FXZA) and had it calibrated by best buy right after I purchased it. I was never totally happy with the picture quality, especially the blacks, an I am considering new tv. Wondering if Calibration by a real PRO would help that much or is my tv just old compared to what is out now. I bought thinking is was 120hz but it is only 60hz. See below for other specs.

Display Type LCD TV
Diagonal Screen Size 52 in
Viewable Size 52 in
Aspect Ratio 16:9
Max Resolution 1920 x 1080
Contrast Ratio 30,000:1
Brightness 500 cd/m2
Response Time 5 ms

I live and work in the Portland, OR area and while most of my calibration focus is geared towards providing more accurate reviews for my readers, I am available to do calibrations in the area. Additional details can be found at http://referencehometheater.com/.

Hey guys, I'm thinking of having my new LG 55LM7600 calibrated as I'm very new to this, and I live in Manhattan (SoHo area). I also picked up a Yamaha YSP-2200 that I'm considering having calibrated as well. Any recommendations? Or, PM me if you are interested so we can talk.

Thanks,

`John

Doug Blackburn informed me he is moving, which leaves quite a dearth in Colorado. I don't know anyone else locally I can trust.

Any suggestions for the Denver area? I have a Panasonic TCP-58V10 that I never got professionally calibrated.

That's odd. I called Cinema Quest, and they tried to refer me to Doug Blackburn before I told them he's moving. Now I'm really confused.

Edit: I called again. I guess it was Alan Brown I spoke with at Cinema Quest. Apparently, he decided a while back that from now on he can only afford to do calibrations on his own customers' displays. So Doug and Alan are both a no-go.

Has anyone in the Denver area ever had any experience with a calibration by ListenUp?

I'm curious if anyone has a summertime tour for the SF Bay Area. Things should be set up and ready here by then.

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

I'm going to be moving there this summer from Colorado. Can't setup any appointment dates yet, as we don't know exactly when the move will happen yet (have to sell the house here and find something there), but we are coming. If you don't get what you need elsewhere, keep me in mind.

Since Doug is leaving Colorado, effectively leaving a hole, I will expand my coverage area to cover east of the Rockies. If anyone is needing a THX calibration, feel free to give me a shout. My calibration equipment list can be accessed via the link in my signature.

Any recommendations for a calibrator or anyone visiting the Miami, FL area in the next couple of months? I have a Samsung PN59D7000 desperately in need of a calibration. The room is pretty bright and I can't get it to look right.


Thanks,

Rudy

I am looking for a professional calibrator in the Philadelphia area. I am located in Bucks County just outside Philly.

I recently purchased a 50" GT50 Plasma and looking to get the most out of this great TV.

Anyone in or will be in the Boston area for a Sharp 80LE844U? Also, how long a break-in period should there be (if any) before calibration.

I'll be there in late June or July, as part of a AR-LA-TX-OK-KS trip. I'm working on scheduling now.

I've sent you some additional info via private message.
