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!
Happy New Year everyone.
