I don't know how to further clarify the Trinnov demos and the power of this technology.
I have demoed the technology at CES, at EHX, at the End Result Dealer Show in Pittsburgh, for Davis Distributing in Wheeling, WV, at the DCC Supply open house in Atlanta, at the CBI dealer show in Illinois. Every one of these demonstrations has used the Sherwood DSP code. Next week our sales manager for Europe will demonstrate the R-972 with the identical Sherwood/Trinnov code embedded completely in the R-972.
I believe two AVS Forum members have written about their Trinnov demonstration. Regarding the impact of the technology, both wrote that they "experienced" the demo. The didn't just listen to it. I promise their jaws dropped.
Although the guys at Trinnov tell me the code is only slightly simplified from their pro code, I will argue that is irrelevant.
Trinnov, as used in the R-972, measures speaker distance to the closest centimeter. Azimuth and elevation are accurate to plus or minus 1 degree. With both EQ and 3D remapping engaged, our version of Trinnov offers system performance improvement that, IMO, rivals the improvement Dolby Digital made over Dolby Pro Logic.
