The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a dated picture that is quite nicely rendered, and is a nice improvement over the LaserDisc reviewed in Issue 22. Images exhibit good sharpness, detail and clarity, with nicely rendered contrast and shadow delineation. Colors are well balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. At times, the warm hues appear slightly smeared. Overall, the picture exhibits good depth and definition. There is some edge enhancement noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #51 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I feel that your magazine has a nice balance of high-end and mid-range audio equipment. I've purchased some equipment after reading some of your reviews and found that they work just like the way you said. I no longer need any more equipment to purchase, but I've taken a two-year subscription because of your DVD reviews, which I find top notch. I find the picture and sound quality reviews important to me. I also read the equipment reviews, which I enjoy because you never know when a piece of equipment will need to be replaced. Keep up the good work.
