Ambiophonics. Achieving Physiological Realism in Music Recording and Reproduction

Document Thumbnail

Ambiophonics, is the logical successor, to stereophonics, 5.1, 6,0, 7,1, 10.2, or Ambisonics in the periphonic recording and reproduction of frontally staged music or drama. We show how, optimally, only two recording media channels, driving a multi-speaker surround Ambiophonic system, can consistently generate a "you are there" sound field that the domestic concert hall listener can sense has normal binaural physiological verisimilitude. Ambiophonics can deliver palpable realism even from standard two media channel recordings such as the existing library of LPs, CDs, DVDs, or SACDs or via super-wide-stage recordings made using an Ambiophone.
