After calibrating my system using Video Essentials (not DVE), my system, when played back in Dolby Digital, sounds pretty damned good. Everything sounds very well balanced. However, when I play a DVD using DTS, it is invariably much too loud in the surrounds. It is too the point of distraction. I have noticed this occurring on every single DTS dvd I have played, but it is most noticeble on discs such as Se7en, Gladiator, and the EE of Lord of the Rings. I almost can't concentrate on the action taking place up front because the surrounds are so distracting. Does anybody know why this occurs, and if there is a way to calibrate my settings for DTS so that the surrounds are more balanced like in DD? I'm using a Rotel RSX-1065 reciever.
