I think PS2 audio could be greatly improved if they did one thing:In our V90cc with the Bowers & Wilkins system it makes the sound feel like you're listening to the music being played specifically for you, in that space. The the sound surrounds you, but in a realistic way, where sound, like vocals, comes front front center, but individual instrument sounds can travel and reverb from different spaces around, just like it would if you were sitting listening to a the music live. In fact, I usually don't like recordings of live concerts, but in that car, if you turn it on and crank it up, and close your eyes, you could absolutely be fooled into thinking you were sitting on the concert floor the way you can hear the crowd sounds distinctly split to your left, right and rear. It's awesome. And it works great for rock, EDM, and classical (what's in our usual rotation).
Now, on the Polestar 2....
I have no idea what's going on, because turning on the surround function just absolutely destroys the sound. There's clearly an issue with it splitting channels and being able to make use of the rear speakers properly.
•Give more balance to the rear speakers relative to the front.
I'm not sure if that's possible given their size and location, but it would help to create an enveloping, immersive sound. (And we would need a fader to control it.)
