My opinion, and how I have my system setup is:
Dynamic Volume OFF
Dynamic EQ OFF
THX OFF (After the excitement of THX wore off, I use Straight Decode on all muti-channel signals, Dolby PL II Movie for 2-channel TV/movies and either Stereo or All Channel Stereo for 2-channel music depending on my mood. )
Dolby Volume OFF ( I used it for a little while and while it sounds great at volume levels -12db and quieter, it does something really harsh to the sound when you get anywhere near 0db. )
I found that Dynamic EQ makes dialog harder to hear because it raises the surrounds, and raises the sub level as well, and it just seems to muddy it up. It makes the sound seem artificial to me......................... Others love it, I don't.
