General-purpose Ambisonic playback systems for electroacoustic concerts - a practical approach

At the Ambisonics Symposium 2010 (hosted by IRCAM in Paris), I presented a paper on using a 3rd-order Ambisonic rig to present non-Ambisonic electro-acoustic works with virtual speakers.
The paper is intended as a how-to for people who wish to employ similar techniques for their own concert events. It includes a report on informal listening tests that might be interesting as a starting point for further study.
