That sounds pretty cool, Andrew. Just one more reason to make a pilgrimage to Axiom headquarters.
So are you guys going to be recording a lot of your own material for the sake of the research? It seems like the best way to be sure of what you're working with. You could make your own data bank of samples that theoretically should be prime candidates for showing off higher-resolution formats. Of course, this would mean making a state of the art recording studio to go along with your state of the art digital playback system. Ha ha. Or maybe you have connections to people with an appropriate recording studio already. If you record your own stuff, then you could offer what you ultimately end up with as your demo selections as downloads on your site, for end users to play around with themselves.
Are you going to be researching surround formats as well, or is this strictly stereo, to keep things simple?
