In this paper, we investigate several types of nonlinearities used for the unique identification of receiving room impulse responses in stereo acoustic echo cancellation. The effectiveness is quantified by the mutual coherence of the transformed signals. The perceptual degradation is studied by psycho-acoustic experiments in terms of subjective quality and localization accuracy in the medial plane. The results indicate that, of the several nonlinearities considered, ideal half-wave rectification appears to be the best choice for speech. For music, the nonlinearity parameter of the ideal rectifier must be readjusted. The smoothed rectifier does not require this readjustment, but is a little more difficult to implement
