It seems to be more prevalent lately. That annoying increasing level of background music on tv drama shows, often just before a commercial. It drowns out the characters last few words.

Might just be the way which your speakers/TV are processing the soundtrack.

If you're watching regular TV, might not apply. If you're watching a DVD or Blu-Ray, then you're probably set up for a 7.1 or 7.2 (coming out of the player) with your TV/soundbar set up for 2.0 or 2.1.

Because of this type scenario, the center channel might be a bit muted. If this is the case, adjusting the output of the player may solve the issue.

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

Thanks for your response. We have an older YAMAHA YAS-101 sound bar, 30w audio output. The manual says it's 2.2, with simulated 7.1 surround sound(?) It's connected to a SHARP Equos, 35w audio output. We also have a separate YAMAHA subwoofer. The tv has ARC, optic and HDMI so it can apparently accept newer soundbars.

This is experienced with tv programming, no DVD or Blu-Ray. We don't experience it when watching Prime programs. The tv speakers are muted as we were experiencing a reverberation between the soundbar and tv speakers.

Soundbar recommendations would be appreciated. Current specs are 35"L x 4.5"D x 4"H. Something more compact would be fine.

Check your TV settings. There might be a option to help control the volume spikes.

I'm checking into that now. Funny thing is this doesn't occur during any other type of programming. It's drama music.
