Hello all. I've been watching DVDs for about a year now (received a player from my wife for Father's Day last year, bless her!). I don't have an elaborate HT system set up -- just the sound out lines running from my Sony DVD player to my 15-year-old Technics receiver, and the video line running straight to my 4-year old Zenith 25" (no S-video). Anyway, we bought and watched the SE of TPB yesterday. This movie has a special meaning for us: it's the movie we saw on our first date. Previously, we had owned a VHS copy which was bad even by VHS standards: fuzzy picture, bad sound, etc. I was blown away by the picture quality compared to the VHS edition. Many of you, I know owned the LD or the previous bare bones DVD of this movie. But it was such a joy to see the film in nearly pristine, sharp quality, and to hear it in great stereo. This movie alone made the purchase of the player worth it -- to experience one of our favorite movies in quality image and sound. I can't speak for the more technically-knowledgeable of the HTF crowd, but for me, the $20 I dropped at Worst, er, Best Buy was a bargain. I do however, have one peeve with this (and a few other discs): No English Dolby Surround (2 channel). I realize I may be asking for a bit of flaming here, but not every DVD owner has a 5.1-ready system (or DTS). I wish the studios would offer the 2-channel option for optimum play for those of us with "lesser" systems. Anyway, wanted to share my joy of owning the film (with some great extras) in such a great format. ------------------ "The more we think we know about, the greater the unknown." --Rush, "Mystic Rhythms"
