    Is it just m setup or is the opening minute of TDK sound level really low?
    I'm talking about the beginning - from 15sec to 53sec.

    It's supposed to sound like that. The sonic boom begins only during the opening IMAX prologue.;)

    I thought that was strange as well. Did anyone notice a buzzing sound that came and went in the background? I think the Imax scenes had most of it. I am just listening to it in DD 5.1 and not full TrueHD.

    edit.
    Just watched the extras for the first time. Seems the noise I was referring to is known as "sound of the joker".
