Introduction to the Spears and Munsil HD Benchmark Setup and Test Disc - Version 2

Readers of Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity are likely familiar with the names Stacey Spears and Don Munsil. They authored the Secrets DVD Benchmark and brought to light issues like Chroma Upsampling Errors, as well as our recent HDMI Benchmark for Blu-ray players. They also authored the Spears and Munsil HD Benchmark Blu-ray, which was included with the Oppo Blu-ray players and so many people have a copy. Now they have gone back and released the 2nd Edition of the HD Benchmark, with far more tests and features. They sent along a finished disc so I could do an overview of it and how you can utilize the new features.

Be sure to check out the video interview with Stacey and Don, hosted by Scott Wilkinson on TWiT TV.
