In this paper, we consider applications of auditory display for representing audio system and audio signal characteristics. Conventional analytic representations of system characteristics, such as impulse response or non-linear distortion, rely on numeric and graphic communication. Alternatively, simply listening to the system under test can also reveal important aspects of its performance. Given that auditioning systems is so effective, it seems useful to develop higher-level auditory representations (auditory displays) of system performance parameters to exploit these listening abilities. For this purpose, we consider ways in which audio signals can be further transformed for auditory display, beyond the simple act of playing the sound.
