Fidelity is quite good in the Dolby Digital 2.0-channel stereo soundtrack (with its almost unheard of 448 kbps data rate for two channels), although dialogue can sound unnaturally forward, and the mix is not very invigorating.

Reason #132 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
As an owner of Whole House Audio & Video Inc. (WHAV), I need to stay informed on the latest DVD and DVHS releases and keep an objective opinion on how well they perform.
