Your English is good enough

Does that 7500 have a TBC + the JVC filters? (filters = Picture modes, Stabilizer, audio)
From what I can remember, the 388E and 7500E are almost the same.

The 7500E is not listed because I've never gotten confirmation that it has all filters and TBC. Some reports say yes, some no. So the safe thing to do was not include it on the list for now.

I have SR-S388E. Has a very good TBC that also defeats copy protection to allow direct to DVD recording of such material, however filters are limited and no sharpness slider. You have a three position switch, but no real noise reduction. It also boosts the chroma more than other VCR's - sometimes too much.

It is very good for older off air faded recordings but not for thinks with solid strong colour like cartoons.

Its part of my kit, but not my main unit, and I would not suggest it as such as being better than the 7500, which does have filters.

there is EDIT SELECT menu option for picture quality, sharpness and filters. Take a look.

All, apart from OFF degrade the picture. Dub just adds more sharpness and noise, Edit does similar. It was intended for editing semi pro SVHS videos down to VHS which is why it boosts. This boost can be useful but more often than not it's just oversaturated.
