Is the Auro 3D plug in Wwise only designed for VR audio? Does it have benefits to standard stereo or 5.1 formats?

This plugin is mostly useful for binaural (headphone listening) it is an HRTF encoder. The main advantage is that it works on a lot of different platforms. There are several platform specific HRTF plugins, the one that works on more and is free is the Google Resonance plugin. But it is not supported  on all platforms. There would be no advantage to listeners with standard stereo monitoring and it would not be benficial to listners who had , 5.1 or 7.1 setups
