I just re-watched Phantom of the Opera on HD-DVD. This was my first time watching an HD-DVD with my new hdmi Onkyo receiver. The Dolby True HD sounded absolutely incredible, but I was wondering if the audio was mastered at a low level on this disc. I had to turn up the volume considerably higher than other hd-dvd's I tested afterward. Again, the quality was excellent. Just wondering if anyone else noticed this.

Since it is TrueHD make sure DRC is off.

Yes the audio was mastered at a low level on Phantom. Lower than any other I know of.
