Ambiophonics theory and tools have been available
to all, not just an elite few, open source and royalty-free
for personal use. On the Internet, interest is growing: Wikipedia has several references, including a survey article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ambiophonics.
Google "Ambiophonics" and ~15,000 links are reported (some referring to Ambiophony, introduced in 1960 by Parkin to electronically augment reverberation in concert halls).
