Perception of Spatial Distribution of Room Response Reproduced Using Different Loudspeaker Setups

Document Thumbnail

A listening test was conducted to assess the effect that different direct-to-reverberant ratios, loudspeaker setups and reverberation times have on the directional perception of a synthetic room response. The results show that the perceived spatial distribution of reverberation is dependent on the speaker setup, on the reverberation time and on the listener. Additionally, they show that a small amount of direct sound, even when barely masked by reverberation, shifts the overall perception to the front.
