From what I read, all the professionals only mentioned that they use the exact same settings for both editions. None mentioned they tried level match one edition to another.
Dial Norm is not an issue but an indication of what vol you should set to match your regular listening level.
I've a Netflix copy at home and just bought the BSE from WM. I'll try them out to see (1) what dial norm of each disc really are (2) if I can level match and listen to the differences.
