Ok, i'll check into it. Meanwhile we could communicate via pm here.

Is there an official place to post customer calibrator reviews? Had a great experience with chad b and would simply like to share my experience in the appropriate forum/thread - thanks!
post #2614 of 3103
It's best to post in the Owner's Thread for your Display Model.. AVS user htwaits will pick it up and link it in his Review Thread.. (you can also PM htwaits with the link to your review).

PM here: http://www.avsforum.com/messages/messages/compose/u/45236

Good afternoon,

I have had my Q750i about a month now and would like to get most out of it. I have Calman and have done my last two projectors but I am unsure my spyder pro will work. That said, if a new meter is needed I would prefer someone that has the equipment do it.

For the first time in 3 years I will be going to CES next week. I will be arriving Monday late and hitting the ground running Tuesday morning, and staying till late the following Monday. After all, who would leave Vegas on a Friday night! Not me, that's when all the fun starts to really gather its momentum when you're from out of town and don't go there often.

Is AVS having its dinner there this year? It didn't last time I went.

So if you are a Vegas or surrounding areas local and want your display calibrated, contact me early so I'll be know to extend my stay for you.

I have a Samsung UN55ES7500F and have tried using calibration discs but am still not completely happy with this TV. I am looking for a professional ISF calibrator in the Philadelphia area (19137). Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

My vote is ChadB, he passes through our town every couple of months!

I just got a Elite Pro-70X5 that I wanna calibrate. And also a Elite 151FD that I wanna recall rate. Anybody in Honolulu, Hi certified ISF I can contact. Or anyone here so happen to come to Hawaii for a visit soon or sometime can help me out let me know. PM or email me. I was referred to one on the island. Try to contact the person but never got back to me.

Did you contact Glen Watase at WDS AV Interiors? His contact info available in the List linked in my signature below.

I'll also contact him about the Elite by Sharp.
post #2627 of 3103
Pm'ed you.. Btw.. What you think of just getting a meter and Calman 5 combo over there at http://www.calibrationforums.com/ (I'm a member there also). And run AutoCal on my set.

There is no shortcut to calibrate a Elite by Sharp and that includes auto calibrate. I'm also a advocate of DIY calibration if you are willing to spend the required never ending time to learn and get the proper equipment.

In regards to meters, I recommend a Spectro.. even a used i1Pro Rev D.

Why a Spectro, see why here:

And Read this Thread:

I have replied you to as well.

Would using control cal + 151 profile get me 99.9% of the way there with a 6020-turned-elite conversion? Or should I just go with the pro?

Since the power supply and e-lite board swaps, I feel my set's black levels have deteriorated. I don't know if there is any possible correlation there but I do not have the inky, bezel-blending blacks I once enjoyed. This set was calibrated by d-nice before the swap....is it possible the levels would have changed as a result of the conversion?

Many thanks!
post #2630 of 3103
99.9% of what, and what Professional? What D-Nice is capable of doing with a Pioneer and myself are two different things.. He is a Pioneer Guru! He has more Kuros in his home than some have ever calibrated.

Are you willing to commit to the time required to learn this, it's never ending.. are you willing to commit the time and to getting the proper equipment? Don't expect those results from the beginning. Again, if you are willing to do so and I believe D-Nice himself would concur, you could achieve the results you desire.

If it was calibrated before and you do the upgrade, you need to re-calibrate. If you have additional 1500-2000 hours on your Pioneer without the update, you need to as well.

As far as your black levels, check the Input Video Setup, is it on Auto, RGB 16 - 235, RGB 0 - 255 etc ?

A bit off topic but thought it would be worth posting for other's benefit.

UMR (Jeff Meier) has calibrated 2 of my systems (both video and audio). The results in both systems exceeded my expectations! He also helped me select the right audio gear for my basement system.

Last year, I did my first ever audio upgrade in a car-navigation head unit, component speakers in the front, coax in the rear deck, small sub in the trunk, and a 5 channel amp. The system sounded "okay," but I thought it had potential for more.

I sent Jeff an e-mail and asked him if he'd be willing to hear it when coming through on his tour (I didn't know if this is something he would do). He said sure, he would have a listen.

We met a month later and he used his gear and ears to dial in the EQ, distance delays, etc. and now my system sounds AWESOME! cool.gif

Happy New Year everyone. smile.gif
post #2632 of 3103
Gax, you may also want to post your calibration feedback in the equipment owner's threads here on AVS, that way other owners can easily see this feedback about Jeff's work... htwaits should pick up this report soon..
post #2633 of 3103
I concur. It would be helpful to me, if you guys posted some kind of feedback on your ISF calibration experience!

I may be under a false assumption here....I thought the 9g profile you receive when purchasing ControlCal were basically ready-made calibrations based on the results of hundreds of prior 9g Kuro calibrations. While I know that each set is unique, I would expect the variance to fall within a minimal deviation to the point where a ControlCal profile would get you "99.9% of the way there."

From what I glean contextually, it sounds like you're saying this is not the case and it would require some serious effort and commitment on my part to get an excellent calibration out of ControlCal; to learn the craft, so to speak. If so, then I will definitely "go with the pro," ala find an ISF guy who tours the Tampa Bay area. I had briefly gotten in touch with D-nice in December but never heard back. I chalked it up to the holidays.....so figure I need to find another guy who tours this area more frequently.

Thank you for the recommendation on checking the colorspace....I will do that this evening.

There is no way there are universal settings that are 99.9% correct for this or any display I have ever seen. I will be in Tampa in April if you are interested in my services.
post #2637 of 3103
I guess I misunderstood you, I now think you posted/asked about D-Nice's reference settings he has posted in the past for the Pioneers which many owners have enjoyed. He didn't even say 99.9%. You could try that on your upgraded one I suppose..

What I thought you were posting is if you could get a meter, calibration software and ControlCAL and have the immediate results of D-Nice's calibration hence my reply above.

it sounds like Jeff will be there and I know D-Nice also goes to Florida several times a year, you could also contact him for a re-cal.. here's his new email.



Anyways, if you do want to start down the path of doing your own calibrations, since this is not the proper Thread for that, how about you PM me and I'll go over all this and any ControlCAL questions you may have.. I will gladly answer your questions.

If you have had 1500-2000 hours or more by now, it's time biggrin.gif

I will stop cluttering up this thread. Thx again for your suggestions and Jeff for the heads up.

Agree 100%! I have uploaded some really nice settings from forum members, but nothing beats having Jeff or another qualified calibrator run his equipment against your set. He'll be at my house on Friday to calibrate my VT50...Can't wait to see him at work again!
post #2640 of 3103
I'm in San Diego looking to get my 65VT50 soon, any recommendations?
