Abstract
A study with two experiments was carried out where participants rated the overall listening experience while listening to music excerpts. When rating the overall listening experience, participants are asked to take every aspect into account which seems important to them, including song, lyrics, mood and audio quality. In the first experiment participants rated music excerpts which were played back through three different single-/multi-channel systems (mono, stereo and surround). The analysis of the results revealed that the single-/multi-channel system had a significant effect on the overall listening experience. A second experiment was conducted to investigate the influence of the listening room on the overall listening experience, where the results showed that the listening room had a non-significant effect on the ratings.
