      I actually thought that you exaggerated a little. But that's just my opinion.

          Actually inaccurate, but anyway....
          Streaming-services like Netflix and Spotify suffer from level-compression. But while, sure, many physical home-video-releases do suffer from that as well, there are also plenty of great ones that are well-balanced and dynamic. - Maybe you've been getting the wrong ones if you think it's all the same.
          (Yea yea, I know it's a joke. But it's just highly inaccurate.)

                        It's true. Sux in an apt when you have to constantly turn the volume up and down.

                          It's because most people have shit speakers istead of a good quality 5.1 or 7.1 surround setup.

Turn up the treble, turn down the base. If your receive has it, turn on the dynamic range compression. Or, if you don't have a receiver/speakers, check in your tv menu for "voice" audio modes which should help.
