Newbie question 2.0. One of the greatest irritations in watching some DVDs, is the way the sound is incorporated in a movie. When I play Kill Bill (the worst offender) with a normal audio for speech, the score knocks you out of your seat. I actually have to sit with the remote in hand, in order to make sound adjustments. I don't seem to recall having this problem with the old VHS format. Still using the standard TV speakers and not going through a seperate receiver. Player is a Panny A112U. Upgrades for TV and player are planned for early '07. Is there hope for the future, or is this a grin and bear situation.
