Good point here baddgsx. I specifically mentioned to Kevin that I think most people are too conservative with their sharpness settings. Yes, you can clearly see some ringing on test patterns
when the sharpness is set to "0", where I like it.
But I challenged Kevin to find any artifacts such as edge enhancement on normal programming or BD material. We looked and didn't find it on the material we saw...even at closer than normal viewing distances. I almost never see any evidence of these issues that are the result of a setting of '0'. But hey, each to his own.
An important point here is that Pioneer's implementation of 'sharpness' on these panels is much more conservative than many other manufacturers. Going from a minimum setting (or a -13 setting) to 'midpoint' on many other panels will bring about a far
greater change in apparent sharpness and some nasty EE.
So I think Pioneer was wise to keep these adjustments conservative.
