Ok quick question in real world HT use what is the best compression setting to use for dynamic compression on your reciever? I realize that Max runs full dynamic range and is exactly as it was recorded, then you have STD which seems to make the volume a little more manageable where you have a lot of quiet and then load scenes. and then MIN which seems to make everything quiet and is great for watching stuff late at night etc where you dont wanna crank it up. It seems though that when I have set to max so I'm not losing a thing and I tend to have a hard time hearing dialog and so I of course turn it up but then something loud will happen that damn near blows me out of my couch. With STD it seems to regulate this a little better for me and I'm not having to reach for my remote alot less while watching a movie. Prime example my wife and I sat down to watch Lilo & Stich last night and I had it set to MAX as usual and it made for some very loud scenes so I changed the compression to std and it seemed to make the soundtrack a little more regulated and scenes like the chase scene at the end of the movie were not hugely overpowering but still sounded great in relation to the movie. So basically I'm wondering what some other peoples views on this are and what settings you use.
