In this paper we propose a method of extending monaural into stereophonic sound based on deep neural networks (DNNs). First, it is assumed that monaural signals are the mid signals for the extended stereo signals. In addition, the residual signals are obtained by performing the linear prediction (LP) analysis. The LP coefficients of monaural signals are converted into the line spectral frequency (LSF) coefficients. After that, the LSF coefficients are taken as the DNN features, and the features of the side signals are estimated from those of the mid signals. The performance of the proposed method is evaluated using a log spectral distortion (LSD) measure and a multiple stimuli with a hidden reference and anchor (MUSHRA) test. It is shown from the performance comparison that the proposed method provides lower LSD and higher MUSHRA score than a conventional method using hidden Markov model (HMM).
