    Umm, I wonder if it's much different to, say, Yamaha soundbars.

    Media Player Classic (Home Cinema) has options for Top Front Left (etc) - would sure like to know what would happen if I clicked "enable".

    Wonder if anyone has a 26 (27 or 3 cubed minus one, for non-existant "middle" speaker) satelite setup, either available or in the works? That would be something - although the one sub might not be enough!

    I thought the whole point of WFS was that you had a large number of speakers close together in order to synthesise a wave field. I guess this must do some internal simulation of WFS and then decode it back to stereo, sounds just like another stereo 'enhancer' to me though, will probably make things sound unnatural and phasey.
