D Nice came out and re-calibrated my 111 this fall. He had done the original calibration some four years ago. He was able to lower the black level on this occasion from .0013 to .0007.

D-Nice came out to the S.F. bay area this weekend. I had asked him to do a follow up calibration on my Kuro 111. It's been three years since he first had done my display. At that time I had a B&K...

For me, a happy owner of a D-Nice calibrated 111, the main drawback with these displays is the crushing at the near black end of the spectrum. Take a black and white blu-ray like The Apartment. I've...

In a way I think that folk's quest for infinitely black blacks is a bit misplaced. To me the big issue with these wonderful displays is that they compress the dark end of the spectrum, masking...

I have seen various iterations of this argument for decades. I think it is of no value to continue it. Clearly we are each satisfied with what we hear and enjoy.
