Yeh Dil Mange More

Picked from Home Entertainment Hacks :


roy leamon just wasn’t satisfied with 5.1 discrete audio channels, so he went to work hacking together a 24 channel sound system that he calls the lsd (laemon sound device). the 24 seperate speakers are controlled over firewire by a mac g5.
it’s a bit difficult to imagine what is possible with this system. you could realistically have a seperate sound source for each instrument in your recording. you could move a single source around the room in a way that a 5.1 system can only attempt to imitate. there are a lot of possibilities.
this one is not for the faint of heart or light of wallet. though it’s constructed from off the shelf components, roy estimates that it would take $12-15k to reproduce his system. that figure just shattered any hopes that i had of being a true audiophile. this is probably ok — i don’t have the skillz to juggle 12 turntables anyway.
