    Sup All ::

    Quick question regarding my Onkyo 601 Receiver. I've had it for about two years now and absolutely loved every minute of using it.

    Something I've always wondered but never knew much about is, when I start a movie in Dolby Digital EX 5.1/6.1 or DTS. "Dialogue Normal - or + 4" always shows up before a movie plays on the LCD screen of my reciever. Is there a way I can change this so the dialogue is louder? I sometimes feel that my dialogue in the movie is softer than the rest of the volume of the movie. Is this due to my center speaker, or the "Dialogue Normal -/+" thing.

    Thanks

    -michael

    Hey brendy thanks for the Link and reply. I guess it's not in my head after all, but due to the engineers themselves when it comes to tracking vox channels. Anyway, I guess I need to update my center speaker! LOL
