The Active Listening Room. A Novel Approach to Early Reflection Manipulation in Critical Listening Rooms

Document Thumbnail

A novel method of controlling reflections, using flat panel loudspeakers, in a reference listening room is described. Models and implementations are presented in the case of single-transducer monophonic reproduction as well as two-channel and five-channel stereophonic arrangements. The results of a pilot listening test showed that differences in reflection patterns were readily detected by a panel of experienced listeners.
