Just to add... my one experience with dynamic volume was when I had turned it on to play around and forgot. I played some "Korn" later that day and every time there was a bass drop the volume cut out and I could barely hear it. I thought something was seriously wrong with my subs until I remembered I had turned dynamic volume on. Once I turned it off I had my bass back.\n\nFred, the only thing I can tell you is I don't think you have a very good grasp on what most folks consider to be "good sound", or at least what the terms mean. Your comment about dynamics is telling. You're telling us that you have better dynamics with DV turned on and unless your unit somehow reversed "on" and "off", there's no way that's possible. That program does the complete polar opposite of enhance dynamics! It's specifically there ONLY to kill dynamics! Maybe that's just how you like it, and there's nothing wrong with that. Most of us like an even frequency response with as much of the original content intact as possible, including dynamics.\n\nAll that said, maybe you just prefer less dynamics and tamed bass and there's nothing wrong with that. If you like it better then run with it, ignore us and enjoy your system! It's not like "you're doing it wrong". Ultimately your happiness is what counts most for you. We're just a bunch of shitheads on a forum spewing forth our own personal opinions at the end of the day!
