Compared to the previously released, anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD, this new Special Edition DVD appears to be virtually identical. As was the case with the previous disc, the dark transfer delivers excellent shadow delineation and contrast. Images are sharp and detailed, with pleasing clothing and facial textures and definition. Color fidelity is superb, with crisp beautiful color that seems to pop from the screen; especially when vibrant hues are contrasted by the deepest blacks. The picture is quite clean throughout, with no distracting noise and only occasional artifacts. (Suzanne Hodges)
While on vacation at my uncle's house, I was introduced to WSR. My instinct told me it was just another A/V magazine. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down, and I knew this was a keeper. The number one question I receive at work is which is the best sounding movie. With the help of your movie reviews, I now have people calling my cell just to find out which new release sounds the best. Your reviews are always on target! Your product reviews have increased my knowledge beyond expectations. I know that when someone asks me about a new product on the market, all I have to do is wait for my next issue to show up. Your philosophy on sound systems has totally changed the way I go about selling and setting up surround sound systems in my customerís houses. Thanks to WSR I've been able to increase my sales, knowledge, and gain customer satisfaction. In my pursuit for sound perfection WSR is one of my valued assets.
