Spaciousness and Localization in Listening Rooms and Their Effects on the Recording Technique
Low-frequency localization and spaciousness are altered by conventional loudspeakers and positions, especially in small (40 m(3) or less) listening rooms. Many common loudspeaker placements produce poor spaciousness and reduced low-frequency separation when excited by either coincident or pan-potted recordings. When this effect is corrected electronically by increasing separation at low frequencies, coincident microphone techniques produce superior sounding recordings in a wide variety of playback environments.
