I wanted to chime in on this. I have to agree with Eric in this case. I just picked up the Toshiba HD-A2 last week and along with turning off DRC, Noise Reduction, Detail Enhancer and Edge Enhancer, I noticed something else interesting. When I ran the Avia color and hue adjustments test, with my last DVD player I had to crank the color down below 40 and make a slight correction on the hue adjustment (to green)
When I ran the same tests with the HD-A2, outputting 1080i, I found that I could crank the color setting up to 55, and set the hue to neutral (0). When I moved onto the sharpness test pattern, that is when I discovered that turning off all of the 'enhancement' circuitry made a significant impact on the image. The 'wow' factor for HD was jaw dropping, even on a set that I am getting replaced with another 60XBR2 next week (geometry problems)
After two months of experience with this set, I am finding the better the source material and the better the equipment source itself, the more you need to lower or even eliminate these 'enhancements'.
At first it was tough to resist incorporating all of the bells and whistles this TV offers. Through time, I found little need for them as it seemed to lower the PQ. YMMV. Thanks...Will
