    I posted this question a few weeks ago, but really didn't get any helpfull answers, I have a modest setup, and am really a newbie to DD 5.1. I have had a pro logic reciever for years now, it is DD ready, it is a Sony. I just upgraded to a Sony DVD player with a built in DD decoder. The problem is, that my front surround speakers are much lower than my center speaker, and my rears. I have checked all the settings, the speaker wire, and book for both. I can't figure out anything, is it supposed to be like this, I still here them, if you disconnect them, you notice the difference, but for example, when someone speaks in the fronts, it suddenly gets lower than the center, or music is very low, in the new DVD of Josie and the Pussycats, you can barely hear the guitars, because they are in the fronts, but if you switch to pro logic, you hear them just fine. Someone else told me to make my other speakers lower than the fronts, and get them all equal, but none of the reciever settings don't work when 5.1 is enabled. Any suggestions.

    I'd recheck the speaker settings in the DVD player's audio setup screen. Yes, I said the player's setup not the receiver. Make sure you've selected all the speakers such that they are active. There should also be speaker channel level controls in the DVD player's audio setup screens. Use those controls to equalize the channel levels while using either the built in tones or more preferably a setup disc.
