Wave Field Synthesis Evaluation Using the Minimum Audible Angle in a Concert Hall

Document Thumbnail

Localization accuracy with Wave Field Synthesis (WFS) was estimated in a variable-acoustics concert hall. Contrary to previous studies, we employed a Minimum Audible Angle (MAA) paradigm as a measure of localization performance. The MAA was estimated for three different listening positions, three orientations of the listeners (\degrees{0},\degrees{60}, \degrees{90}) and two acoustical conditions. WFS was found to produce satisfying localization cues that depend little on the reverberation time of the room and only weakly on the position of the listener.
