Probably a stupid question but: - I have a DVD with a live-concert on it - I ripped the sound to ac3 - it sounds PERFECT with Nero 6 - then I used SEVERAL AC3->MP3 converters (decoders?) but then the sound is terrible (over-gained, is that what you call it??) - so I probably need to 'normalize' it? Looking at the mp3 in 'peak-mode' using Nero, it looks like both the L and R-channel are too 'loud' (it's almost a thick spot, (almost) no peaks ... What I don't get is: - why does it sound perfect in AC3-format, and is it 'over-gained' after conversion. In other words: why can't a decoder just do the job??? Thanks!
