Thanks for the link. Actually I've been to Musikmesse and had a look at both the Phonitor 2 and the Mini there, but did not take any photos.
Meanwhile I came around to play with the Matrix section of the Phonitor 2. Of course it depends on the source material but the effect itself is well done: the performance moves out of your head and in front of you with a much more realistic positioning, narrowed down from 180° panorama to something speaker-like. Crossfeed alone is more sublime and often hard to notice.
What still surprises me most is the enormous level of details, without putting up a show, i.e. they are just there and easy to spot, but not in-your-face trying to impress you.
