    Has anyone else noticed that the sound level has been recorded very low on this disk or is it just my copy ?

    To get a reasonably strong volume I normally set my Yamaha to about 35db below full output for most disks. Watching Alien last night, I had to turn the volume up quite considerably to -25db. I've not noticed any other disk quite this bad before.

    Hi GearHead,

    Have you got the R2 or R1 editions?

    On my R2 edition, that came in the 4xDVD "Alien Series Boxed Set", the sound is fine.

    You may have a duff copy, in which case you ought to try getting it exchanged, if you can.

    Sorry I can't be of more help.

    I have the same problem with my Aliens R2.
    Watched it on Friday and was very disappointed with the sound.

    I thought my sub had packed up as the LFE output on my amp was going mad but I was hearing hardly anything.

    I bought Aliens 4 (R2) at the same and it sounds great.

    Mike.

    Thanks for the replies. Mines R2 but not from the boxset (if that makes a difference ?). I guess I'll have to borrrow a copy from someone and see how they compare.
