In our last summer concert which I helped organize, and the winter
concert a couple of weeks ago which I organized I played a couple of
"oldies", 4 channel pieces by John Chowning using an 8 speaker ring and
4 virtual speakers rendered through 3rd order ambisonics.

The highly subjective non-scientific impression is that it does sound
better than just 4 speakers. If the decoder is properly calibrated then
your 4 virtual speakers will be in the exact right position which helps.
Plus the sources are "diffuse" as you imagine.

The summer concert was done outdoors in the backyard of our building
(ie: no real room to interfere with the spatialization cues) and some
people claimed it was the best rendering of Turenas they had ever
heard[*]

[*] this may also have to do with the fact that we open the grounds at
7pm for picnic'ing and the concert starts at 8pm - with proper amounts
of cheese, bread and wine by 8pm _everything_ sounds _much_ better :-).
