Circle Surround

Circle SurroundR ("CS") is a powerful and versatile multichannel decoder capable of delivering up to 5.1 channels of audio from any stereo, matrix encoded or Circle Surround encoded material. The first in the Circle Surround family of technologies, CS incorporates superior steering of surround information and remarkable center channel placement, while maintaining full-range bandwidth in each speaker. With Circle Surround, listeners may now enjoy their 5.1 home entertainment systems with any stereo source material including music on CDs, television programming, cable broadcasts and movies on VHS. It also decodes any matrix encoded material, providing better performance than older systems such as Dolby Pro Logic R. Optimal results can be achieved with playback of Circle Surround encoded source material.

Circle Surround Features:

Backwards Compatibility: Circle Surround delivers up to a 5.1 channel home theater experience from many formats, including stereo, Dolby SurroundR and down-mixed Dolby DigitalR & DTSR. It provides the most accurate decoding of surround material with true center channel dialog isolation and outstanding separation among the rear channels.

Smoother Steering:

CS is designed to immerse listeners in a realistic surround environment. The exceptional steering and channel separation of CS establishes new performance benchmarks for matrix surround decoding. Using patented dual-band technology, CS provides smoother steering between left and right surround channels and from front to rear surround channels compared to alternative technologies. The thrill of this experience can rival discrete 5.1 surround sound formats.

Full bandwidth:

CS playback provides full bandwidth in each channel for outstanding audio quality, which can be experienced from any source via a simple stereo connector.


CS decoding can be easily implemented for a wide variety of product applications including computers, laptops, game consoles, TVs, DVD players or Internet and web devices. Since the 5.1 CS encoded signal can be carried over standard stereo cables or broadcast methods, listeners in all types of environments can now experience breathtaking surround sound from the widest possible variety of sources.

Buer's Feedback:

I have been searching for a unit like the AV 5.1 Switch box for a long time ,,,,to use with Apple Airport Express.

Add 2 and a half pairs of good powered speakers and the result is quite remarkable to listen to. Excellent Surround reproduction. A steal at three times the price. Add a remote rear speaker trans/receiver for convenience.

Here is what I am using:
  • Akai RPM3 (three units… one for Center and two for rear)
  • M-Audio AV-40
  • Audioegine M1 trans/recieve
  • 5.1 AV-Switchbox
  • Apple Airport express
Please: advertise your AV 5.1 Switch box as a partner for the Apple Airport systems (or like WiFi)...

Many Thanks,

Henry D., Statham, VA - February 19, 2013
