Agreed! Rode out my last visit (some time ago) with toilet paper jammed in my ears, after realizing I left my earplugs at home. The noise-cancelling headphones are intriguing to me. How does that work? Just diminish the sound, or alter it in other ways as well? Is the volume then satisfactory after putting them on, or can you adjust levels?

It must really depend on where you live or the chain of theaters you visit. I haven't noticed that the few movies I've been to recently have been super loud or louder than years past.

Depends on the movie as well....I remember being in the bathroom at the urinal and the sounds was coming thru the toilet and the water and walls were being pounded. I went out to the room next to the bathroom, and saw that it was Dunkirk playing....and thought, that should be good at the house.

Noted that comment as well! -20 is about as loud as I go, any more and my head starts to Crack like Humpty Dumpty. Makes me wonder if we all have the same loudness at Reference?

The last movie I went to was just before Christmas (Christmas Eve actually) to see the last Star Wars Movie. It was a DTS/IMAX Theatre. Was SO loud wife and I plugged our ears with napkins and it was still too loud. Is it me or have Theatre Movies gotten much louder over the last few years?[/QUOTE]

Yes, everyone should have the same loudness for reference. The volumes we listen at are all different because our rooms are different. In my case, I'm watching in a dedicated HT that is acoustically treated. -20 in my room would sound like a whisper.

Depends on the size of that room too, my room is tiny so my perceived volume is higher

Tracking @Tom Riddle , as I can go to -15 for physical discs, and at time's find myself -10 with like Vudu. I did hit -5 once for the lightning scene and the end of the Sith in ROS, just to see what the BOOS and PSA subs would do. The ears were hurting after that. I sit like 10 ft. from the front speakers, and -15 is plenty loud. No with my older Polk speakers I had...that was a different story.

Nice. I'm probably still going to buy the 4k for the Atmos but for $2.50 after rewards points on Amazon I couldn't turn down the Blu Ray since I hadn't watched it since the 2 disc special edition DVD.

Toilet roll is an interesting idea
Noise cancelling doesn't really alter the sound at that volume level it really just reduced the impact. I can't go to the cinemas without them these days.

So I go to the site, all German. Work my way through ordering it. Put my password in. So the site recognizes who I am, and my address, but provides this:

Bitte beachten Sie Es gab ein Problem mit einigen Artikeln Ihrer Bestellung (weitere Informationen siehe unten): Hardcore (Limited Steelbook) [Blu-ray]

AND:
Dieser Artikel kann nicht an die ausgewählte Adresse versandt werden. Erfahren Sie mehr. Sie können entweder die Lieferadresse ändern oder den Artikel aus Ihrer Bestellung lösche


These appear to be warnings that something is amiss, but as I don't read German, I am stumped at this point. Clicking on what I think is the order box, just refreshes the same page. How does one proceed here?
Thanks for anyone's help!

We popped in Sonic yesterday afternoon and @MrGrey and @SuperFist were spot on, the Bass sweeps at 15:33 were awesome and the effect at 26:44 will have you checking for cracks in your roof. When the movie was over and the wife and kids left, I went back and watched both again...several times, lol.

Thanks Tom Riddle! Yes, that would seem the way to go, just couldn't find the "translate" button, and/or don't know how to do it in another way....

But as long as I have you, this as well:

Forgive my ignorance, but I've never messed with trying to do "reference" -- I just adjust volume to preference, which mostly middles around 57 on my Marantz pre-pro, and that is about as loud as I want it generally, but the dial goes up to 100. I've got something like 60 or so drivers in the mix, 20 K watts, so the sound is quite large at 57.

What is "reference" based on? -- SPLs, or something else? If it were SPLs, then it seems like the same SPLs would be the same loudness in all rooms, or is that not correct?

Again, sorry for the ignorance, but reference seems elusive if some people are reporting that -20 is like a whisper, and others are reporting this as loud enough. How does the volume setting come into play? I don't know how my 57 relates to reference, but I'd like to know....

Rookie questions I know, but thought I'd ask anyway...

When you run a calibration, the AVR or Pre/Pro is calculating reference volume, so everyone should be at the exact same level unless they adjust the settings post calibrations. The use of Dynamic EQ and Volume would also change the loudness, and the actual reference level (you can set Dynamic EQ in conjunction with Reference to alleviate this as the volume is turned up.

Here is a brief description: Average reference level is about 85db with ideally 20db headroom for peaks on the main channels and 30db headroom on the LFE channel. 75db is the typical calibration level that most avr's put out, but is not considered reference listening level.

As for the room, no each room will vary. If your room is not acoustically treated, then reflections in the room will increase your perceived volume and listening at or near reference levels would be unbearable. With so many different room types and many users having their setups in their living rooms, most are unable to acoustically treat to fix these reflection points. If I were to remove all of the acoustic treatments in my room, then reference levels would be impossible. Before they were applied, I had a really good echo when speaking, which would be amplified when watching a movie, hence the perceived loudness. Also, as @richardsim7 stated, the size and shape of your room will play a big part in this as well. A small room not acoustically treated will have more perceived loudness than a large or open room.

From the writers/directors of Good Time (2017) starring Robert Pattinson, another stressful and weird/unique movie with its own rhythm. I haven't watched Uncut Gems and I don't like Sandler, but those filmmakers are intriguing and the movie will be at the very least interesting. I've seen Pattinson in a couple of movies outside the Twilight saga, and the guy can act. Looking forward to his rendition of Batman.

Thanks for the rec, had no idea this movie even existed.

Just a heads up. Hunter Killer 4k (2018) is currently at 10 bucks on Amazon. One of the best bass movies of 2019, and a pretty good action movie. I watched it on regular TV, and looking forward to watching and listening to that audio track.

Edit: Added graph

Check out the EMP at 1:00 in this trailer. Seems to have pretty great bass (plus it actually sounds awesome too!).

We watched Top Gun in UHD last night and the new Atmos track is solid with some amazing effects throughout and it really opens up the soundstage. Unfortunately, the bass track has been changed from the old DTS-HD MA 6.1 and it definitely isn’t as potent. With that said, it is still highly watchable and quite fun - I mean, it’s Top Gun....in Atmos! The PQ is also quite amazing.

It appears that this one would be a monster with BEQ applied. I really need to step up my game!

BEQ adds so much for so little cost and it takes anemic movies and turns them into something special. I watched Star Trek Beyond last night with BEQ and it was a totally different movie.

I struggle with the idea of going down the BEQ route. I tend to focus on what is there and being faithful to that. It’s very enticing however.

Hi folks,

Here's my thoughts on the Atmos vs DTS-HD version of War of the Worlds. I've included some RTA graphs of some of the scenes so you can see what it's doing in my room.



TLDR - The Atmos track is definitely filtered under 30hz and does indeed affect rumble down under. Surprisingly, I feel the upper bass is a bit more nuanced and defined in the Atmos mix. The overhead effects stand out more in the Atmos mix. Still, that under 30hz stuff is the fun stuff! BEQ helps but still doesn't reach the levels of the DTS-HD track.

My HT: 7.3.4
Spoiler!

@Tom Riddle , I liked that Atmos in this one, but still a bit grainy...
