The realism of an AIA System becomes most obvious with closed eyes. Only when you ignore the distractions of the images on the screen and concentrate on the listening alone, you'll be able to fully appreciate the richness and the level of detail in the sound-scape. Quite frankly, who needs 3D images when you can have a 3D sound like this?
The beat of the music
Timing is even more important when listening to music because even smallest imperfections can destroy the musicality of any recording. But the AIA system excels here, too. Any music you play through it will shine and find a way under your skin. Listening to music is one thing. But its ability to let you feel the music is what really matters!
After one full hour having flown by, the lights are back on, and heart and soul are aching for more while the mind is trying to live up to the recent experience. Stefan Köpf, one of the creators of AIA, sits next to me and knowingly smiles as if to say "See, that's how it's done!" And he’s right: This is multichannel sound as it always was meant to be. Can we have some more of it, please?
