I use to have a receiver with 5.1 Bose setup and in movies the explosions would be deafening but the talking would be indistinguishable. I switched everything to using only a soundbar, LG sl10yg using HDMI (arc) from Samsung TV. This didn’t resolve anything.... it is basically the same. It doesn’t matter if playing a physical disc such as dvd or blue ray or using a streaming service such as Netflix. Background sounds are loud and foreground (talking) sounds are soft. While watching movies it is literally having a remote in the hand to turn it up during talking scenes and turning down the volume during loud scenes. Obviously this doesn’t work well in scenes where they are talking with background noise taking place (people talking inside a helicopter scene). The room the equipment is in is circular in shape where if you sit in the dead center all sounds, even in real life talking, sounds weird. Maybe the physical design of the room is the problem? Any suggestions or recommendations?
