I picked up this title at the local Costco for $9.99. I loved this movie when I saw it as kid. I was so pleased to see it released on DVD. I watched it last night and was surprised at how high I had to crank my amp to be able to hear the sound track. I'm wondering if this normal for this title or is there something wrong with the DVD? As a matter of reference I usually listen to most of my movies with the amp volume set between -45 and -35..depending on the type of movie it is...for the Day The Earth Stood Still, I had to have the volume set to -20..and even at that setting it wasn't exceptionally loud. Just curious if others experienced the same thing.. BTW..the video quality on this title is outstanding considering it's age.
