Okay, let me rephrase it: There seem to be some fans (and creators) of IR's on 
this list. And at least you seem to be a fan of binaural. So maybe someone 
could combine these two and produce a stereoset of IR's of the following 
 - A normal-to-good studio room with reasonable acoustics.
 - A pair of studio-speakers (which most of you seem to have) and a 
binaural-recording-mic in the optimal stereo-listening position.
The resulting sound (after feeding this IR into jack_convolve, etc.) should 
(from my experience and understanding) be as if you are listening the music 
in the studio...

Thats what I wish, perhaps someone has the resources to create this.

Thanks in advance,

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the 
Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be 
replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
