I have just acquired the H3D and have yet to experiment. I have
contacted Holophone on the exact DPA capsules they used in the h3D. I
believe it should be the same. When I get the response I will post it.

The Tetramic looks great perhaps that system will be my next purchase!
I like the H3D because of its ease of use and discrete channels with
no need to use special software to decode or translate the audio into
surround. The software does looks very flexible and I am interested in
researching more about it and more importantly hearing the results.

Thanks for the suggestion!
