When the spatial quality of reproduced sound is to be assessed, knowledge of the constituent dimensions of that quality is essential, since it is known to be multidimensional. The dimensions could be indicated by attributes describing them. Attributes encountered during a previous experiment were considered by a group of subjects, and their responses were analyzed for finding the attributes’ applicability and dimensionality over an extended number of sound stimuli.
