Hi

Oddity Medium?

It depends what you want to achieve.
Do you want pin point accuracy in spatial resolution, or just a sense of immersion?
Generally the bigger the space, the more speakers you will need,
But not to many if you are using only FOA.
As Ambisonic order increases, so does the accuracy (especially high frequency), and the bigger the sweet spot.
The space also seems very reflective, which will have a bearing on spatial accuracy, but may assist immersion…

Not sure about IKO as I have never heard it.
It seems that it could achieve a sense of space, but not sure of it’s spatial accuracy.
It would need to bounce the beams off walls, which is a big variable, so would sound different depending where it was placed.
Maybe someone else could chime in here, as people seem to rave on about Apple HomePod being able to do just that.

Best

Steve
