20 Jul The basis for Ambiophonics is that placing speakers close enough to your ears that you get no significant crosstalk or audio “leakage” from the. Have you ever heard of ambiophonics? Basically it’s a different technology to reproduce the real ambience present in recordings and. The Ambiophonics method. ○ Ambiophonics is an hybrid method for creating a realistic spatial reproduction of staged music, starting from two-channel.

As indicated above, it is fascinating that these frequency response anomalies are not clearly audible as changes in tone but rather manifest themselves as imprecisions in imaging and a sense that the music is canned.

One reason is that the delays involved in RACE are less than microseconds whereas even a very early room ambipphonics is delayed by milliseconds. The more reflective or larger the space, the longer lasting the reverberation. Imaging Beyond the Speaker Positions Another problem with stereophonic crosstalk ambiophonicz that it ambiophonivs the apparent stage width.

The physical barrier is showing that you don’t need any kind of DSP to enhance to 3D sound. Whether or not room correction has been engaged, one can use channel level and delay controls to fine tune the width and symmetry of the stage.

Is the whole point of this just to eliminate crosstalk? In general, mechanical or software crosstalk elimination is not fully effective or needed at very low bass frequencies and so the bass out-of-phase thinness effect, while much reduced, remains. A few measurements will accompany. Feel free to experiment with this sort of ambioponics.

Everything is so apparent and in your face.

With headphones I actually prefer crosstalk since I dislike wide images and like depth. As I stated previously, the technology at this point in time is more evolutionary than it is revelatory. Although we later describe an Ambiophonically optimized recording microphone arrangement, almost any mic setup used to produce two channel recordings works reasonably well when reproduced Ambiophonically.

Facing the rear speakers one just needs to get a wide stage with both a single left input and then a single right input as described above for the front speaker adjustments. A purist should face the rear speakers when making the adjustments. Started off deeply sceptical and doubtful, but I kept reading and began to see that me might have a point.


Also, in the absence of stereo crosstalk, comb filtering and central low-bass energy doubling are eliminated making truly flat acoustic response possible. At Hz the delay is one full wavelength and the sounds will add. There is no theoretically ideal angle for the speakers within reason within about degrees. View of right rear Soundlab Majestic direct sound path. July 20, – When assembling a system with both room correction and RACE crosstalk reduction, one must decide which should come first in the signal path.

Although the theory is questionable, the results were well received. Ambiophonics implemented using a browser with full RACE controls plus option for headphone listening.

As I remember, it got a bit wider and was much more distinct in the placement of individual instruments. Electronic recording and reproduction have now made it possible to turn rarefactions into compressions and vice-versa. I can hear when reverbs and delays clash with each other so much easier now.

By far the most intriguing work in this field has been done by JVC.

Ambiophonics, you have to try it

If you do not change the distance between the speakers, then moving the listening chair has, in effect, changed the speaker angle and you must change the Delay and Attenuation settings. Used in Ambiophonics for crosstalk cancellation and optional ambience convolution.

Normally, one changes abmiophonics two controls about the same percentage. InCarver Corporation incorporated filtering to attempt to pre-subtract anti-crosstalk in their analogue Carver C Control Console. That statement, which I know from personal experience to be completely false, totally discredits you as far as I am concerned. Shop Recordings Buyer’s Guides More.

The amgiophonics speakers together are called an Ambiodipole. The player will then split the center signal and add it to the main left and main right speakers. If you cannot tell one polarity from the other in your own system, don’t despair.

Here, crosstalk cancellation is optimum. In a concert hall, such a signal coming from the stage is sensed as coming from that stage regardless of which direction concert goers face.

It works but is a really weird experience. The first rule is that in any system, there can only be one set of Pinnae and these must be the end listeners, that is each listener hears the system with his own outer ears.


InRoland Corporation launched Roland Sound Space, [7] a system that created a 3D ambkophonics using stereo speakers. Pillobaffles, from RPG Diffusor Systems, can be hung like a drape from hooks on the ceiling and easily removed when ambiophonicss wanted, since they weigh only six pounds.

In other words, sound engineers can elect to use this technique during mixing and mastering. Shown are some of the 24 SoundLab Surrstat electrostatic ambience speakers being driven by convolvers using real stored concert-hall impulse responses, thus allowing Panorambiophonic reproduction of most existing stereo CDs or LPs. Similarly, if DTS or Dolby decoding is done in a processor, set it to divide the center channel equally between the left and right front channels.

In each case, one should adjust controls to achieve maximum stage width and symmetry. I have yet to hear it produce a great result on a high-end system. For sound sources that originate, say, far to ambiophonisc right of the right microphone, we can temporarily ignore the left channel microphone pickup.

Neither true-binaural dummy head with pinna recordings nor head tracking are required, as with headphone-binaural listening. This makes sense, since we are, listening to one sound source with one ear.

Then, having read in the past about ambio, and given that the sterephony of those all in one small wireless speaker is notoriously bad but their speaker arrangement with small spacing is ideal for ambioi decided to give it a try. When an instrument produces a sound, the sound consists of a series of alternating rarefactions and compressions of air. Dino and Vansen like this. A Delay value that is correct for a listener sitting centered will be incorrect if the listener moves off center.
