George plays high resolution stereo, 5.1 and 3D recordings from his fabulous back catalogue, commenting on production techniques and the most appropriate listening format considering each track. George and Thomas discuss the Inception Dilemma, and how recordings come across in this particular room. Seats are limited to keep playback variation at bay, and the session is concluded with Q&A.

3D audio formats do not guarantee listener envelopment, or better control of a listening experience than stereo has to offer. In this masterclass series, we discuss factors of recording, mixing and reproduction that make "immersive" worth the effort. Listening examples are all linear audio and have never been lossy data reduced.
