i guess very few people would actually know , understand , what pioneer did to achieve such amazing results , perhaps d nice or somebody tech minded on here may be able to explain it (in laymans terms if possible
), and why it would be likely to be expensive ..
the way things are going re panny rising blacks , matching the kuro may be irrelevent , my own irish , 46g10e still seems fine to me , i have not measured it , money is too tight to be buying meters , but it looks fine , there is not a lot being said about this issue on the various uk , irish tech sites though , which got me thinking ..
correct me if im wrong , the 09 pannys sold in the states had black enhancer , corrector , whatever , i dont think uk and european models have any kind of black enhancer , corrector tool ,
the rising black problem is extremely rare in the uk from what i can gather , i wonder is it possible , that in trying to satisfy the more demanding u.s. market , panny made a slip up ?? probably way off the mark , but hey ...
