    Bryan Adams: Live At The Budokan DVD Review
    SRP: £19.99

    Picture

    Originally filmed for Japanese Television the image is surprisingly presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic ratio. The picture does tend to suffer a little from looking soft, but there is a good amount of detail on show and the muted colour palette looks natural. Overall this is a very good image with no signs of edge enhancement or pixilation problems.

    Sound

    Presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby 2.0, the soundmix is very dynamic with good bass extension and surround panning. The front three channels offer an excellent soundfield which is wide and very detailed with the surrounds carrying ambience and crowd effects in good measure.
