In that case, try using RLO as Selden suggested. It may help. The FAQ has all the info.

WRT to REW, if you do, please download Jerry's Guide linked in my sig. It will save you hours of frustration.

I have read extensively on Auro and how it works. As a subscriber to Widescreen Review I could hardly not do so, as it seems to have become the official house journal for Auro ;)

It is ludicrous...

It depends. As you probably know, at lower frequencies, the room is basically what you are hearing. The room and the subwoofer interact together. This causes peaks and troughs in the frequency...

If you are exciting room modes that have a tendency to cause boominess, then raising the level of the sub will exaggerate that boominess.

I have not heard Auro at all, which is why I have never commented on how it sounds, only on the tech.

I find this is true for all 5 of the Atmos discs I have, and of course the 4 Atmos trailers. The main thing I notice is the much greater 'precision' with which sounds are placed in the soundstage. I...

You really think the industry would prefer to stay with channel-based mixing once something much better had been invented (object-based mixing)?

The SQ in John Wick is very good indeed. There isn't a huge amount of opportunity for overhead demo sounds, but there are some. But overall, the sound is fabulous. And the movie isn't bad either.
