Question about JVC MX-DVA9 Shelf System

1 Answer

Dialogue vs. background music and sound

When watching DVD movies using the surround sound, the dialogue isn't loud enough to hear sometimes and the background sounds and music drown it out. It isn't that you can't hear the voices at all, but it's so low it's really hard to make out what the characters are saying. It's like it's not proportionate to the music and background noises. Changing the surround sound settings makes no difference. I noticed there is a button on the remote that doesn't work. It's labled "CHOICE" and I have no idea what it does. Even tried to get a new remote control, but the button still does nothing. Not sure if it has anything to do with it or not.

Background sound too loud


Thank you, everyone! I thought maybe I was losing my mind. I can hardly watch a lot of the TV shows anymore due to the inappropriate use of music -- either it's too loud or there's just too darned much of it. Come on, TV producers! You are supposed to get better with time, not worse! Thank goodness I'm not alone.

Emerson dvd player - background sound lauder than dialogue


Greetings surfjax,

If you will allow me to make an assumption, you do not have a 5.1 surround system connected to your DVD player. This is a common experience with users of a standard TV or stereo receiver if a movie is being presented in 5.1.

In a surround sound system the center channel speaker provides almost all the vocal tracks while the side channels will provide music and some background noises. You'll still be able to hear the voices in your side speakers, but it will be muted and over powered by music or sound effects.

Some DVD players allow you to "Downmix" the surround signal to stereo. You might want to look around your sound setup on the DVD player or check your owners manual.

Hope this helps.
Jon
