PLII puts a bit more emphasis on the center channel perhaps

PLII is a wideband processor (as is Logic7), while Neo (and Neural) are multiband processors. The best explanation of Neo is in the patent .
Multiband has benefits--it can select certain frequencies for one output and others for a different output. That also brings some new problems--splittng the spectrum among different speakers isn't easy to do without creating some unnatural spectral side effects. One reason Neo went thru several at least 4 revisions was, among other things, to improve these side effects, and over time, it has indeed improved.
Regardless of the technology, they all had to juggle among myriad tradeoffs. It's very subjective.

Thanks for that Roger.
Care to tells us a bit about how PLII compares to Meridian TriField?
I found TriField to be the most transparent 2 - > multi Ch. process around.
Is PLII- music based on Gerzon's work?
