Earlier papers have described monophonic comparisons of loudspeakers in controlled listening tests that produce sound quality assessments with considerable consistency and order. Repeating the experiments in stereo, using a positional substitution technique, produced sound quality ratings with similarities and differences. For example, the ranking is similar, with hiighly-rated products retaining their high scores, however listeners were more forgiving of products with low scores from the monophonic tests. The relationship to measured performance is considered.
