A somewhat unusual request: I'd like to have some rather heavier-duty Dynamic Range Compression available as an option on the SP1.7.
As I may have mentioned before, I'm partially deaf. The way in which this manifests itself is in a loss of available dynamic range in my hearing. A normal person can hear things down to 0dB (depending on frequency) and has to leave the room with ears hurting at about 110dB. I, on the other hand, cannot hear anything at all below about 30dB (low or high frequencies) or below 50dB in the mid frequencies. But the loudest noise I can tolerate is actually quieter than a normal person - maybe 100dB. So my ears respond to only half the normal dynamic range.
Curiously, within that range, the accuracy of my ear and brain system is actually very good - I can instantly hear differences in distortion and tonal quality between different hifi components that many people with "normal" hearing have to struggle to detect at all.
But anyhow: as it is, even with the SP1.7 DRC set to "Late", I still spend a lot of time turning the volume up and down - up during quiet dialogue scenes, down for the explosions and screeching car tyres. I'm sure I'm not the only listener to have this sort of hearing loss - and even if I were, the "Late" DRC setting is still not actually that compressed. I'm not sure even a normal listener could really rely on it not to upset the neighbours or wake up a baby upstairs. So I think an option to step up the effect a bit, maybe even configure the level of compression from a menu option, would be a handy feature.
