In this paper we evaluate two different techniques for spatial rendering using various linear array arrangements and filter lengths in the context of their perceived ability to render a given sound event. The two techniques explored are a recently introduced numerical technique and a conventional crosstalk cancellation system. Extensive perceptual evaluations were conducted in order to evaluate the perceived quality of the proposed and conventional synthesis methods using a binaural representation over headphones. The data were compiled to show the relationship between linear array loudspeaker arrangement, reproduction angle, filter length, and subjective mean opinion scores.
