Sure SD look soft on my monitor. It also look soft on my projector. But when I watch it upscaled on my 32inch LCD in my livingroom it good enough. And Im definietly more PQ fanatic then the mainstrem public. So when I cant motivate going beyond DVD on that setup, how will J6P do it?
There is no way I can address this. If you are happy with your setup then what would you expect me to say?
I have used a rather cheap 4X3, 27" CRT display, using composite video
to compare HD source (converted to SD) to the same source but the SD version. Even at 8' viewing distance there is a noticeable quality difference to some “Average” viewers. There are some that can not see the difference between VHS and DVD or HD.
That was my point. And it wasnt because they were 2 format, it was because there were 2 format noone cared about. CD was good enough. MP3 came as a fresh restart because it gave people what they wanted (single tracks and easy ways of distr.)
You are stating this as fact. You need to back that up with proof, otherwise you are in violation of AVS rules.
You may want to research the “Walkman” (audio cassette) reign during the CD period.Now back to topic please!!
