Yup watched ninja II LAST night. Sick martial arts. I expected to see Stephen segal (my second cousin btw) based on the story.

But picture quality was some of the Best I have ever seen. And while bass filtered at 20Hz was awesome and done really well!!

Also watched Serenity. Cool movie. Bass was great as well! Great 6$ pickup to add to the collection

Tonight is golden compass.

Great shut your brain off popcorn flicks cranked up to ref in the HT and I am going to add number 1 to my collection as well. Also decided to grab Ninja Assassin off Amazon since it was pretty cheap. Both of these played well to the strengths of my low end. And yeah, PQ on part 2 is top notch as well as Phantom reported. Great disc!

I just had to go out and get a copy of Ninja 1 - dead on - another incredible audio disc - outstanding - your right it may have more energy sub 20Hz - I am going top start checking out more of these direct to video release - maybe they are mixing to the home crowd

Have you ever considered creating posts like the one from Tom Johnson that David Bott posted here?

It was a nice peak behind the curtain, and offered us some guidance on what kind of things to listen for in a movie that we may either miss or take for granted.

You may get something out of it also, from the feedback of forum members, and how we noticed or reacted to certain scenes.

+1.

Yeah, a real disappointment. I have both. I did an a/b comparison between the two. The bass is noticeably better on the DVD, but everything else is noticeably better on the blu-ray, especially the surround info.

Very scary and great audio. I thought the bass was excellent. Really shook the house.

Excellent! Glad you liked it.

Curious what you find with more of the direct to video variety. It's interesting that these direct to vid and low key titles like the Ninja movies, DiT (watched this again last night and what a fantastic and pounding low end!), FA, etc......outgun a lot of the major releases. Wonder why that is.....

I had my Onkyo on -15 too, but during explosions I turned it up to -10. WOW!! I don't know if I would have dared turning it up much louder....my walls and everything on them were shaking BIG TIME. Having said that, if my wife had been gone I may have ventured into "reference" territory. biggrin.gif

Set it to off and then have another listen.

The bad news is that the unit defaults to Auto on power-up, so any disc that has the flag set will engage Night Mode. The good news is that there are very few discs where the makers were stupid enough to set the flag. I even suspect it was a mistake.

Anyway, check to see if it's the case with you. IME Iron Man has an excellent soundtrack.
I hate that about my NR-809 with the night mode. I actually thought it was a glitch in my reciever. I first figured it out on accident that it was doing this when I first got it and I was going back and forth thru the menus. Why the heck would they program that in? I agree could be a mistake overlooked.

Do any of you experiment with Dynamic EQ much? Before I never considered it but lately I've been trying it out and it's been breathing new life into every movie. I usually listen between -10 to -15 and it's been fantastic! Bass has never hit harder and surrounds are much fuller. Adds weight to the bass during tons of scenes. At first the surrounds where too over powering but after adjusting the trim down 3dbs they blend excellent with LCRs. It's been two weeks now with Dynamic EQ on and I gotta say I love it.

No idea why they did it that way but is sure is annoying that you can't just turn the damn thing off and have done with it.

^^ DynEQ should be set to ON if one does not listen at reference MV.

Dynamic EQ is a terrific tool for anyone who listens to movies at well below Reference Level, as you do. A lot of people have found it can overboost the surrounds, but the solution to that is to do what you have done. For the bass, Dynamic EQ works very well indeed.

Awesome i usually leave dial at -12 than adjust up or down a couple Db depending on how movie is mixed.

Awesome glad to hear cause I've been just loving it!!

I find the night mode annoying as well on my Onkyo 885 preamp. Certainly not a huge issue as I am firmly in the habbit of just flipping it off for TrueHD, but it's annoying you can't just leave this off from one power up to another.

Nice Man. So Onkyo and Denon recievers and processors have Dynamic EQ. Was curious what other models use it?

I've heard some contradicting testimony about the Dolby TrueHD soundtrack on Iron Man. I watched it last night and on my system it was demo worthy in all areas. The scene where Iron Man is chased by Jets was one of the highlights. Pummeling bass and rockets flying all around the room. Surrounds are so dynamic in that scene.
