1. A computer system with a multi-channel audio sound system that dynamically adjusts audio playback based on a changeable position of a listener, the system comprising:

  • an imaging module operable to capture images of at least a portion of the listener;

    a processing module operable to receive the images and determine whether the listener has a position different from a previous position, wherein the processing unit is further operable to generate an adjustment signal when the position of the listener is different from the previous position; and

    an audio module operable to receive the adjustment signal and responsively adjust one or more audio parameters for one or more channels and produce an audio signal for each channel in the multi-channel audio system such that a previous optimal listening position is repositioned to the position of the listener.
