[Feature] When it comes to evaluating advanced spatial audio or immersive audio technology there may be advantages to adopting some form of reference-free evaluation. There’s also the question of defining immersion carefully enough, and a comprehensive attempt at doing this in the audio context has now been undertaken. We find that non-experienced listeners may not have the same preference patterns as experienced ones in this context, and that additional low-slung loudspeakers can improve the results in certain cases. Finally, the potential of soundbar technology is considered.
