    I jsut read here: http://www.dvddemystified.com/dvdfaq.html#1.1
    DVD video is usually encoded from digital studio master tapes to MPEG-2 format. The encoding process uses lossy compression that removes redundant information (such as areas of the picture that don't change) and information that's not readily perceptible by the human eye. The resulting video, especially when it is complex or changing quickly, may sometimes contain visual flaws, depending on the processing quality and amount of compression. At average video data rates of 3.5 to 5 Mbps (million bits/second), compression artifacts may be occasionally noticeable. Higher data rates can result in higher quality, with almost no perceptible difference from the master at rates above 6 Mbps.
    It's that last sentence that confirms my allegations that Sony (like ps2, and their dvd players) or full of sh*t.

    I, for one, will let my eyes and ears be the judge.

    We don't know yet what, if any, the benefits of the "superbits" encodings. The first discs will not be available for at least a few weeks. We'll see then.

    I notice artifacts all the time, now that I moved up to a 47" HDTV. [​IMG]
