Back in March I purchased a new Panasonic 55VT50. Couldn't get a calibrator here until today. For that reason, I ran Dnice's slides for 100 hours and input his recommended settings. I was very happy with them for the last 3 months. Jeff came today and worked his magic on my audio and video. I'm amazed at the picture pop and less much less redness.... and the AMAZING difference in my audio system. My audio seems much smoother now and less harsh. Never really noticed it until i heard it calibrated!!! His manual calibration of my receiver is easily 100 times better than what audyssey had set!! Here are the before and after graphs from the Dnice settings to the calibrated settings. wink.gif
And just to be clear.....I'm not bashing anyone here. Just showing the difference between someone elses settings on my TV vs. a calibration.

AccuCal Calibration Report.pdf 487k .pdf file

Sidenote for audio out on oppo: my oppo was set to "bitstream" by myself when I set it up as per the owners manual, since my Onkyo receiver can decode the dolby master audio/TrueHD ect. Connecttions to my Tv are via HDMI 1 (video) and my receiver via HDMI 2(audio).
He actually changed my audio setting to LPCM via the HDMI and set my receiver to multichannel. The sound actually seems smoother (along with dialing in my receiver). Reason being that the Oppo has a far superior decoding capability of the dolby stuff than the Onkyo. He says its partly due to the Oppo having a dedicated "area" to do this wheras the Onkyo splits up many tasks. I can't argue with thousands of dollars of audio equipment

Needless to say. I highly recommend calibrated audio/video.

Amen to that, but especially when it's Jeff Meier. I've had three AccuCal visits over the years as my equipment has gradually changed. A big "Wow" factor each time. cool.gif

I'm still amazed on a daily basis how much better audio sounds via manual calibration over the audyssey. Sooo much clearer and cleaner! I was skeptical at first because I "thought" my system sounded good. Boy was I wrong!

Jeff has calibrated my Kuro several times since I purchased it some years ago. It's still performing perfectly with Jeff's settings and I expect many more years of service before I plan to buy a new HDTV. Jeff is the best in the business IMHO.

not only is calibrating your actual TV better than copying settings, often the default cinema/movie/thx mode is better than copying settings (especially if you set the basics with visual test patterns)
