I found an ISF calibration service in my town, he is level 2 certified.
EDIT: He's retired... He suggested using a disk to get 75% there. He doesn't know of any other certified ISF in our area. So I asked him about the local demand for cals. Seems like a fun job if there's enough demand.  Think

Trying to watch F1 practice with the stock color setting is tough on the eyes. Flourescent Pastels!  Shocked

Wow, those look awesome! Congrats Michael! Long decision process on that one. I think you considered every possibility.

Seems like the speakers are designed for tube amps, so the Sachs amp would be the obvious choice to match your preamp. If you want the ease of SS, don't skimp, as it is easy to lose refinement with "high value" transistor amps.

Congratulations! What amp will you be using? As I recall, you have a Don Sachs unit as well, right?

Nice speakers. At a quick glance they kind of remind me of Devore Fidelity speakers. I bet they will sound nice with some kind of OTL or low watt tube amplifier or integrated.

Well, it's finally happened. After a solid three years of searching and auditioning hundreds of speakers, I decided to stop chasing shadows and commit to a new pair of speakers. They are Daedalus Audio Apollos.  http://www.daedalusaudio.com/Apollo.html

Lou debuted them at Axpona last month. Last week, I drove up to Lou's workshop to listen to the Apollos, Argos, and Poseidon speakers. Wow. What an amazing time!

Honestly, I was equally thrilled with all three of the speakers, but the Apollos will probably fit my Taiwan living room better than the others.

I haven't even paid for them yet and my attention has already wandered over to which amplifier to power these puppies.  Duh!

What is a DArbee?  Embarassed

Oh, I see it's a video processor

Interesting!

I got a long way to go to get current. Learning Genie GUI is enough for now. I miss my Tivo series 2   ROFLMAO

Switching to 4x larger screen takes some adjusting mentally. It is a little overstimulating.

Next to having your picture professionally ISF calibrated, the next best thing IMO is a Darbee Darblet. Then replace the wallwart SMPS with a Meanwell tabletop SMPS which made a huge processing improvement in my Darbee on a Panny ST560 plasma (their last year of making them). Or maybe an Ifi Low Noise AC/DC adapter which wasn't available when I got my Meanwell.

Cheers,
Robin

Thanks Robin. There's no external PS, just 2 conductor lampcord PC.

I found some calibration suggestions online. I will try those, if not good enough maybe hire a calibration. How do I find local calibration service?

To be clear, I was talking about replacing the Darbee power supply. With the supplied wall wart PS, I could only to to 55-60% processing before seeing over processing in the picture . But with a tabletop Meanwell, I'm up to 90%. I likened using a Darbee Darblet in picture quality to comparing a component video picture to HDMI, it's that stark. But you'd really want a calibrated picture to start with.

I had also forgotten about that.

Acetylcholine is good for brain power, but plain choline (besides making acetylcholine) also fixes fatty liver, and all the problems that go with that.

Here you go steve!

Acetylcholine might help your short term memory. Most people are deficient in choline because we don't eat liver and eggs anymore. Choline alfoscerate (aka Alpha GPC) is a choline supplement that easily turns into acetylcholine.

Rich, you are The man. You came thru in the clutch. Yes, that is it. Can't remember any more superlatives.  ROFLMAO

Thanks for the heads up on choline. I had also forgotten about that.

Cheers
Steve
