15.1 Surround Sound anyone?

Recommended Posts

Check out this AES Audio For New Realities tech committee press release and the surround system in this picture from it:





Dr. Gavin Kearney, Leader of AES Technical Committee Group On Audio for New Realities



Unless I have miscounted, it looks like a 7.1 surround sound system, but they've taken it further with an additional eight monitors - four placed above the normal horizontal plane that the bulk of the monitors sit on, and four beneath it. I suspect this will result in a more three-dimensional system, where you can not only pinpoint sounds from in front, to the sides or behind you, but in all those dimensions PLUS above or beneath you.


Wouldn't it be nice if the average end listener used a system like that? Think of the fun we could have with the mixes! ;)
