WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?
The AstoundStereo Expander is always running in the background processing audio from all applications. It takes any stereo audio as input and produces a significantly wider stereo image, while preserving center information (e.g. vocals or center staged instruments), in real time. The result is a wider, fuller and richer listening experience which can be heard while playing music, a DVD, a video game or any application that produces audio.
WHAT WAS IT LIKE?
Astound Stereo 1.2 is an audio imaging program which allows for real-time processing of audio signals. The Astound 4D technology was designed to analyze audio signals and maximize the coverage with regards to the number of audio channel output available. Gen Audio boasts a 360 degree sound immersion with as little as two channels.
You can run it with WinAmp or Itunes or even Windows Media Player, so that you can remix your own MP3s. Plus, there’s no end to what it can play. I tested it out on everything from The GoGos to Wanda Jackson to The Misfits to Rush.
The success of AstoundSound is that it sounds like it was tuned with musicians ears instead of engineers ears. Id also swear that that AstoundSound enhanced the clarity and definition of the instruments.
“Limelight” by Rush was like having The God of Rock kicking me in the ear balls with thunder. Thank you, AstoundStereo!
