Default My DD+ Sounds better Then TrueHD?

Hi

I have the HD-E1 and my DD+ Sounds Much more detailed then DDTrueHD?

Why is this as I have set the settings to PCM.

I also have the Panasonic SA-XR 700(that new receiver)
On the display of the receiver it says PCM 96.0

Please Help

it probably sounds louder, because it is.

Try setting the SPDIF to "Bitstream" and your HDMI to "Auto." Your display on your receiver should read 48Khz not 96Khz. This happens for some reason when you have SPDIF set to PCM.

Most people mistake louder for "better" and "more detailed", when in fact it's just louder. TrueHD is often set for a lower default volume than DD+. You may have to compensate by turning the volume up a couple notches.

Ideally, you should level match the two tracks with a sound level meter before making any judgements about one being better than the other.
