Soundbar 700 pumping compression issue
I have just purchased the BOSE 700 Soundbar to be used with my OLED LG TV. I have updated the software and gone through the official setup as per the app. My serial number is
Although the overall sound is good, I am finding that the compression between mid/side is very harsh.
Picture a scene where rain drops are falling, and the actors are not talking. As soon as the actors talk, the sound of the rain instantly disappears and then and gradually builds up again in volume until someone speaks again. This is what i can best describe as a pumping compressor effect.
Much like adverts on commercial pop radio stations.
Is there a way to disable it? or better still, add a feature in the software that allows the user to choose how strong they want the compressor to work?
I have tested this with multiple sources, with dialogue mode turned on and off, and with the adaptQ calibration turn on and off.
Frustratingly I've just upgraded to the Bose from an older LG SN7C soundbar which doesn't have the compressor problem
I've also seen many forums and chats online reporting this issue specifically to Bose too.
Can you fix this with a software update?
