I must get a SPL Meter now.No More Excuses in Putting it off.The Chart/List you have started of different movies and their levels is fascinating.I will do my part in adding any titles and infotmation about the Levels these Movies Default to when Playing.
As I have noticed some movies have to be played Louder(and some even at Lower Levels to match the output of another Movie).

Thanks for the PM and Including me in this,Big Daddy. And I watched your ex-projector again earlier today on Ice Age 3. Simply Breath Taking.I Love that Sony Projector with a passion.I cant wait to get the screen early next week.

But count me in BD.I will do all I can to Contribute to the Movie Volume Reference Level.
I Hope you are Enjoying a Wonderful Evening,my Friend .
Thank you for the compliment. I am glad you are enjoying the projector. It is one of the sexiest projectors. I wish it could output 1080p.

Check the table in post#2 of this thread. When you watch a Blu-ray movie, check the Dialnorm offset and report it to me so that I can complete the table. The BD player has output audio in bitstream for the receiver to be able to report this number.

You have to set your BD player's audio to bitstream. Otherwise, your receiver will not show the offsets. In my Denon receiver, the offsets are shown in the menu under Information, Input Signal.

I was under the impression that dialnorm is not implemented on legacy DTS. Yet I see two discs on Big Daddy's list (Aeon Flux and Punisher) that list dialnorm offsets for DTS encodes. Can anyone clarify this?

That puzzled me a bit too. I double checked the Punisher. This is the information that my Denon receiver reports:

Surround Mode: DTS ES 6.1
Fs: 48kHz
Format: 3/3/.1
Offset: -4dB
Flag: Discrete


Surround Mode: Dolby Digital EX 5.16.1
Fs: 48kHz
Format: 3/3/.1
Offset: -4dB
Flag: Matrix

It is possible that DTS has found religion (dialnorm religion) on BD's or the studios are free to use any offset they want with DD and DTS on blu-ray movies.

Another surprising thing is that Paramount uses an offset of -6dB on the French and Spanish Dolby Digital for the G.I. Joe BD. Of course, Sony does not use dialog normalization on most of their BD movies. However, they used an offset of -2dB on David Gilmour's Dolby TrueHD track.

Sorry about all the work, BD. And you do work fast.

I'm just enjoying The Chronicles of Riddick right now, so no more tonight.

And yes, I pop one in see what it is and then move on to the next. I have over 200 BD's so I may be adding things for the next month or so.
