Last night a friend and I decided to watch the expendables "BR" at 10 at night.
So I enabled midnight mode and sat down to the movie. Sure enough IMO it did nothing to the sound between the action scenes and the conversations. I had to turn it way up to hear the talking and than way down during the action.
Just a thought but could this be because I am running a simulated center? My receiver is setup with no center. I also am not running a sub as of yet. Could it be that I am not getting much volume in conversation scenes? I was running the DTS HD track.
