I received the set yesterday in the mail after winning it on eBay. What a great looking set it is! My happiness turned to partial dismay when I started watching "The Empire Strikes Back", I saw a lot of what I call sprinkles in the background of the picture. If I remember correctly one of the signs of poor quality control during the manufacturing process is the exhibiting of these "sprinkles" in the picture. I guess the "famous" THX processing is not all it is heralded to be! I would be very interested in hearing from other owners of this LD set. Do you see this artifact in your disks, or am I just unlucky with the set I won. I've yet to watch the "Star Wars--P4" or "The Return of the Jedi" LDs, so I cannot comment on whether they exhibit this problem.
