    I happen to think the video looks really good on the SE. Maybe if the image is really huge, then problems get magnified I suppose. I am using a 53 inch Sony and looks solid.

    The audio is first rate and one of the best mixes ever recorded for a dvd. Both the Dolby Digital and DTS mixes are terrific. If my memory is correct, the Dolby mix has a sronger bass presence, while the DTS mix is a little more detailed. Either way will bring a grin on your face. [​IMG]

    Let us know what your findings are Shane.

    The video on the SE is good and the audio is even better. I haven't listened to this since getting new front speakers and a sub, so I'll have to do that.

    I thought the disc was OK but nothing special. Video quality is fairly good but still doesn't look that great. Audio is OK (with barely any difference between the DTS and DD tracks) but I remember comparing it to my old AC-3 LaserDisc which had a stronger, more 'weighty' feel to the sound.
