Originally posted by mpsaneditor58, glad you are here. My Q006 is being delivered next Wednesday at 3PM. I have Rotel as well...with a Meridian Proc and B&W all around. I also have a Sony 975 that I will unbox when I get the Q.
I do not like it when people screw up and they now seem to think that a simple "whatever" is OK!
So, since you, too, are a coffee snob, does this mean we are talking Bodum stuff?
No Bodum - I have a Bunn Rest. model customed into a single unit, Bunn Rest. grinder, and a Salvatore Commercial single group Espresso Machine, Nuvo Flat Burr Grinder... with the coffes machines all plumbed in...
I do like your component set-up!!
I keep hearing everyone setting up their picture to warm. If you ever watch the news magazines, All the shows are way "Over-Warmed".
For us to shoot at Dateline, our Camera has to see Roger Macie just outside of Boston. We go to his shop, Drop off the Camera, and then have
a late lunch at Durgin-Park. Pick up the Camera late in the day, and head back to NYC. The cameras are set up to the Roger Macie "Uni-Standard". Basically, Roger developed a "LOOK" that NBC likes, so all the Shooters have their cameras set-up by Roger so when we show up for a two or three camera shoot, they will be very close to matching, and all we have to do is a minor "paint-job" with the camera paintboxes. It saves a lot of time. BUT, all the cameras are VERY WARM. Add to that the AMBER gels for the backgrounds that we use (cause NBC like it that way), and you have an exceeding warm picture. I prefer to have my TV color temp at around 7K kelvin. It tends to compensate for over saturated Chroma, but that is too much for many of the shows like CSI, or even Sports, which is perfect at 65K kelvin. So, there really is no winning. Every one of the networks has their own Master control standard.
