What you are asking for is not any more 'true surround' than what he offers. What you are asking for is to place sounds in the surround channels and that is an esthetic decision. In fact, with traditional classical music, all the sources are up-front and only ambience is in the surround.aquadad said:Although I respect where he is coming from in wanting to capture the essence of the hall itself, almost as if it too were an instrument, I am going to have to pass on this title for now in my quest to find a true surround sound classical title.
That's what bass management is for. The .1 channel is for LFE: EFFECTS.'aquadad said:I agree with him about the bass channel when it is synthesized it's pretty much a waste of disc space. But when done properly, representing bass instrumentation it's awesome.
I am not disputing your desire for a particular configuration but you should accept that, even as a paying customer, your preferences are not shared by all producers or, in fact, all other paying customers. As I said, if you want the sounds all around you, try TaceT.
