Thought I let everyone know the results of my calibration today with Chad B.

I have a Definitve Tech SSA-50, Prosub 1000, Pioneer VSX-32,Pioneer 151.

I was told not much can be done with a sounbar calibration, This was proven wrong today by Chad B.

Meeting Chad was a pleasure, He is very professional and polite. I was very impressed with his audio experience and knowledge . He explained everything to me. He took the time to talk to me before he started to find out what I like in sound quality and what type of material I listen too.

He spent over 3 hours reading,testing and tweaking my audio setup.

All I can say is I am totally impressed. The sound space is tighter,clearly and fuller after he was done. I know he was limited with a soundbar but he made a huge improvement.

Look him up if your looking for a audio or video calibration....

Impressive system and I always had the impression that Chad was top notch just from his reviews of equipment.

You are lucky that you actually have a true 5-ch soundbar for Chad to start with. Makes calibration a reasonable option as compared with all of the simulated surround units. (like the one I now own or the others that have filtered through my hands)

I'm not sure whether I will be replacing my current plasma TV this year or next, but Cleveland plasma with a calibration by Chad prior to shipping is very high on my list of retailers.

Calibration does not make sense for most consumer grade soundbars, but in the case of the DefTech, it would certainly be a worthwhile addition. The DT's are some of only a few true 5-ch soundbars on the market.
