Visit us to experience Personalised 3D Audio using the new Realiser A16 at the Munich High End Show, 5-8 May 2016, Hall 2 Stand D04.

The Realiser A16 demonstration at the Munich High End 2016 show follows Smyth Research’s traditional setup whereby listeners are invited to compare a real 7.1.4 ch loudspeaker home theatre system with a personalised virtual rendering of the same system over headphones as generated through the A16. Movie clips from the Dolby Atmos demonstration Blu-ray Disc are used as source material for the demonstration.
