Charlie van Dongen of Involve Audio will present on the topic:

From loudspeakers to listeners

the complete surround sound chain

The end to end surround sound reproduction chain has always had difficulties with loudspeaker placement and aiming, listener sweet spot restrictions, the effectiveness of listener envelopment and with listener immersion. Attempts to improve the listener experience have resulted in new recording and playback formats that have offered some degree of improvement but were often incompatible with existing equipment.

Charlie Van Dongen of Involve audio, based in Melbourne, Australia will talk about the end to end sound reproduction chain extending from the latest generation of loudspeaker transducers through amplifiers and render electronics that have been developed based on just how humans perceive sound.

This work, includes development of a range of modern electrostatic loudspeakers with matching electronics and amplifiers and new multi-channel render technologies that overcome many weaknesses yet remain compatible with the many surround sound formats available today.
