Not trying to put anybody out of work....just want to justify the value.
There are still quite a few setup issues and other kind of gotachas a professional calibrator might be able to handle for you. Things like evaluating which color format (RGB or YCC) the display works with best. You also still need to do a bit of setup on the display. Brightness, contrast and cuts and gains all need to be set correctly for the cube to work properly.
Then their is also the issue of equipment, many pro's are going to be equipped with very high-end gear.
A caveat, is that the type of calibrator I'm talking about is the touring type like the ChadBs of the world that really know their stuff.
With all of that said, once you get to the point where everything behind the radiance is setup correctly, running AutoCal from CalMAN will give you darn near bit perfect results.
