Traditional 3D audio systems often have a limited sweet spot for the user to perceive 3D effects successfully. In this paper, we present a personal 3D audio system with loudspeakers that has unlimited sweet spots. The idea is to have a camera track the user's head movement, and recompute the crosstalk canceller filters accordingly. As far as the authors are aware of, our system is the first non-intrusive 3D audio system that adapts to both the head position and orientation with six degrees of
