Simply put, A ISF/THX calibrator can't do A whole lot with basic adjustments, and if A "Video Processor (DVDO)" could provide the needed tools as A "standard feature in there VPs for NO EXTRA COST" whats wrong with that..
That doesn't mean that you need to know how to use these tools just like it doesn't mean you need to know how to service your car....
Yes, I had my Pioneer 111FD (with an already excellent grayscale) calibrated by an ISF tech. Since the 111 has ISF ccc modes available, he set it up and I watch everything in ISF Night mode. Pictures are gorgeous and I have no complaint. If my EDGE had a CMS system I wouldn't complain either, but it doesn't and I've not seen a need in my case.
There were other sets in the comparisons I did leading up to buying the 111 that had clear need for something
, as the red push was obvious even though all sets in the comparison were calibrated (not ISF, though). And the grayscale patterns of the sets really
showed most needing help, some more than others. A CMS, probably.
Are Lumagens more expensive than Anchor Bay products in general, by the way?
