The control room at the ‘Universidad de Vigo’ was built for the purpose of assessing small audio artefacts, such as listening analytically to coded material with different data rates. It follows a non-environment design that minimises the influence of the room. The use of such a room as a 5.1 surround listening room will be analysed according to international recommendations. This research includes the study of the electro-acoustic behaviour of loudspeakers, geometric and acoustic properties of the room, and sound field conditions. A discussion of some divergences and implications for its use when performing surround listening tests follows the measurement results.
