Spaciousness and Localization in Listening Rooms: How to Make Coincident Recording Sound as Spacious as Spaced Microphone Arrays
Examining low frequency localization and spaciousness in typical listening rooms reveals that low frequency separation is altered by conventional loudspeakers and positions, with many common placements producing poor spaciousness when excited by either coincident or pan potted recordings. Spaciousness and localization can be enhanced electronically, and when this is done coincident microphone techniques can produce superior sounding recordings in a wide variety of playback environments.
