I'd like to run this thread here also if I may...
I have a problem that I can't solve... I have for a long time now had trouble getting "consistent" voice levels from anything (DVD or VHS or Sat) if it's either 5.1 or DTS. My receiver is a JVC DTS/5.1 (aprrox $300), with Polk SDA's, 400i Center, and 25i Rear. If I listen to a stereo broadcast or CD, and set my receiver to Pro-Logic or Theatre, my center channel sounds fine and actually has to be backed off, cause it's so "present", so I know the speaker works great, and the receiver is capable of putting out a signal to the center using Dolby Pro Logic. Yet once I go to a 5.1 or DTS source (usually a DVD), I lose the voices in almost 99% of whatever movie I watch. The special effects come screaming through the center, yet low voice/conversation track??
I've gone though every setting adjustment possible with no positive results.
Last night watched Boston Public using ProLogic - great/perfect voice presence at #37 on volume - but on a DVD with 5.1 or DTS, I'd be at 50 to hear people talk, but have to turn it down every time a special effect hit due to too much volume...
Anybody ever heard of this, and can you help? Do I need a better receiver?
I can't believe the whole world is putting up with this at home, so it's got to be something like me room(yet as said, stereo or Dolby Surround come through fine), or a bad/cheap 5.1/DTS prosessor in the JVC receiver??
Thanks in advance
