What is stereo? Why and how do we hear with spatial acuity? How can we realistically capture and reproduce the stereo sound field with just two microphones and two loudspeakers? These are but a few of the questions discussed in this in-depth tutorial.

The session begins with a discussion and demonstration of how the human ear-brain hearing system works. This is followed by a historical overview of the development stereophonic recording. The main body of the session presents a comprehensive analysis of the various common stereophonic microphone configurations and concludes with numerous recorded examples for evaluation and comparison of the techniques discussed.
