What part of Indiana do you hail from? I actually live in Illinois, but on the state line between. I lived in Terre Haute most of my life until moving 10 mi away in Dennison IL. I worked for CBS Records and Tapes from 76' to 81' in their tape duplication facility and currently working for Sony on their DVD and CD copy-control. I took a couple of classes in ISF calibration and own a Sencore P403 signal generator, so perform ISF calibration occasionally.
Welcome to the site. I know you'll find a lot of useful info here.
I live in Wabash, IN. I'd love to take some classes so I could do my own calibrations but with the money involved + travel and where I live I doubt I could make any money at doing other peoples sets around here. Gregg Lowen is the one who got me interested in isf stuff and I was going to take one of his classes, (he's doing THX certification along with isf stuff)...but with these difficult times, I doubt that it's in the cards any time soon.
I know what you mean. I did my classes just before CES when it was in Indy a few years ago. I had just gotten laif off and was looking for a new career. The class was two full days and was roughly $1000. I'm into the ausio stuff as well. Been a self-proclaimed Audiophile for some time. I have good gear, just not the "cost-no-object" lines. It's a very enjoyable, fulfilling hobby. Enjoy.
Thanks guys, this site seems to have a wealth of knowledge pouring from every direction. I love looking at the creations in the "DIY" section. There are some very talented people hanging out in here. All in all, seems like a very good group of people. I'm glad I found this place!
