I am a complete noob that likes to think I know what I'm doing when it comes to AV. Sorry if I am giving more or not enough info than needed. I am slowly putting together a surround sound system piece by piece to get higher quality pieces instead of the surround sound in a box set up.
This is what I currently have:
2 Definitive Technology ProMonitor 800 Bookshelf Speaker (Currently my Front L&R. will eventually be my rear speakers)
Definitive Technology ProCenter 1000 Compact Center Speaker
I have not purchased a Sub Woofer yet because I live in a condo and have a 1 year old.
I play my Blu Ray movies through my PS3 Slim and have it connected via HDMI.
I originally got the receiver and speakers because everywhere I read that the reason I could not hear dialog well was because TVs do not handle digital sound from an HDMI cable well. Now I have a left and right and center and while everything sounds better I cannot get it so I can hear the dialog well. I have found that it tends to be better when I stream but it was really off when I put in Dark Knight Rises the other day. Bane (I know his voice was really effected in post production) was very loud and boomy and at times I could not even hear Bruce Wayne all while the action and sound effects are too loud. Keep in mind I am trying to watch at night without waking up my son or disturbing our neighbors.
I have tried boosting the center channel and still have the problem.
I would be so thankful for any help or a direction.
