Is anybody aware of a receiver that lets you adjust the relative levels of the channels when it downmixes from 5.1 to 2.0? I believe that their are well-established defaults for how the mix is supposed to be done, either in the Dolby Digital specification, or in metadata in the data stream (I don't know which, or know any details). My question is whether there is any gear that lets you override the default -- for example to mix the center center N Db higher than normal.

This question is somewhat related to this thread:

but asks about control over the relative levels of the channels rather than control over DNC.
