That's really great to hear Nick. It was a pleasure spending time with you - calibrating, chatting about calibration, and waxing lyrical about the genius that is Hristo Stoichkov!A little update post calibration with the masterful help of @Canary_Jules
I understood the premise on which the benefits of calibration stand in principle prior to his visit yesterday, but it was great to get a much wider perspective on the matter.
Unit variation is very much a thing that renders calibration at the factory less potent a tool. I am really happy that I am now able to stop tinkering with all of the picture settings available, while getting a more realistic image across the different playback modes.
A job truly well done, it was very interesting to learn more about what makes TVs tick the way they do and what some of the intricate variables are that affect picture quality. Such a great chap too!
I love my 65" GX even more now.
