As much as it was a little annoying, Scott is right. DRC can be turned on if needed or people feel it's necessary. However, I don't listen to my movies at reference level at all (I'm usually at -12). But even at that level some of the LFE in some parts is scary. I can't imagine what reference would be like. I don't think my subs could handle it.

LOL! Out of all the people to call out on a comment about their home theater...hahahah.

Seriously, Art .. why don't you get some speakers with some real dynamic range and have a pro calibrate your room?

Sorry I just couldn't resist... I was trying to read through this thread and all I could think about was this exchange!

what's up with the audio on this br???

i was constantly turning the volume up for dialog and down for action scenes the whole movie. it became rather annoying and detracted from
what little enjoyment i could find in this film.
others at home were asleep
and the audio range on this was way over the top.

What's funny is that this has been happening since laser disc days! I remember the story of some guy, while his wife and kids are sleeping, turns down the sound for the action scenes and forgets he has done that and then promptly wakes up the family and all the neighbors when the action scenes comes back on.

I wonder why they still do it today?

...finally retired and spending time in my HT!!!

Wait, what? Movies having a wide dynamic range? Seriously?

It's funny that people react to films like this in such a positive/humorous way.....yeah. We don't all have a sound proof room. Yeah. We don't all have a dedicated theater in the basement of our homes. But truth is when a films soundtrack is over the top in terms of dynamics, then it just is what it is. Come on now, this film reminds me of Super 8! Dialogs are excellent, effects and music are awesome, but the dang dynamics in terms of high action sequences really impair the audio presentation. (Some scenes, when the guy shoots himself in the foot, yes startling, but are way over the top!) my system has been professionally calibrated and is more than capable of handling dynamic range! This film is awesome but the soundtrack does "scream" sometimes. That is all...... Lol

Finally snagged a rental copy to see it. I was really impressed!...neat twists! It has a Shymalan kind of twist to it.

Yes, the gunshots sound volume were jarring, but in a good and authentic way. It's loud like the crack of lightning kind of a way that jars you. ...oh and yes, lots of guns with a good ole fashioned R kind of violence.

Margot Robbie is THE most exquisite human creature on the face of the planet, in this moment in time.
