ABC's Rotten Audio

Post by RadioCriminal » Fri Dec 07, 2012 6:42 pm

Wondering if anyone else finds ABC-TV's audio terribly harsh and poorly mixed? On many of their shows, the dialogue gets buried by music, even simple background sfx. I'm guessing they are pushing their 5.1 audio mixes beyond sanity for max loudness. I find their audio somewhat easier to take when I view the SD stereo feed but it's still pretty tough to listen to. I don't notice the same extremes on other networks. Am I too old school by just using a stereo HD TV with HDMI from the cable box? Any opinions from you guys with educated ears?

Happy holidays,

Mike (former jock/production guy)
If it's Radio Crime chances are I've done it or had it done to me.
