Indeed, I find the HE 400 had a very 3D sound to it! Watching movies it scared teh tar out of me xD, I'd keep hearing foot steps and doors closing behind me [happening in movie but projected very realisticlly]
still a decent stero movie recording should have the 7.1 sound already. If your have your mic centered on your Actor, then natrually sound from left right, behind, in front ect... would be recorded. Dolby 7.1 more than likely enahces that, but it's still there. An I found the HE 400 did a nice job of projecting that 3D sound
