Compared to the LaserDisc reviewed in Issue 9, the anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits dramatic improvements in contrast for a more detailed picture. Color fidelity is excellent and fleshtones are naturally rendered. Images are quite sharp throughout, with fine detail nicely rendered. Film grain is detected in some scenes, but source element artifacts are minor. Minor pixelization is apparent, and there is occasional edge enhancement. For those who have seen the LaserDisc, the more refined quality of the DVD should surely please. (Suzanne Hodges)
I read Widescreen Review, because of all the A/V magazines I read, I trust the writers of Widescreen Review to give the most thorough review and honest opinion of any equipment being reviewed. I count on Widescreen Review to keep me informed on any and all new information in the world of home theatre more than any other source. I also base many of my DVD purchases on the review of the picture and sound of a particular DVD. I always look forward to finding Widescreen Review in my mailbox!
