    A literature study and listening tests have been conducted to contribute to an understanding of the stereophonic effect as a function of frequency. The literature study failed to reveal tests showing loss of stereophonic direction for any part of the audio spectrum and pointed to arrival time difference of the transient portion of sound waves as the significant contributor to stereophonic percepti...

    Subjective listening tests have been completed which indicate that stereo in any of the forms compared is preferred over monaural, but normal stereo from two full range speakers well physically separated is, in all probability, the most preferred. View full abstract»

    The primary aim of this work has been to develop a stereophonic system for recorded music, using a small, inexpensive and practical cartridge with magnetic tape as the information carrier. In order to make the cost of the recorded cartridge comparable with a disk containing an equivalent amount of music, it was realized that basic developments in magnetic recording such as efficiency of recording ...

    Four stereo systems are compared: 1) 3 microphones, 3 independent transmission means or "tracks," and 3 speaker output or "channels," designated 3-3-3. 2) 3 microphones, 2 sound tracks and 3 outputs using a bridging or "derived" center channel, designated 3-2-3. 3) 2 microphones, 2 tracks, 3 outputs with derived center, designated 2-2-3. 4) A stereo microphone pair in a single housing with stereo ...

    Playback localization plots, similar to the technique employed by Steinberg and Snow in the Bell Laboratory experiments of 1933, afford perhaps the only means of evaluating quantitatively the performance of representative stereophonic systems. In the present tests, which deal with two-channel systems comprising a center bridged loudspeaker in addition to the two flanking loudspeakers, it is seen t... View full abstract»

    Magnetic tape may be offered in cartridge form at a price competitive with phonograph disks. Cartridges of different sizes are designed either for high quality or for maximum tape economy. All of these will operate on present-day machines, as well as on automatic designs. A cartridge changer allows records to be played in sequence. The erase feature offers interesting possibilities for sale of pur... View full abstract»
