    In summer 2013, at Stanford University’s Bing Concert Hall, keyboardist and jazz pioneer Herbie Hancock rolled out a concept he has been fascinated with for over 20 years. Using a multichannel surround system from Meyer Sound, Hancock brought the surround sound of movie theatres to a one-of-a-kind live concert experience that cannot be heard elsewhere. To realize Hancock’s vision, Meyer Sound set up a system with 45 loudspeakers and 28 channels. The heart of the system was the SpaceMap multichannel… View this story

    About 15 or so years ago, I went to a rock concert at a stadium in Chicago. Having heard this band’s best-recorded music on some excellent small systems, including high-end four-channel setups, I looked forward to this concert with great anticipation.

Unfortunately, the outcome proved just the opposite - talk about disappointing! It… View this story
