I will actually be moving in a couple of months so I am not sure there is any point to calibrating it out of the box, but what about break in? I may not ever even have it professionally calibrated, I just don't know. I am in the NYC area if someone can toss out a good recco.
For someone in my position, getting the brand new set and anxious to use it, but moving to a different environment in the near future, what would you all advise be the first say 2 or 3 steps I take with the panel? Run some break-in slides for the first 100 hours, then throw it in THX mode? That's my hunch, but like I said, I am a little lost here. thanks in advance for the guidance!
If you're going to have it professionally calibrated then don't run the slides.
If you're going to calibrate it yourself then don't runt the slides and do a tune-up when you think it's necessary.
If you're going to use D-Nice's settings then run the slides right, don't watch any tv or use the apps etc until after 100 hours of slides and then apply the settings, if D-Nice ever posts them. Be sure to read the directions for the 2012 settings before starting since you'll need to ensure that it;s in the right mode.
I intend to have mine calibrated much later and so I am just enjoying the view.
