YARRA 3DX Owners Thread I have opened this thread as YARRA 3DX owners to post various descriptions, comments and findings about this new device. What is (not) YARRA 3DX? Yarra 3DX is not just another soundbar. It’s a new device for 3D audio reproduction. The following lines are from Yarra Owner’s guide. “The patented MyBeam™ technology powering the YARRA 3DX uses beamforming to play immersive surround sound recorded in either 5.1 or 7.1, binaural recordings and stereo (or even quadraphonic) recordings. Beamforming is a signal processing technique used in a line array to achieve spatial selectivity. This is the key element that separates the YARRA 3DX from other soundbars. Most soundbars house 2 to 4 drivers that can only provide playback encoded to two channel sound (left and right). The YARRA 3DX is more than just a soundbar, it is a "line array" with 12 individually chambered 33 mm drivers. The algorithms used in the MyBeam™ technology decode 5.1, 7.1, stereo and binaural recordings and encode them for playback from the line array so that they are heard as they were intended.” Yarra 3DX was designed by Comhear Inc. and launched in September-October 2017 as part of crowdfunding campaigns on kickstarter and indiegogo websites. Both campaigns claimed March 2018 as fulfilment of Yarra 3DX units to backers. Due to not so clear circumstances, the actual delivery has started in June-July 2019.
