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.

    This Desire of sound. the desire of music.. i just read one comments on the source. Home Entertainments hacks

    If you’re in San Francisco, check out the Audium:

    http://www.audium.org/intro.html

    “Audium is the only theatre of its kind in the world, pioneering the exploration of space in music. The theatre’s 169 speakers bathe listeners in sounds that move past, over, and under them. ‘Sound sculptures’ are performed in darkness in the 49-seat theatre.”

    It’s also a very interesting example of 60’s pod-like architecture (for lack of a better term).”
