Surround Sound Beyond 5.1

I have been fortunate to be interested in audio over the past 50 years and have been witness, student and consumer of the progress. From the days of 78 rpm mono records to the LP stereo vinyl and to the advent of digital CD audio and now moving to the brink of multi-channel surround. For natural music recording the surround channels offer improved presentation with regard to imaging parameters such as perception of distance and spatial depth, spatial impression, envelopment (due to reverberation and/or ambient non-located and non-reflected sound, e.g. applause). I, for one, have moved to present image rather than a collection of sounds or instruments.
