The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits image quality that is quite lovely. Colors are easy-on-the-eyes, with accurate fleshtones, well-balanced hues and deep blacks. Images are sharp and detailed, with good contrast and shadow delineation. Overall the picture is very nicely rendered, with little edge enhancement and occasionally noticed shimmering in the finer details. At times, film grain is revealed from the source element, but overall the image is solid. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #35 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
While on vacation at my uncle's house, I was introduced to WSR. My instinct told me it was just another A/V magazine. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down, and I knew this was a keeper. The number one question I receive at work is which is the best sounding movie. With the help of your movie reviews, I now have people calling my cell just to find out which new release sounds the best. Your reviews are always on target! Your product reviews have increased my knowledge beyond expectations. I know that when someone asks me about a new product on the market, all I have to do is wait for my next issue to show up. Your philosophy on sound systems has totally changed the way I go about selling and setting up surround sound systems in my customerís houses. Thanks to WSR I've been able to increase my sales, knowledge, and gain customer satisfaction. In my pursuit for sound perfection WSR is one of my valued assets.
