  3. Item: Pioneer BDP-450 bluray player Location: Adelaide Price: $20.00 Item Condition: Average (see below) Reason for selling: Cleanout Payment Method: Pickup Extra Info: I bought this player some time ago second hand. Cosmetically, it's in average condition, with the add little scratch here and thereOne of the HDMI outputs is not working, however, this is easy to get around by using the secondary HDMI output. Great player that's a good upgrade on some of the more budget players out there. Pictures:

  6. Item: Epson EH-TW8200 Projector (white), 3 Pairs of Epson 3D Glasses. Includes Extended Warranty Location: Adelaide SA Price: $600 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal. Extra Info: I purchased this projector along with a new lamp a little over two years ago from Harvey Norman. I purchased and installed a new bulb for the projector in August and it has around 200-300 hours on the new lamp. It developed a fault in June 2018, which was covered under warranty with the Cinema Filter being replaced and the projector receiving a general service and new firmware updates applied. At the time of purchase, I also took out a 5 year extended warranty, so the unit is still under warranty. Also included are 3 pairs of 3D glasses, barely used and in near new condition. Pictures:

  9. Hi all, I will be visiting Canberra in early December (subject to booking numbers) and will be available for calibrations if you're interested in having your TV or Projector professionally calibrated. If you don't already know me, in addition to writing here for Stereonet, I'm also an ISF Certified Calibrator and the owner of Adelaide based clarity audio & video calibration. You can also find some photos of calibrations I have done in the ISF Calibration photos thread If you're interested please send me a PM to register your interest. Regards, Tony O'Brien

    ISF Calibration Photos

    Some shots of a JVC-X7500 projector which I calibrated for a customer. While the picture looked good prior to calibration, the colour balance was tilted strongly towards blue. The picture also didn't have anywhere near as much pop or punch to it. After readjusting the image to fix some geometry errors and fill the screen, panel alignment was redone and the lens refocused. After calibrating the basic user controls, the colour balanced was fixed with greyscale and CMS calibration. A custom gamma setting was then created to maximise the projector's contrast ratio and give the picture some more pop. After calibration the image was sharper and more detailed. Colour reproduction was both natural and convincing. The image also took on an almost 3D like look, as a result of the custom gamma curve and the JVC X-7500's excellent black levels. Customer was very happy and I left to start the process all over again on another JVC projector (X5900).
  12. @shailesh @yamaha_man Not sure if my PM's are getting through. If you haven't received them please let me know.
