"This new technology will go a long way with anyone who has
a true musician's ear. The all-encompassing sound of 'AstoundSound'

to be heard the way they are meant to be heard."

"This is pretty amazing technology. With only 2 speakers (or
headphones) the audio field is dramatically expanded. It makes a pan
pot go to "11"! I'm very impressed that it doesn't make music sound
gimmicky like surround does – it just opens up the palette for
placement. When available, the Pro-tools plug-in will rock. Once you
compare a mix with, and then without, it's almost like going back to
mono. This could also really benefit home theater users who don't
want to deal with rear speaker placement and wires. Wow."
