Voices muffled out in 5.1 surround sound.
Posted on 2007-08-04
I bought a home theater system. Philips HTS3544/37 Home Theater System . It sounds great by the way but I seem to have a problem. On the remote there is a button for selecting surround (multi-channel) or stereo sound. Multi-channel enable has all the speakers working and has that surround effect feeling to it plus the sound effects. With stereo enabled on the front speakers works only, and sometimes during a movie the rear speakers will have sound for certain effects.
My problem is that during Multi-channel mode every audio sounds great, but when the people are talking you cant hear them as clear or its muffled out. Stereo has the voice audio sound crystal clear. Multi-channel has the voices so low or just not there. Even with volume turned up voice audio still very muffled while other audio is great.
in the manual it says that available output modes for Multi-channel are Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Pro Logic II.
I played a dvd with Dolby digital 5.1 sound and still the voices are still muffled out.
What is wrong?
