    I’m putting the pieces together. I was late to Sunday’s panel session because the tour to the Dub Stage returned an hour late. But, in this 37 speaker Auro 3D mixing room, one demo we heard was a wonderful church recording in Auro 9.1, which must have been a 2L recording. Fabulous! The inventor of Auro, Wilfried Van Baelen, gave most of the presentation. That was an unexpected bonus.

    • That would have been something wonderful to hear. Years ago I mixed my recoding of “The Pines of Rome” in 9.2 for Dolby and played it back at a trade show in Florida…it was very impressive.

  • Hi Mark,
    which (kind of) speakers were used during the 2L demo?

    • They were the big PMC towers with Bryston amplification.
