I was blown away like it was a new set. Its by far the best bluray for video and audio that can be bought period. Its no contest.
I've been messing around today going back and forth between your new settings and the previous ones. I'm liking these new settings more and more. We watched Gladiator tonight and though skin tones seemed to have red oversaturation at times, this was usually indoor scenes shot in candlelight which would make sense. Outdoor scenes looked for the most part very natural.
An even better test blu-ray is Jeff Beck's Live at Ronnie Scotts. The track when Imogene Heap comes out to sing has always looked funky with skin tones showing very little red tone and almost looking pasty. Well not anymore. These new settings seem to have corrected that enough to where it's pleasing to watch.
I also took Toy Story 3 for a spin and though it is an animated film, the colors looked dazzling. In scene #1 when the Martians come to pick up Mr and Mrs Potato head from the train, the pink Corvette actually had a noticable pink metallic paint job that I hadn't noticed before.
I'm still playing with these and am still slightly troubled by the oversaturation of red, predominately showing up in skin tones looking slightly orange at times. But in many ways they are the best yet and I think I'll be sticken with 'em for now.......... at least until Mike again tinkers out some new and improved settings.
