Realistic sound reproduction in the home implies solution of those problems which accompany spatial compression. The author draws upon his wide experience in this subject to describe the procedure and results of the psychoacoustical experiments designed to isolate the factors which contribute realism to sound reproduction in home-size listening rooms. He concludes that while true concert-hall acoustics cannot be simulated, the mechanical and electronic means to achieve a reasonable facsimile are available, and describes such a system for the playback of stereophonic magnetic tapes.
