Sound-Quality Evaluation – A Multi-Layered Problem
It is the purpose of this paper to provide an introduction to the subsequent articles originating from the eaa tutorium on "aurally-adequate sound-quality evaluation" which was held in Antwerp in March 1996. After a short recollection of the development of the concept of sound quality, a modern definition of product-sound quality is proposed and discussed. A system-oriented approach toward sound-quality evaluation is then introduced – with the aim of making sound-quality engineers aware of the various components and processes being involved in the formation of sound quality. Awareness of these components and processes is deemed to be a necessary foundation of proper sound-quality evaluation. The paper concludes with a discussion of practical consequences and offers some comments on the concept of typicalness in product-sound quality.
