I've been a member (but mostly a lurker) for a while now, and want to thank everyone for an incredible amount of knowledgeable, time-saving input on the several different displays I've owned over the years.
Now, I'm the very happy owner of one of the last NIB KRP-500M, found by happy accident at a reasonable price from an authorized Pio former installer/dealer.
I'm running the panel through the D-Nice/Evangelo break-in process at the moment, and looking forward to going to the recommended Pure Mode settings at the end of this week. Based on the brief Blu-ray playbacks I've tried thus far, this monitor is mind-boggling right out of the box, let alone when set properly, and I can't wait to re-view any number of my favorite films.
I'll eventually install ControlCal and have an ISF calibration done.
All of this babble - sorry - leading up to something I found in the user manual which has me intrigued, and for which I've found no detailed answer in the two KRP threads:
Pioneer indicates there is a 'Studio Mode' available in the Integrator Menu, which, in the somewhat fractured English used in the manual, seems to be designed to preset the KRP to television/film production standards. Has anyone tried this mode, and am I understanding correctly what it does?
