Yes, but not quite as you have phrased it.
Their profiles are for average results. Eg, the average LG OLED C9, the average LG OLED C8, etc. These will give you "very good results".
If you get a spectrophotometer you can create a profile for Siran77's exact LG OLED C9, or any other TV you have to calibrate. Only this way, will you get "the most accurate
ps. It's not easy unfortunately. Just as you thought you'd got your spectro to get the best results for your exact panel, someone will rock up and point out that you have bought a "cheap" meter in the C6/X-Rite,
, and that it's not as accurate as a professional meter, and you've been having fun playing at calibration but you don't actually have "the most accurate

your spectro purchase, which you thought would be worth it; it may seem mendacious but it's not, the people here are generally great and I've learned a lot over a long time. But be ready for it to always happen just after
