    I'm going to move this post to the "Display Devices" fourm where you will find lots of people who have had this done. (I've never heard anyone be disappointed.)

    Nice looking HT by the way. But you need to somehow blank out that small window up front if you watch during the day.

    Hi Bob
    Thanks for the move. I was thinking it should be moved.
    Tanks for kind words on my ht yes it is a Little bright site and sound. Drapes and large area rug + padding, two tapestry's and 2in egg foam behind them. Should do the trick. All on order. I am waiting to get that dun before I consider ISF tech.

    Brian,

    In regards to having your plasma ISF'd, it depends: what would you like out of the experience? Are you dissatisfied with the picture now?

    In having your plasma ISF'd, assuming you've done a bit of calibration via AVIA or VE yourself, you'll mostly be having your display's gray scale corrected - made more even and accurate to NTSC standards. In contrast, CRT-based displays, especially RPTVs, have more to tweak (focus, geometry, over-scan and other mechanical tweaks). Thus, it's very common that RPTV owners rave about the picture quality difference after a full-scale calibration. You should keep your expectations realistic about a plasma calibration - the difference, depending on how you've calibrated your display - *might* not be so substantial looking.

    I'm one of the several people I know who were not overwhelmed by an ISF calibration of my plasma. BUT...there are plenty of others who really do like the results. So, it's up to you if having a perfectly calibrated gray scale is worth the money. If you have no problem affording the ISF calibration I'd say try it out. At least you'll have an "accurate" picture setting to be employed whenever you wish.

    Tanks Rich
    My mane concern is my surround sound.The B&K ref 50 has way to many tweaks. One other thing I read on some forum not sure which, is that the plasma might last longer set properly.
    PS love your web page.[​IMG]
