    I play my netflix through my Panasonic UHD player UB900,but whenever i play an movie that has the DD+5.1 track,the sound loses it dynamic range,as those the it kick in late night setting that you get on receivers.
    Are Netflix using compression on their soundtrack for DD+5.1 movies ?.

    :(

    What are you comparing the track to? DD5,1 can sound very flat compared to the HD variants, so you would need to compare similar formats to give a reliable stand point.
