To me, unless its changed since I last heard Logic7 back in 2004 (via an $1,100 Harman/Kardon receiver), Logic7 is a processor similar to DPLII or DTS:Neo and is usually used with stereo sources to convert them to multichannel "surround" form.Lexicon Logic7 7.1
Hmmm. I found it to be *very* discrete. I hear distinct positioning of instruments and sounds that travel around the room at times........
Also unlike Mr. Urban, I was disappointed with the surround aspect. My usual setting is "2 clicks" to the rears, but even upping that to 4 clicks didn't offer much in the way of 'expanded sound field' in that direction. It was more noticeable on some selections than others, but my experience was basically of a widened front stereo effect, and a near decent spread to the sides. I thought perhaps I'm just not used to Dolby, but Jon's review has me wondering if I might have a less than perfect disc? For example, the first song had to be cranked to #22 on the volume just to hear it (normally set at 10). Subsequent songs were louder but still had to be cranked to the 18-19 level. Or if not the disc, perhaps something about my system didn't play nicely?
For the record (no pun intended), I too listened to this in my car:
Lexicon Logic7 7.1, 17 speakers.
Overall score: 7
