This technical paper reports the objective evaluation of sound field reproduction using wave field synthesis (WFS) in a listening room. WFS is an open-loop technology for spatial audio and it assumes a free field as the reproduction space. The main objective of this experiment was to understand how much, and how, WFS performance is reduced in-room situation in comparison with free-field situation. These undesirable effects are characterized by the coloration of the frequency response functions (FRFs) and the presence of echoes and reverberation in the reproduced impulse responses of the WFS system. This paper only addresses the objective performance (frequency response functions and wavefront shape; not the perceptual appreciation) of sound field reproduction. On that matter, this technical paper thus validates and complements other objective evaluations previously published and performed with various WFS systems in different listening rooms. A comparative review of spatial aliasing frequency definitions is also discussed in the context of sound field reproduction.
