    Abstract

    As an extension to their academic teaching facilities, the School of Acoustics and Electronic Engineering at the University of Salford commissioned a set of studios to be used for various audio technology modules. In the main control room, facilities were required to enable monitoring both in surround sound format as well as conventional stereo. The control room would have a dual purpose in terms of monitoring format and the acoustic design would have to accommodate for this. This paper sets out a presentation of the design theory and techniques utilised. The design approach was to address issues like reflection free zone and suitable reverberation times for critical listening. This was attempted using a combination of commercially available material and purpose built units for acoustic control. Various sets of measurements showing the results at the various construction stages are presented. A subjective test is carried out using binaural recordings taken at beginning and end of the internal acoustic design in order to identify preferences and perceptible improvements.
