Okay, color me dumb but I have a very basic question. I have had my receiver (Pioneer Elite) and bluray player (Sony) for about a year now. Recently, my wife has started to really get aggitated by the sudden and loud booms during action movies. This seems especially bad when watching movies on bluray. Problem is, if I turn it down, I can't hear the dialogue between action scenes.
So I did some research and found that DRC is likely what will help my case. I looked at the manual and saw that the options are Auto, Max, Mid, and Off. Not really sure how to interpret these settings. And one more thing; how is DRC different from Midnight mode? Is one option better between these two?
