Abstract

After finishing the design of the sound reproduction system, it is necessary and important to evaluate how much each component of the sound reproduction system affects the final quality of audio. In this paper, we present an intelligent diagnostics for sound reproduction system. It is based on PEAQ(ITU-R BS. 1387) and artificial neural networks. This method makes it possible to consider the human preferences for various genres of music which differ from nation to nation and culture to culture.
