The anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD shows nicely balanced colors with natural-looking fleshtones. The image generally has a soft look, with some smearing of the details, taking away from the realism of the picture. Black levels are somewhat milky, but details in the shadows are generally rendered nicely. Edge enhancement is minor and does not become much of a distraction. Pixel breakup is also noticeable from time to time, and source element artifacts can also be recognized. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #9 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
WSR is a terrific resource for anyone interested in keeping up with the state of the art in home theatre. It's the only publication I know of that dedicates not only significant space to discussing upcoming trends, but considerable time and effort is spent pushing those trends towards realization. The home theatre cruise, Joe Kane's technical discussions, D-Theater, and in the latest issue, the movement towards establishing a surround sound recording standard are just a few examples of WSR's leadership. Greg Rogerís review of the Sharp XV-Z12000 made me want to run out and buy it, but last year I bought the Sony HS10 projector (sight unseen) purely on the strength of his thorough, detailed review. I have been very happy with my purchase. It is impossible for me to evaluate all of the pros and cons of a piece of equipment by looking at it in a home theatre shop. It just takes too long to become familiar with operational quirks and to judge how things might be different in my home than in the retail environment. I have bought other expensive equipment based largely on your reviews. WSR is to be commended for dedicating the space in its pages to such thorough reporting. Lastly, your Web Site is topnotch. I use it regularly to keep up with industry news and to look up past equipment reviews. It serves as my filing cabinet for a wealth of HT information. Keep up the great work.
