    I'm not at your house either without any knowledge of your setup. My set-up is 5.1.2 setup with SVS Prime tower and Prime center speakers as my main three speakers along with Polk surround speakers and subwoofer along with Klipsch Dolby Atmos speakers and a Marantz 6013 receiver. Also, I'm not the only one saying I didn't have to adjust my volume from my normal Blu-ray viewing. That is all I'm saying as I don't have any bone in this argument nor any reason to doubt what others are experiencing in their home theaters.

    In my setup, comparing the level of "Sweet Charity" after watching a couple of scenes from "Oblivion", I found about a 4db boost was needed over my usual listening level of -10 on my Marantz 8802A.

    I didn't keep the French Blu to compare. I created a Blu-Ray that normalized the sound so that the loudest point was as loud as it could be without distortion, and the rest of the track was amplified accordingly.

    Now to re-do that work and add back the entr'acte and exit music with the Kino video master...

    Well like listening to cds and lps sound often has to be adjusted even within a single recording due to wide dynamic ranges. I listen to a lot of classical orchestral.
    Oklahoma sounded fine to me. Noticed nothing unusual about the sound level.

    Also we had earlier been talking about overtures and I pointed out the entire overture of My Fair Lady was at the beginning of the film itself during the title sequence. The titles just started later using the same continuing images. I always wondered who designed that sequence as it is one of my favorites. The gentleman Wayne Fitzgerald just died at 89 and it was in his obituary. He also designed Days of Heaven a truly stunning title sequence and I thought well that makes sense.

    I also listen to a lot of classical orchestral music, and opera and chamber music. Never had the volume problem I encountered with Oklahoma.
