You could search this CRT forum(button upper left) or the SON 960 owners' thread to find out more. For terms like black level, contrast, pic mode, even 'warm', hue, calibration.
In LCDs you'll read terms like 'crush' (multiple contrast/brightness levels revealed as the same level/no differentiation.)
You may not be used to watching a calibrated pic for what it brings. Like most, we're used to 'torch'(vivid) mode.
You can also refer to your Sony manual for a little guidance on pic adjustments, and what they were intended for.
You don't have to like the calibrated settings, but it's nice to know what they are.
