I wonder if this technology of yours would scale to PA applications, Ted? I was at a small festival the other day watching an acoustic jazz group. They had the usual arrangement with a couple of speakers either side of the stage, and as usual, the sound was OK near the sound man, but quite poor off axis. Acoustic bass suffers most, I guess because of phasing issues between the two sides.

Amplifying small acoustic groups in open air seems to be about the worst case scenario of sound reinforcement, and I don’t think I’ve ever heard it sound good. So much so that people pretty much seem to expect it to be bad. I wonder if using a single sound source would help significantly.
