    If this is true, it isn't good news! Gordon, have you heard anything?

    For the benefit of those reading this thread only I copy what I said on another one:

    What Pioneer is telling you is not totally wrong and untrue. I have spoken in detail with one of their engineers in a recent exhibition and he did show me references to at least two customers complaints in US where after ISF calibration performance was worse. It looks like that a lot has to do with the training and in depth knowledge ISF have on each model. With respect I recall Gordon earlier this year said he has not done a Pio 433HDE before and he had to check things himself... ( I did not go ahead with the service at that time because I could not afford the cost ).

    Now what Pioneer is doing is working on ISF Certifications for the various models and this has started in US and Canada. At this time the 434 and 504 models we have here are not yet covered.
