Alesis Compressor/limiter

I got tired of continuously changing the volume in movies I watch - from quiet whispers to huge explosions and gunfire, so I tried using a compressor/limiter usually used for recording. The Alesis 3630 is relatively inexpensive, and is easy to set up. It also has blinking lights, and I like blinking lights :) I've watched a few action movies so far, and it works great. It's transparent in that you don't notice that it's working.
