Whelp, I would just like to say that Htwaits can add another satisfied customer to umr's list. What he does in nothing short of perfection. The colors before (D's settings), while much better than what I had achieved on my own, were pretty off in comparsion to what I see before me (and Jeffs instruments did in fact show tons of green push, as did my own crappy lil EYEOne). The picture has so much "pop", with detail that just wasn't there before, and the audio, man! Funny, when Jeff was done, he asked where I thought the biggest improvement was, and I could do nothing but grin. I really didn't know where I saw the biggest improvement, as both were so drastic. Now, after watching a few clips from movies that I am familiar with, and I think I know now that the audio is where the LARGEST improvements were made. Everything just sounds "right". So balanced, and crisp. Going back to the video, when Jeff finished up in the living room (we were doing the bedroom setup as well), I popped in Transformers on HD DVD, which oddly enough, Jeff has not seen. Funny, even Jeff couldn't believe his eyes lol, not to mention the audio knocked my socks off (and maybe his, I dunno?).
In the end, this just shows how settings can vary from set to set. While I feel that D's settings are great for those who do not intend on having theri sets calibrated, nothing compares to having it done.
I'll finish off by making this last statement. You know when you have achieved incredible results, when at the end of a demo, you can do nothing but look at each other and laugh.
