As I ask this question, I am sure the answer will be along the lines of "personal preference", but I think I need some more info before I can figure that out. :) I keep going back and forth between having the Dynamic Volume on Light or Off - always have Dynamic EQ on. In some ways, it seems the DV helps to keep the boomier booms from distorting or sounding too harsh, but I've also noticed a bit of a "flatness" in terms of musical content. For example, was reviewing the Blu-ray of Immortal Beloved over the weekend and with just the D-EQ on it sounded like the symphony was in the living room, but even with DV on light mode it sounded flatter and almost a little pinched. This leaves me a bit stuck...do I leave it on DV to control the highest highs and lowest lows? Or turn it off for the fullest dynamic range? Or am I missing something altogether?
Also, a side-question...are there any ramifications in terms of settings/levels/calculations getting lost or confused when toggling the DV on or off? Since I started trying to do more quick side-by-side (so to speak) testing the whole seems to be sounding a bit worse to me, but that could easily be my ears messing with me at this point! :)
Thanks in advance for your help!
