OK for those still reading, it is a system dating from the 60s at least that tries to get a sense of space into recordings using extra information encoded in there. There are the "artificial head": systems used on records like (IIRC) Tangerine Dream or Popol Vuh - I can't find it. These were abandoned because you needed to use headphones to get it properly.
