  Stereophonic sound - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Stereophonic sound, commonly called stereo, is the reproduction of sound, using more than one independent audio channels, through a symmetrical configuration of loudspeakers, in such a way as to create a pleasant and natural impression of sound heard from various directions as in natural hearing.
It is often opposed to monophonic sound, where audio is in the form of one channel, often centered in the sound field.
Bell Laboratories gave a demonstration of three-channel stereophonic sound on April 27, 1933 with a live transmission of the Philadelphia Orchestra from Philadelphia to Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. Leopold Stokowski, normally the orchestra's conductor, was present in Constitution Hall to control the sound mix.

 The Stereophonic Sound
In 1958 we were introduced to the stereo effect on records, which consisted of two separate channels recorded in the same groove known as stereophonic.
This is facilitated by recording sound with two appropriately positioned microphones and playing it back on two separated loudspeakers.
The monaural pickup is replaced by one with two coils, which sense the motion of the stylus at right angles to each groove wall; the inside wall is used as the left channel and the outside wall the right.

 STEREOPHONIC REPRODUCTION FROM FILM   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Besides reproducing practically the complete frequency range of the orchestra and an enhanced volume range, this system went further in interposing frequency and volume control between the pick-up microphones and the loud speakers to permit the conductor to secure effects unobtainable from the orchestra alone.
With music and sound so universally recorded on film for sound pictures, there would seem little difficulty to those not technically familiar with sound-picture systems in recording and reproducing a three-channel stereophonic program.
The maximum volume range that can be placed on a film is less than 50 db, while the stereophonic system, with the 10-db increase and decrease provided by the enhancement control, requires a range of 100 db.

In fact, after picking up the incredible "A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular" seven years later after its release, I found the sound to be just as fresh and contemporary in 2003.
I absolutely loathe "dated" sounding music...it shows that the artist is just making music that appeals to "the now", and not for generations to come.
A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular is a very different CD from the rest of the Hooverphonic albums.

Highlights include: "Barabas" with it's slowly building string samples and rhythms that kick in at just the right time; "Nr 9," that's a must-hear for everyone who wondered what Morella's Forest did with their sound; and "Sarangi," which sounds like the song Lush was always aiming for throughout their career.
This album takes the trip-hop sound and injects a healthy dose of 4AD into it.
