I could do with a bit of help. Get out your Jurassic Park DVD, region 1 or 2, DTS or not it doesnt matter. Chapter 2 begins with the Badlands dinosaur dig, during the dialogue, can you make out every word, clear as a bell ? or is it slightly indistinct and maybe showing signs of sibilance? be critical, Im not asking if you can make out the words, just the quality. Right, those with The Butterfly Effect on Region 2. THX gave it an 8 for sound quality with all the dialogue being rich and easy to hear. Everyone concur? I have tried everything, but no way do I think either of these films has clear dialogue. So either theres something wrong in my system or Im expecting too much. I tried swapping DVD players, just to see if there was any difference, but it was identical. The system consists : Denon 2900 with proper 75 ohm digital co ax, Denon AVC10SE amp. Matched front speakers at the front, high quality bookshelf size Neat Petites with the correct centre speaker. Everything on stands and at the correct heights, connected with QED SA cable. Sub is an SVS PC Ultra with a BFD all calibrated and balanced. Rears are Energy. Video is by prog outputs to a Sanyo PLV30 PJ. Pure CD sounds fine and is better still via the analogue outputs of the player into the direct connections of the amp (a la SACD ). I tried a Phillips 962SA in place of the Denon, but there was no obvious difference.
