First of all...I believe the receiver is great. I have it powering some Athena speakers. Anyway...my problem is that on movies sometimes the normal dialogue is muddy(?) in that all the action around the characters is fairly loud but it is hard to hear what the characters are saying. I get that alot...I have to turn up the volume to hear dialogue but turn it down on action scenes because it gets fairly loud. Any suggestions? I have used the MCACC from where I sit. I can what I am trying to say is that the range between soft noise and loud noise is to much? I want the louder sounds and softer sounds to be closer together. Hmmm...hope you all know what I mean.
