Philips PUS 7303/12 (Audio set to "Multichannel Bypass")
Bose Soundbar 700 (Center: 30-50 Bass:100 Treble: 10-30) connected via HDMI-Arc
I have some issues with the dialogue clarity. It is incredebly hard to understand conversations on movies and series. I run the adaptiq setup several times with different seating positions and even walking across my living room (ca. 15m²).
If I increase the center speaker higher then 50 the voices sound as bad as my TV speakers. I have to set the soundbar to 50% volume to understand the dialogues while watching movies or series via Netflix and Amazon (even then it is difficult and explosions are way too loud).
It feels like the person is standing 20 meters behind my TV and sounds very muffled. Factory-Reset and disconnecting all cables for 10 minutes made no difference.
Here is a list with movies and series with this issue I tested so far:
- Stranger Things
- Sense 8
- Another Life
- Spider Man
I also tested "Suits" where a lot of conversations happens and there it is perfectly fine. I know about the dialogue mode but then I loose all the bass and the sound in general feels like I am using my TV-Speakers. Listening to music is also very good. I honestly don't know how I can solve this issue. Maybe here are some people who had the same problem.
