    The PASC coding technique used in the digital compact cassette (DCC) can handle an 18 bit dynamic range. A reliable measuring system was developed to evaluate the sound quality of DCC coding. By means of a number of different test situations, listeners were asked to indicate whether they heard an original or a PASC coded sound. By repetitive blind testing listeners have to score statistically bett... View full abstract»

    Discuss some of the principles of digital audio and then outlines example areas that are currently topical within the industry. However, it is assumed that the principles of uniform sampling, uniform amplitude quantization and dither are understood and that when used together, realise a digital channel with analogue-like characteristics where the signal is distorted only by bandlimitation and addi...

    In order to provide high-quality stereo reception to all receivers a digital audio broadcasting (DAB) system capable of reliable reception in vehicles and portables has been developed by the European collaborative project Eureka 147. The aim of DAB is to deliver near-CD quality stereo audio programmes in digital form to domestic receivers. One of the limitations of conventional FM radio is that th... View full abstract»

    The author makes a presentation based on the thesis that the quality of audio can only be finally judged in its intended use-what is `conveying meaningful programme material to human listeners'. He includes a basic description of the relevant parameters of human listeners including the concepts of threshold, loudness, equal-loudness contours, auditory frequency-selectivity View full abstract»

  • MiniDisc-what? why? how?

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):2/1 - 2/2

    The MiniDisc format has several key technologies that need closer inspection shock proof memory; recordable and pre-recorded disc types; magneto-optical recording; dual function pick-up; ATRAC (adaptive transform acoustic coding) data compression; and magnetic field modulation. These are examined in greater detail View full abstract»
