A re-quantization approach for digital audio signals using noise shaping by extra signal addition is studied. The approach has been proposed by the author but its properties have not been studied well. In this paper, the feature and performance of the approach is investigated. As a result, the noise shaping performance is a little better than the conventional one and perceptual evaluation is superior in terms of the fineness of the sound source image especially when the optimization horizon used in the additional signal calculation is wide. Since a wide horizon requires a lot of computation, a pruning scheme of the optimization is proposed to reduce the calculation time and the amount of computation is evaluated experimentally.
