I would love to add a point about Indiana Jones, this seems to be the only track with a dialnorm value of -25, this means it is played 2-6db quiter than other tracks. I for the longest time did not realize this and found the track to be lacking. Reading reviews of the audio on the movie it seems the revewers experienced the samething. Once I played the movie at +2db on my receiver the track really rocked, a 5 star track without a doubt. I highly recomend that anyone with this movie (forget if you like the movie or not) go back and revisit it at the correct volume level.

Thank you for the compliments. Dialnorm is probably the most misunderstood topic in audio.
