You're thinking of dynamic range compression, which is somewhat different than what is in the audio menu of The Last of Us. When you set it to Maximum, quiet things will be quite and loud things will be loud. If you set it to Narrow or Midnight, there will be hardly any difference in volume level between the two.
Like bd2003 mentioned earlier, I set mine on LPCM 7.1, center to Large (let the AVR work it's crossover magic) and then Dynamic Range to Maximum then set the volume to what I normally listen to Blurays at. I was never disappointed in the audio, and I never experienced any distortion at all.
