* The Intro edition does not come with any hardware and produces only u-BACCH filters, which give 3D sound over loudpseakers (with no head tracking) based on the user's input of two tape measuremets of the listening geometry. u-BACCH filters come close to the performance of regular BACCH filters, which rely on acoustic measuremts using the BACCH-BM in-ear mic, if the loudspeakers are well-matched in frequency and phase.
