    Basic ISF calibration
    Mechanical focus
    Lining the interior of the cabinet with Duvatyne
    Geometry with grid
    Mitsubishi red push fix
    $525
    Any thoughts on this? It seems fairly reasonable to me given the amount of work that needs to be done (7-9 hours), but I wanted to get some other opinions. Thanks.

    Very reasonable price too. Lining takes the longest.
    Make sure the electronic focus is there too.
    Red Push fix ... make sure that they have the yeringto attenuators as well.

    Sounds pretty reasonable to me. I spent $450 and didn't get either a mechanical focus or the Duvetyne lining from my ISF guy. [​IMG]

    Kevin,
    That's the best price I've seen so far. Are you paying a local ISF Tech. or does your price include travel expenses?
    Thanks

    Signature? I don't need no stinkin' signature.

    Make sure he understands that it is red push and not a red tint that can be easilyu solved with a grayscale cal.
    This gets confused far too often.

    Fantastic price! I would agree with someone else who stated that electronic focus should be included. However, I don't like geometry being set with grids. The grids tend to mask too much and my experience has been that a good ISF tech. can actually do a better job without it if he has a good critical eye and is willing to take the time to do it. But all-in-all this is a great price!
