I think this is his misunderstanding of dynamic range, and is not an
accurate statement.  There is no amplification, it is just that the sensor
has a wider dynamic range than typical film does.

Just like a scanner that has a higher dynamic range (what the scanner
manufacturers typically call DMax, which isn't really right...but if it is
zero referenced, ie, DMin is 0, than it is the same) gets more detail out of
the darker areas of film, so will a digital cameras sensor.
