Default Sony BDP-S350 and Low Iron Man DVD Sound

Just purchased Sony 350 and it is hooked up straight to my 40 LCD Bravia XBR via monster HDMI and the sound on iron man is very low. Have volume turned up all the way to watch movie. Regular DVD's play nice and loud. Went thru audio set up and tweaked some settings. Still nothing. Any help is appreciated.

It's probably that highly overpriced Monster cable you are using , just kidding. But in the future check out www.monoprice for all of your cable needs at much, much better prices for high quality cables.

Where did you tweak the settings, the player or TV. How do you have the player set, for bitstream or PCM? Those things can make a difference as well.

LOL ! Thanks for the link. I set AUDIO DRC to TV mode on player so far. Everything else is out the box settings. Just set it to PCM and still low sound.

I thought the Iron Man BD audio was a little low on the PS3 too. Had to turn up the volume a little higher than normal.

It was a little low on my BD30 also. Other than True HD, BD movies are normal.

Question

Hey, I did the exact same thing as you. Went and bought a sony Blu-ray player on Friday night along with Blu-Ray Iron Man and Regular version of Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Hooked it up when I got home to watch Iron Man with my girlfriend and had to turn my sound on my 52" Aquos lcd all the way up to even try to hear what they were saying. I also tried to tweak some settings, no success. Whats the deal with this? I put in Forgetting Sarah Marshall next and the sound was pretty much just fine.

what i did was go to set up,audio,bd audio setting and punched in direct,and it was normal loud.if your hooked up tv directly to the 350,it seems to work.before i did this i could turn up the volume on the tv all the way and the sound was way to low.

It's because of the mix used for the 2 channel stereo for the TV. If you were to hook it up to a surround sound system the volume would be better and the dialog clearer.

Sony BDP-S350 probs:

My system is hooked up to a surround system and I have the same problem with dialogue being low on Blu-Ray discs, DVD's play fine.

On a separate note I also get a white line about 1-2 pixel width appearing intermittingly on the right hand side of my 37 inch Samsung A656. Line will still appear even while in pause. Happens with blu-ray and DVD discs.

the iron man bluray had a night setting on.. so if you have auto on your sound system receiver.. best to turn it off if its on auto. its a known problem.

You are right that Iron Man triggers DRC on decoders where DRC is set to auto. However, DRC does not lower the overall volume. In fact, it should help people hear dialog by reducing the loudness of special effects while increasing the loudness of quiet passages.

I've seen more than a few reports of problems with overall loudness and with the proper mix of effects and dialog when the S350 is hooked up directly to a TV. I don't recall seeing a "one size fits all" solution, unfortunately. I suspect it has something to do with the way the player downmixes hires tracks for stereo output.

Welcome to the forum!

You can spend thousands on a BD player so you should be more specific in the price ranges you are looking at for your budget.

For $500.00 the Oppo BD player is certainly one of the best regardless of price, but if you do not need all those HiRes music features and/or the analog 5.1/7.1 outputs then a Panasonic BD60 or Sony S360 are among the better models for the very fast updates for the dynamic copy protection used on the BD format. Samsung BD players have had a poor history of updating the firmware to play some new releases so IMO they should be avoided.
