    Default Single Speaker Unit Delivers Surround Sound

    A breakthrough or the next magic box?

    USA Today review


    Skeptical myself. Maybe it works but I doubt it would rival a properly set up HT rig and you're stuck with their electronics.

    Discuss. :D

    Altec Lansing and DCM both made similar products in the late 90's.

    Both failed somewhat miserably, nothing 'new' here to see.

    The USA Today review comes from some dork with a Sony Dreamtheater all-in-one system and quotes Bose as having "Cinematic Performance"

    Yeah, he's a qualified audiophile!

    Yep....nothing to see here. Move along!

    There is a similar product being offered from ADS at this time, and that crowd has never made a bad product.

    You can do a lot with processing and "fooling" the ear and brain. But sooner or later physics and the laws of audio engineering are going to kick in.

    You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.. but you might be able to make a passable wallet.

    Lot of people probably don't want all the **** associated with HT messing up their living environment. Could be a product for them. The ADS product I think was $329 at www.technoscout.com

    Could it POSSIBLY be worse than a Wave Radio? No.

    It's not for me, it's not for you, but it doesn't make it not for somebody, or uninteresting.

    Those are ex-German rocket guys over there. It doesn't get much better than that.

    I would rather wake up with no hair on my body, and a goatee hanging from my arse.
