It's not really a TBC by strict definition. The term "TBC" is abused by marketers. But th Toshiba has some decent filters. I would only go for one of the XS series machines. The DRW2 is pretty old, isn't it? Those old ones had serious IRE issues.

Black level is IRE. In layman's terms, bad IRE means the color is washed, the video is too bright, and black are muddy gray. I like Toshiba players, but I prefer JVC recorders.
