While this Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band concert does not take place in
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture takes you up close and on stage with The Boss, offering more visual detail than can be seen by those 40-somethings singing in the first row. The HD-originated images are sharp and well defined, though details like musical instruments and microphones shimmer and flicker, and aliasing problems are noticed. Colors are rich and natural, with rich black backgrounds. The picture is solid, with no apparent noise or artifacts. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #25 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I want to see product reviews of home theatre equipment that non-millionaires can afford to own. Reading articles about $50,000 home theatre setups is admittedly rather fun but, in practical terms, the info is really useless to me. While Darling Wife and I make a decent living, there's no way we can spend that kind of money on a home theatre. What I also really like and want to see: Practical advice articles that help people who are at least minimally technically competent to assess their needs and assemble a home theatre. That is, a periodic (yearly? twice yearly?) in-depth look at points to consider and equipment to buy to assemble a good high definition home theatre. Ideally, it would examine several total package price points. If you're willing to spend $10,000, here's what we recommend in terms of equipment and how to connect/install them. If your budget is smaller, here's what we recommend. If your budget is somewhat larger than $10,000, do this instead. Yes, I know you have your reference systems section each month, but an explanatory article would be nice, too. Finally, keep us up-to-date on the development of high definition DVDs and DVD players. This is what I'd like to see.
