9G Pioneer KURO owners HDTVtest forum thread.
« on: 07 February 2013, 12:28:48 PM »

Hi...  :clap:

Just thought it would be interesting to start a 9G Kuro owners thread on this forum. Rather than for just a specific model of the ninth generation Pioneer.

As everyone knows how good the legendary Pioneer Kuro's are (even) to this day. And that isn't going to change any time soon. Hence why these are still held in such esteem around the world from professionals and happy owners alike. So i thought this thread is extremely relevant...

I was always delighted with my 9G. It had it's niggles over the years that shouldn't have been there, that were not :o there on most Kuro plasmas. But for the most part it was stunning to look at given the right sources and material. And that includes standard definition.

A true consumer display one of a kind. And i am happy i have found another much newer one recently. That will hopefully keep me entertained until a new display and resolution technology is properly established.

I calibrated a KRP-500A recently (using the unlockable ISF modes) - the client and I sat gawping at the quality afterwards.

Great displays (clunky user interface aside), but that hardly matters after it's been set up.

Ok here is the service/factory menu basically telling me that my audio is gone. It comes up with a message (power turning off, possible short in speaker cable before switching to standby and flashing blue led five times.  >:(

 I took it to a Pioneer service centre on Wedensday morning and after some tests said they need to order a audio IC chip. There was a (huge) power surge last week. Took out the surge protector but only the audio got it so lucky i guess.

Nice pic Rob and thanks for the tip btw.

Plasma black at it's ANSI peak imho with the 500's. Unless we do see a 0MLL plasma but i doubt it. If that was to happen OLED would lose it's appeal (and) value extremely quickly. Which would be bad for business considering it's in it's infancy.

I grew to like the white one i must admit. What you think i should do shagger mate. Buy side speakers or a soundbar ?...

I always liked the look of the side speakers on the 500A. But on the m these won't sound the same as the m doesn't have any onboard audio trickery like the A. Just treble and bass and that's it for obvious reasons. And in the past whenever i turned off the trickery it just sounded flat compared to even having the stuff on medium or even low settings. Side speakers and swivel stand are part of the package/sale unfortunatley when i sell it on.
