The SuperCinema® 3D Array™ is a remarkable new loudspeaker system that combines the elegant form factor of a soundbar with the extraordinary sonic performance of a true surround system. The aesthetically compelling visual appeal of a soundbar is undeniable. Unfortunately, both passive and active soundbars fail to achieve a truly convincing surround-sound experience when compared to a high-quality, fully discrete 5.1-channel surround system. GoldenEar Technology has developed a unique new technology soundbar that incorporates special 3D image optimization technology to achieve superbly lifelike, wide, deep 3D playback realism with virtually no acoustic coloration.
This technology, pioneered by Sandy Gross, effectively addresses certain problems that have been brought up recently in a 3D audio research project being conducted by Dr. Edgar Choueiri at Princeton University. Dr. Choueiri points out that the crosstalk that exists between the left and right loudspeakers and our contralateral ears, especially when the left and right channels are minimally separated (as we normally encounter in soundbar systems), is deleterious to our brain’s ability to fully experience and process the imaging cues so necessary for 3D imaging perception. These imaging cues are present in the recordings but dramatically corrupted in typical soundbar playback. >>More
