By default, Brilliant Color is on 10 for all but Reference, which is set to 5. Also, Dynamic Black is Off for all but Cinema, which is On. Lamp is on Bright for all.
All other settings at default (untouched).
The table above has the settings used in Mike's calibration. Settings sent in by a reader Chintan, that were originally posted on the AVSforum by Steve Withers, in this case provide much better color. Note that Mike worked with the default of 5 on Brilliant Color, for the settings above. These new settings below, however use Brilliant Color of 1 (minimum). In this case, the end result is much better color accuracy with these new settings. I recommend using those. -art
