The anamorphically enhanced and windowboxed 1.66:1 DVD exhibits a picture that looks quite good for its age. Colors are a bit dated, but generally rich, with balanced fleshtones. Blacks are slightly weak throughout. Film grain and source element artifacts are evident, and can seem a bit excessive at times. Though a bit grimy and lacking a smooth, natural appearance, the picture is otherwise pleasing throughout. There is some edge enhancement detected in the picture, but its presence is not excessive.

Reason #92 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review is the only home theatre magazine that puts the reader first. All magazines must cater to advertisers to stay in business, but at WSR you never feel that this article or this review was generated because advertising needed a little boost right now. WSR also provides the depth that I like in its reporting and analysis. I still have every copy that I purchased and that's testament to my feeling of the statue of coverage of equipment and movies for the home movie enthusiast. The series on building the Holosonic Home Theatre was very thorough, and Iím currently using it as I build a new home with a theatre room that will closely resemble the one at your editorial facilities. Some of us do truly appreciate your dedication to doing it right. Thanks for producing an excellent magazine.
