    I imagine you all spend time balancing your system, setting subwoofers and trying to get everything just right. Then you play a DVD is great. Put on a movie on TV and if it is TNT the bass is overdone. If it is CBS or NBC it is weak. Next DVD is played and it is off as well. CD's are all over the place.

    Why is the media we use so inconsistent. How do you all deal with this??

    Well, mature pre-recorded formats tend to be the best (i.e. DVD). Someday BD and/or HD-DVD will get there too. Honestly there isn't much you can do about other sources that doesn't do more harm than good. You could turn on some kind of compression and make it all sound more consistent but you are lowering your system's performance to the lowest common denominator then.
