I think the main thrust of their viewpoint was that any
enhancement is "over-enhanced" because it's altering the image versus a "reference" device.
Personally, I'm much more interested in a "pleasing" image (to me) than a "reference" image. I could really care less what the "artist's intention" was. I want to enjoy it the way I want to enjoy it.
For the same reason, I calibrate my projector, and then generally add a touch more saturation (except in flesh tones). I'm most certainly running with "less fidelity" than when I calibrated, but it's more pleasing to me, and that's all that I give two ...ummm... cents about.
Frankly, with a projector like my LCOS that doesn't have 100% perfect convergence, one could argue that this display technology by its nature "artificially softens" the image, and that the Darblet could help restore that "fidelity".
Not an argument I want to get in to, I just want to see if the Darblet makes the image more pleasing to me.
