Audio Change in 2.36.31?

I just noticed today that my UHFS sounds like crap as compared to yesterday. I spent quite a bit of time trying to adjust it but didn't have any luck getting it to sound right. I realized that 2.36.31 was installed yesterday and maybe they "tweaked" it?

A few things I noticed:

- The front rear balance is now pushed way back at neutral as in voices are coming in from all around. It used to be that the neutral fader had a clear soundstage set around the front window. Now I've set the fader at +10 to try and replicate that however, voices are still scattered.

- Midrange has been pushed way down. There's a definitely loss of clarity in the midrange.

- Bass boosted

- Changes in Dolby have improved the Dolby "on" setting with a more accurate soundstage, however, Dolby "off" which used to sound great to me now sounds pretty crappy with wandering voices that get lost up front.

What happened? 2 days ago, I thought the sound was pretty good but today, I thought to myself, I paid $2500 for this?

Try doing a reboot on the car and then see how it sounds after that.
 
I concur that a reboot might make the most sense. It's highly unlikely they did anything else in 2.36.31 (and I haven't personally noticed any difference, FWIW), since it was 1) a security fix, and 2) on the eve of a massive catch-all update. No reason to push a change to sound balancing in a small security-based point release, methinks.

Is it like this on all sources?
