The audio and music industries have made incredible efforts to increase the quality of music recording and authentic replay possibilities for the consumer. The practicalities for high level audio and also video reproduction qualities have risen enormously. How can we bring the benefits of improved audio quality and surround sound to a larger group of common music consumers? What is the market situation for pure music surround productions (SACD/DVD-A), surround music videos (DVD), and movie DVDs? Do we as engineers influence, by the way we produce surround sound, the general acceptance of surround—especially in pure music listening? What ways of surround projection(s) can be effectively or easily received by the "common user"? What possibilities do we have in the future for mp3 surround, especially through headphone reproduction?
