Is it possible to get a binaural audio option in SmartSDR like the one in PowerSDR?

I upgraded from a 3000 to a 6300 and am happy with the transition so far.

PowerSDR has a binaural setting that allows my audio amplifier DSP to
greatly widen the sound stage and reduce listening fatigue.

Is there any chance that SmartSDR will get this option any time soon?

    Hi Barry, If the answer to your question is ultimately no, let me offer another solution.  I have a Heil Proset 5 (HC5 Element).  It has a switch on the side which performs a similar function in hardware.  In-Phase vs Out-of-Phase audio.

    Thanks for the reply. I do not like wearing headphones and the expanded sound stage is very appealing. I hope Flex can make this happen as it was a very nice feature.

    Steve, any chance of an email (barry at barrycomer.com) or description how to set this up?
    I have not done much with VACs and the like?

    For the record I returned the 6300 and got the 6500 - nice radio.

    It would be very cool if this could be added to the 1.4 release 8-)

    As a software developer I understand the issues of last minute features.
