Hello audio freaks,
since more as 30 years I'm working in audio area, hear many loudspeaker reproductions of formidable tonal accuracy. But increasingly the discernment arise, true spatial depiction never happen by conventionally loudspeaker reproduction. Each primary source causing hundreds of mirror sources in all possible positions beyond the recording room walls, no chance for recreate such complex spatial pattern by some uncertain positioned phantom sources between a small numbers of reproduction channels.
In the late 90th I was stumbling in this matter across a publication regarding the wave field synthesis principle, which invented in the late 80th on the University of Delft. By such way should become possible the solution. It would be feasible long ago true spatial depiction by such approach, my question is, why the industry insist upon the conventionally ways so persistent.
