Thank you for taking the time.

I am finding ambisonics to be more than a mild curiosity. I don't know if it's the way of the future, or merely a trend, but I honestly don't care. I like it and want to dive into it just for the fun :-)

In terms of a standard home recording studio (not used to make money and only for making personal music for one's self that no one cares about :-P ) currently configured for stereo (as in ONLY two outs to two speakers), what would you recommend:

1) How many outputs to start?
2) Tracking headphones, surround monitors, or both?
3) What kind of software or plugins are required to get a PC based DAW like Cubase, Reaper, etc ready for mixing in ambisoncis?
4) What else am I missing?
5) As we all know, the sky is the limit when it comes to cost of gear, but what would be a good amount to budget - just to get started?

Thanks again!
