    84.9% own a Receiver/pre-processor with surround-sound decoder
    86.4% own surround sound speakers

    13.8% intend to purchase Digital high-definition TV (HDTV)
    13.6% intend to purchase Surround sound speakers
    (within the next 6 months)

    89.9% selected Better picture quality
    91.4% selected Better sound quality
    70.8% selected Extra material included on DVD discs such as deleted scenes or behind-the-scenes footage
    (reason in importance for buying a DVD player)

    26.1% own 1 to 5 "classic movies"
    31.4% own More than 25 "classic movies"

    80.9% selected DVD is released in its original theatrical aspect ratio only.
    00.7% selected DVD is released in pan-and-scan format.
    74.6% selected DVD is released with both the original audio track as well a remastered stereo or surround-sound track such as Dolby® Digital or DTS® 5.1.
    73.0% selected DVD has bonus features, such as director or actor commentaries, original theatrical trailers, behind-the- scenes, interviews, etc.

    (when purchasing a "classic" movie)


    This is just some of the highlights from the member input some of the questions asked.

    Thanks to everyone that has participated. Your input is and will be appreciated.

    Parker: That survey title was kind of misleading, don't you think?

    Parker, thanks for sharing the data. Now, how many members routinely beg for food as a result of their destructive habit? [​IMG]
