Results of a series of subjective listening tests support the hypothesis that diffuse acoustic radiators, such as distributed-mode loudspeakers (DML), lessen the degradation caused by room acoustics on stereophonic localization. In early tests, a pair of DMLs performed at least as well as quality two-way cone-in-box loudspeakers. Further experiments to confirm the hypothesis are reported.
