Wave field synthesis is an auralization technique which allows to control the entire wave field within the entire listening area. However, reflections in the listening room interfere with the auralized wave field and may impair the spatial reproduction. Active listening room compensation aims at reducing these impairments by using the playback system. Due to the high number of playback channels used for wave field synthesis, the existing approaches to room compensation are not applicable. A novel approach to active room compensation overcomes these problems by a transformation from the space-time to the wave domain and application of wave-domain adaptive filtering.
