The Acoustics and Psychoacoustics of Loudspeakers and Rooms-The Stereo Past and the Multichannel Future

At the point of delivering recorded sounds to listeners, the complex interactions of loudspeakers, rooms, and listeners present many challenges to delivering satisfying listening experiences.

However, multichannel audio changes the rules and sets new requirements for optimum listening conditions, not all of which are yet understood. Underlying all of this, though, are the basic requirements for timbral accuracy-good sound quality. In this respect there is a need for the recording industry to catch up to the highest standards of consumer audio if the -art- is to be adequately preserved.
