I’ve watched the first two episodes of Masters of the Air on TV+. I probably should have done this in the first episode, but for the second episode I turned on subtitles as in places I was struggling to understand what was being said. I notice this more often these days in films and series on streaming services, sound feels more muffled in places.

I’m pretty sure, or would like to think that it is not aging ears. Having read similar comments elsewhere, I wonder if there have been changes in filming practices, or more specifically sound recording?
