We do not condone the illegal sharing of music. There are many places on the internet where you can participate in such transactions, but QuadraphonicQuad is not one of them. We are here to encourage and support new multichannel releases from those companies that still provide them and as such the distribution of illegal copies of recordings is counter-productive to that effort. Any posts of this sort will be deleted without notification.

    Please try to avoid discussions that pit one format against another. Hint for new users: make liberal use of the search facilities here at QuadraphonicQuad. Our message base is an incredibly rich resource of detailed information on virtually all topics pertaining to surround-sound. You will be surprised at what you can find with a little digging!

Anyone have any experience listening to this? My daughter directed me an 8D Hans Zimmer song on YouTube and once there I found a bunch of stuff. The concept seems to be sound coming from 8 different locations, best listened to on headphones. I have decent headphones, and to be honest I'm not getting any type of front to rear, circular or orb type sound, just seems to be side to side. Interesting at first, then it seems to give me a 'sea sick' experience with the music sloshing back and forth. Anyway, strange experience.

Just through my computer speakers it sounds like a form of Q Sound! Catchy tune, though.
