In the setup menu, it only allows the audio Dynamic Range Compression to be turned ON or on AUTO, not OFF. Judging by the description in the manual, the only dolby tracks that won't be compressed are dd 1.0 and 2.0 tracks. It might be psychological, but i swear the 5.1 tracks sound really flat. Is there any way around this? I'll have to get another dvd player if i can't.
