    Okay, I don't want to turn it off. I don't have a problem with it at all. It is just that someone has said NONE of the DD procesors/recievers allowed you to manipulate dialogue normalization. I could have SWORN that I used to have one that did. I remember you could turn it off, but it would come back on when you turned the receiver off and then back on.I have, to the best of memory, only had 3 DD procesors/receivers. I had a Technics DD/DTS standalone processor, the Denon AVR3200 and Denon AVR3300. Maybe it was one of them?
    thanks

    Okay, I did some digging and found an old post where I commented that my old Denon 3200 allowed dialogue normalization to be turned off. Denon 3600 and 5800 owners commented that their receivers did the same. Someone with a Sony ES DD processor said his was adjustable too. Can anyone with these models confirm this old info?
    thanks!

    My denon 3200 allows me to toggle dialog normalization
    on/off. In fact, I have a macro on my radio shack remote
    the will do it for me.

    It sounds like all Denons let you defeat DN. My AVP-8000 does too.

    My Denon AVD2000 DD decoder also allows one to turn off the DN; however, DN gets reset to ON everytime the component is turned off.

    My Denon AVR-3300 does not allow it to be turned off.
    Luckily, I'm able to adjust the volume, so it's not important. [​IMG]

    My Denon 5700 does not allow dialogue normalisation to be turned off. But I don't care because I know how it works, so I know it doesn't affect sound quality.

    What is dialog normalization? It's not the same thing as Cinema Re-EQ as far as I understand...
    Thx,
