is it me or PHANTOM MENACE a really low movie
I have to raise my center channel's volume just to hear the dialog
You would probably get more responses in the "software" section.
Yes, I play it 10 dB or more above my normal volume, and it is not too loud, or any louder than my other disks for that matter. I have about a dozen disks out of about 100 that seem to be either hotter or softer than the rest.
There was a rather large discussion concerning TPM audio. See the following link.
lots of Columbia/Tristar discs are like this (the dialnorm is set to ~ -12dB). For instance, on 'The Muppet Movie'... I have to turn my receiver up 12 notches above my reference level to achive the same volume as other discs.
I also noticed this w/ "A Beautiful Mind." Had to go about +5 db...
thanks alot guys I forgot that I had posted in the movies forum
YOu shouldn't raise just your Center Channel level in a film- especially once you've gotten calibrated levels.
Often issues like this one are simply issues of overall encoding levels (and while there are standards for overall encoding levels- some discs vary slightly).
In the case of overall encoding differences, the problem can be solved simply by increasing the overall volume a few clicks to compensate.
It's not as low as The Others. I had the volume so high, that when a loud part came on, I about blew out my ears!
