Stereo sound here - we had a very hard time hearing dialogue clearly. I was assuming the surround mix would be clear. Sounds like its just poorly engineered.dialogue is occasionally a problem with this show on the Atmos track on my expensive home theater setup. Maybe the stereo track is clearer, I didn't try it but as far as Atmos tracks go, this one is average or below. I found myself turning on subtitles or turning it up too and I have legitimate JBL cinema speakers of the type commercial cinemas use (CBT 70j-1) and a Denon 7200wa flagship AVR that is all calibrated correctly and validated with a calibrated omnimic. Having owned this setup for a couple years and watched a bunch of stuff, I can assure you it isn't the speakers or gear. Some of the dialogue is mixed low, on occassion, not bad, just not a showcase.
Everyone low-talks and they mix it strangely. Oddly, Geralt the original low talker is the one we hear the best.
