Synchronous code-division multiple-access (CDMA) communication systems with randomly chosen spreading sequences and capacity-achieving forward error correction coding are analyzed in terms of spectral efficiency. Emphasis is on the penalties paid by applying single-user coding in conjunction with suboptimal multiuser receivers as opposed to optimal joint decoding which involves complexity that is exponential in the number of users times the code word length. The conventional, the decorrelating, and the (re-encoded) decorrelating decision-feedback detectors are analyzed in the nonasymptotic case for spherical random sequences. The re-encoded minimum mean-squared error (MMSE) decision-feedback receiver achieving the same performance as joint multiuser decoding for equal power users is shown to be suboptimal in the case of equal rates
