Today I called a friend of mine on two lines to talk in Stereo. Has anyone on
this board ever done something like that?

That is not stereo, you are hearing the same sound from two sources, stereo
is separate sounds.

The "same sound" picked up from two microphones and heard in two receivers or
speakers, *is* stereo.

Many years ago, when things were slow on the night-shift I used to set-up calls
back to myself using a long-distance testboard so I could hear the delay in my
voice. That's an extreme (echo) stereo effect.

By the way how many speakers are required to produce a "live" audio? (so you
can't differentiate if you're hearing it live or if its a recording) My guess
is infinitely many, but not sure ...

It's too subjective to say. People have been fooled under controlled
conditions many times. I was fooled by my own binaural recordings (played
back through headphones) on several occasions. Playing back household
noises, sitting facing the same direction as the original microphone
orientation is eerily realistic.

this brings up a good point. Since binaural basically records what each ear
would hear, is one speaker per ear really enough? Can one ear determine the
direction the sound is entering?

I'm not an expert on acoustics (I'm an electronics & software engineer by
trade), but obviously binaural audio using headphones is quite adequate for
complete realism, because it removes the confusion of the room adding
reflections to the recording. I think good surround over speakers might
require more than two, but two do a pretty good job under the right
circumstances.
