Oh, I agree it's nice insurance, but the filter caps and diodes in the power supply should be up to the task, and if they aren't, it's only a quick solder job away from new caps/diodes. On that...

No one? This is one of the more interesting things that can be done with a smartphone and a kuro, why is there no interest?

Your crossover is set too low to really hear much of anything, I would set my crossover at 100-120hz and then take it down from there, but 50hz is definitely too low. I tend to use professional audio...

No consumer level product should require an external voltage regulator, that's ridiculous. I use MOV based surge protectors, which are almost worthless and I have never had an electronic device...

The Atypical "Accessing Pioneer 9G Kuro Service Menu" thread

Ok, so I have done a lot of reading on the topic and while I love the idea of controlcal for uploading "profiles" for my 5020, I am simply not interested in buying the hardware and software for what...

Does anyone have any quantifiable data regarding the 65S64 and 65ST60, or perhaps any of the same size S64 and ST60. I was going to buy a used Pioneer Kuro but have decided that the 151FD is too dim...

Kind of wonder what a 151fd with 12k hours is worth, on the topic of used plasma deals.

Kind of curious what you paid? I am looking at a used 60ST60, the guy is asking $1100, seems kind of high, my thought was around the 600-800 range, but then again, maybe I am out of touch with used...

Right, I remember reading a little on the red tint issue, I guess I have yet to see it on a Kuro, and of course, 0.03 is quite high, high enough to notice

My sentiments were the same...who has measured this phenomenon? By that I mean, MLL's rising so much.

Lots of great information here. I suppose regaining the Kuro greatness involves a panel reset or at least some fairly complex adjustments. Where are these raised MLL's coming from? I mean, who...

Very true. it's hard to qualify the ft.L scale when I have so little experience in actually viewing a measured and calibrated display. I have to go by mean panel brightness estimates, which vary so...

Interesting, I had heard that the ST60 was basically as bright as Panasonic has ever gone with Plasma, well, while maintaining great black levels. The ST60 has been said to be able to hit 60ft.L,...
