John Wick. If that doesn't impress you, something is wrong

The sound in Transformers: Age of Extinction was insane. Enjoyed it more at home than in the theater.

Transformers AOE had a LFE boost of some sorts. It was extremely loud. I actually needed to lower my trim when watching it. I don't know if it played that deep, but it was loud.

From a bass standpoint it is done pretty well...not TIH or WOTW well, but quite well compared to the other duds that we have seen lately.

Fidelity! "John Wick" it just screams it, you said it right and it needs no excuse "its done pretty well" very well might I add

I'm going to say it again, John Wick is recorded low overall so you have to crank it up a bit. I was at around 7 db's louder than I normally am for movie watching.

That along with turning up the sub trim a couple db's too for good measure and the gun scenes will make you come back here and post that you have changed your mind.

VERY clean bass too, no overhang/bloat. Just quick/violent slam over and over again during the shootouts. It was awesome.

Always way behind, but I finally blasted Transformers Dark of the Moon tonight. It was a heavy duty Bass-Fest, as advertised. I ran it hot, which was fun, but unnecessary.

Well, fun for everyone but the dog. She ran out of the room for good at the three minute mark. Doesn't like it when the floor heaves.


Every once in a while, quite inexplicably, things actually go according to plan.

I've noticed that most if not all BR using Dolby TrueHD have to be turned up 5dbs or more in comparison to DTS Master HD tracks.

I watched JW last week and this past Friday watched Fury and I had all the volume I needed at -18 with Fury. JW I was at at least -14 if I remember correctly. I might have turned it up to -12 after about 30 minutes or so.

I also found the gunfire sound effects to be better in Fury.

Make sure your AVR isn't turning on Dynamic Compression with those TrueHD discs.

A lot of AVRs default to on with Dolby TrueHD and DD discs, I know mine did.

Woah, very cool. Fury is next up for me probably this weekend. If the gunfire is better than John Wick it's going to be crazy!!

Just watched Fury yesterday and it was a lot of fun. Great sound effects as well as visual effects. Bass was also great during the battle scenes (although I wish there had been a little more bass through the movie). Over all, a fantastic audio and visual movie driven by a great story.

The movie did a great job of creating some serious intense moments. Those tank crews get my respect, standing in there while everybody and their brother were trying to take them out. Once again making me proud to be part of a country that has such wonderful men and women in it's armed forces.

I put on Ragnarok this morning. I wasn't even 5 minutes into it when I had to find the HTPC mouse and move it because the bass was making the cursor appear on the screen...

Hunger Games: The Mocking Jay Part 1.

There are a few decent scenes...the bombing towards the end is the best. Then again I could not watch it very loud so I may need to revisit it.

A couple of recommendations while the bass drought passes...

"Whiplash" tons of drums and horns, the midbass is fantastic the story is pretty darn good too.

"Dragonheart 3" this dragon is much better than Smaug lol cheesy story but the surround effects are really cool on this one
