    I'll post my beef HERE then. There's a huge gap between digital/analog output devices and input devices. Stuff on the input end tends to cost much more than it should too.

    I'm too much of an arse to answer a survey when the prize is for UK-readers only... And no, I'm not too keen on fancypants 3D voice chat.

    As a marketing student they put a nearly useless question in there that won't give them great information.

    Would you like to use the 3D sound system if it was available in game?
    Yes/No

    Would you be happy to pay £25 a year to use this system.
    Yes/No

    I wouldn't be surprised if they just end up with 100% answers saying yes I would use it and 100% answers saying no I wouldn't pay. Very poor phrasing. Should be more like how much would you be prepared to pay and give price ranges.

    However, kudos to Dolby for doing their research in the first place. And good luck all entering!

    Entered.

    Some interesting questions in there and I agree with sotu1 on that question. It's odd but it seems like they already have an idea of how much they would want to charge it but the context is broken.

    Is it £20/Person or £20/Clan?

    Not that it matters really as its not me tallying up the results :)

    I agree with sout1, the questions were pretty poor.
    I wouldnt buy a yearly subscription, but a one of purchase price would be good though.

    Chance to win a 1000H? I'll take a bit of spam for that.

    This does seem to be a much more 'open' prize draw than usual; don't rate my chances!

    it looks like each person who takes the survey gets different values; i got £15. so they're probably spreading the answers around to see which one gets the most 'yes' responses. £15/yr aint too bad, but i still wouldn't pay :p
