Recently we have designed a new networked digital audio system that is far more flexible yet complicated than before. A main design parameter was sound quality, focusing on cognitive judgment as well as physical quality since they both significantly influence the final sound quality evaluation. To adopt a human centric based approach for the design of a flexible networked digital audio system, the authors redefine the concept of sound quality assessment that classifies a system’s overall quality into two attributes: a physical part as performance and a cognitive part as response.
