It's Dynamic EQ. It boosts the surrounds (in addition to adjusting freq response) to maintain surround immersion during movies. But not appropriate for all ch stereo listening.

Instead of adjusting surround levels which (as you found) also mucks up movie performance, either turn DEQ off for all ch stereo listening or adjust the Ref Level Offset parameter to 10-15db which will tone down how much DEQ is boosting. You could also try some of the other music surround upmix modes like Pro Logic II Music.

I concur -- try a couple of choices. I have found that if synthesizing for 5 speakers from a 2-channel source is necessary, I prefer PL II cinema for movies, but NEO:X music for music. The PL II choice for music still leaves the surround channels too loud, just like Azaqui's.

Is there a way to control or at least push music to an E300 from my PC? Ideally I'd like to select music from iTunes or Spotify and it would play on the E300. Is that possible, or should I just use the remote to browse files much slower?
