Here's the link to download the .pdf file from the results of the audience's ballots of the two shoot-out event days.

Attached are all the first set of Pre and Post calibration reports in pdf format. Contrast ratio pdf included as well.
Thanks for posting.
Yes, we had my personal PRO-141FD at the shoot-out and everyone agreed it would have won if we permitted the audience to vote on it.

However, the new Elite delivers a much brighter and much lower MLL so to say the 141FD would have won is a good guess, but certainly not a shoe-in.

What setting is the 141 on? ISF Day? ISF Night? Pure?
Good to know. I know the Kuros can be calibrated higher than 35 ftls. So if they are all set to 35 ftls, then there would be no brightness differential.

I believe the Pioneer Elite Kuro 141 can be calibrated to a black level of .0005 ftls, with the Sharp Elite to .0004 ftls?

The Sharp Elite can be calibrated to a retina-searing light output (if you find that necessary), a .0001 edge in black level, and 3D (which wasn't a judging criteria at the shootout).

The Pioneer Elite Kuro has better gamma, grayscale tracking, and color accuracy than the Sharp Elite, and no off-axis issues.

IMO, the Pioneer Elite Kuro is still tops (but no longer available).
