An overview is presented of some theoretical and practical problems in the experimental design of preference-based listening tests on loudspeakers. Measurement scales, statistical design techniques, and physical, procedural, and psychological variables are considered. Some consequences of present limitations in observation and theory are discussed. Specific improvements in design strategy are suggested.
