You’ll see what I mean if you listen to one or a proper set up system even my elderly mother understands after being in various cars then sitting her in the drivers seat and getting her to close her eyes it brought a smile to her face bless her

It is but the left right and centre works well , the canton has canton effects that you can adjust low frequencies aren’t directional and come from beneath if that makes sense . I always have it set for driver and works well . Obviously if heard better systems and built better systems in my time but for an upgrade it’s not bad at all
Actually I can see the use of surround sound if one plays in orchestras as my children do. They of course do hear classical music from the other musicians sitting around them, not from the stage sitting in the audience. So the ideal for me would be standard sound in the front seats and surround sound in the second row with violins from the right rear door and cello from the left with percussion from under the spare wheel unless my children want to hear it as their audience does. Maybe for the next car!

The last time my elderly mother sat in a drivers seat was 40 or more years ago when, after moving my dads car forward in 1st gear down their driveway, she decided driving was too complicated for her and gave up. I remember it now, seeing this car creep forward past the sitting room window. My dad liked the surround sound on the TV. I found it a bit spooky. Not sure my mother cared one way or the other.

Very sorry to hear that. My mother loves listening to classical music except in the car, indeed I remember as a child my mother telling my father that if he installed a radio in the car she would not get in the car. Bit extreme, but there we are. Many years later, they did start having a radio in their cars but I don't remember it ever being on.

Modern TVs dont really produce a decent surround sound, not even a decent Dolby Atmos soundbar which are pretty good, you only get decent surround sound from a decent 7.1 receiver and seperate good quality speakers (I have Bowers & Wilkins - superior quality and Brirish).

The standard Kodiaq sound system could be likened to the TV sound, the Canton to a TV and Soundbar and the top of the range B&W systems to a dedicated receiver and speakers setup. The head unit is also key and I.would suggest Columbus is the only one to have.

It's all a scale of quality and what you are happy with.
It's a 'Kodiaq' and not a 'Bear' unless you are 5 years old.

I don't know the technical spec but they had speakers around the sitting room including behind the sofa, probably 6 or 10 of them.

Sounds like a 7.1 surround setup (8 speakers in total including sub).
