I have the same Mits as you. Can you be more specific about the noticable improvements?
It's been months since I spent more money than I should on home audio/video. My wife is worried so I need to drop a thou or two so she stops worring and resumes hitting me with a frying pan.
I have the HDQ for my system, I also stock a DVI and HDP to sell to calibration customers. The HDQ is recommended if you have S-video and/or Composite sources (SD cable/sat, VCR, Laser disc, etc). It adds a 3D comb filter for S-video and Composite inputs. The HDP has a larger processor than the DVI and will output 1080p.
There are so many things improved:
Currently every thing is going 1080i via DVI.
Overscan adjustment and image centering for every input device
4 complete memories for every input (Day/Night modes, etc.)
Greatly improved picture quality from S-Video SD TiVo.
Color decoder adjustments for each input.
New 2/5/11 point Grayscale adjustments a "per-input-memory" calibration, including luminance control to adjust/correct gamma. (advanced ISF service menu)
Y/C Delay adjustment
And there is more.
I haven't had this nearly long enough to reap a,ll of its potential, there is just so much that can be done.
This is really everything you wanted in a TV and more. I always went into the bedroom to watch SD TiVo on a 15-year old Sony 27 CRT. Now I enjoy watching it on the Mits. And I have the full picture.
Lumagen only sells through qualified dealers/installers, they want to be sure the consumer gets the full benefit of their product. Dealers are supposed to sell in a geographical area they can service/support and provide calibration.
