Home cinema calibration service

Does anyone know of any where that offers a home cinema calibration service?

Or has anyone had any experiences of using one?

Im pretty happy that my TV is tweaked to a good standard using the THX optimizer.

Its the audio side of things I would like to look at. It sounds pretty good as it is, but im just wondering if there is any more I can do to improve it. I havnt tweaked with it that much, and just thought that someone might offer the service that could bring the best out of it. Id hate to think im restricting its capabilities.

I have an Onkyo TX-SR875 amp, the DALI Ikon 5.1 Speaker package and a 52" Samsung LCD TV.

Thanks in advance.

We've just produced a '10 ways to enhance your home cinema sound' guide that will appear in the Ultimate Guide to New Technology (on sale Dec 6), if you can wait 'til then! Lots of tips on how to calibrate your surround sound.

From experience, the auto set-up on the Onkyo gets things almost as accurate as anyone could want, provided you take the time to take as many measurement sequences as possible, weighting them to your favourite listening position by taking, say, three measurement runs there and only one at each alternative position.

Only probs I had was that the rear channels tend to be set a bit high, and the subwoofer too, but you can easily tweak these down by ear.
