CD AUDIO PLAYBACK
As a DVD player, the PlayStation 2 had the best overall audio and video measurements in this group. The CD frequency response did roll off sharply a little short of 20 kHz, but this won't be audible with most program material. On the video side, the 0-IRE setup level is a hint that you should calibrate your TV for proper black level (use a DVD test disc). And, as with the Neon player, the -7-IRE maximum white level may be meant to minimize the possibility of burn-in with picture tubes, which is more of a concern when a TVis used to display computer graphics. - D.R.
