    I am trying to put together a list of matrix decoders that will do 7 channels from a stereo input. I know of Logic7 and Pro Logic IIx, do THX have a version? What others are available? It is worth mentioning this is for music replay so I have not mentioned Neo6 and Circle Surround, as IMHO they do not sound that natural with music. I am not trying to provoke a debate just need to put a list together.

    Denon's Widescreen 7.1 DSP mode creates 7.1 from a stereo or 5.1 source. Shame it's crap though. THX Ultra2 Cinema and Music modes create 7.1 but only from a 5.1 source.

    THX EX is a matrixed seven channel thing i think. My Lexicon to be will have logic 7 so that's pretty much all the Lexicons, which is meant to be better than anything until late, when the logic 2x or something comes into effect.

    7 channels "only"? Get a Yamaha DSP-Z9 with 9-Channel Stereo DSP. ;)

    Well, I guess it can also work in 7-channel mode (without the front effects) so it might have a place on your list if you want to include proprietary solutions.

    but if you rule out neo as it sounds unnatural surely that rules out pro-logicIIx aswell
